Well, I did it! I got married! It was wonderful – everything turned out just beautifully, not the very least my hair! When we were talking about getting married, my boyfriend, I mean husband (!) requested that I wear it down and curly. Done and done! It was so easy – I just pulled a couple of pieces back at the sides, secured them with a couple of bobby pins, smoothed the fuzzies with conditioner and water, and put some shea butter on the ends. It took me longer to type that sentence than it did to fix my hair! No sitting in a salon for hours and hours getting my hair ironed and sprayed into an untouchable helmet.
Two years ago, I would never have dreamed of attempting curly hair on an occasion as important as my wedding. Because of yours and Teri’s site (I found you both in December and have worn my hair curly since January), I trusted my curls and they didn’t disappoint! Thank you so much for doing what you do – you’re an invaluable source of support and believe me when I tell you, you help people!! I’m 33 years old and I never knew what the heck to do with my hair – and my poor (Mexican) mother didn’t have the first clue! I started getting relaxers at 16 and stopped at 23 and became a slave to my blow dryer, curling iron and flat iron. I have to confess I did straighten it about a week ago just to see how long it was getting, but it was such a gigantic pain and it started raining the second I finished that I will not do that again for a looong time!
I’m expecting a baby in the spring and I’m kind of hoping it’s a girl – that way I can show her how to love her curls and teach her that there’s no such thing as good hair!
Thank you Nikki!
