Dear Nikki,

I love your blog and I don’t think I could have transitioned to natural without it. You have really created a beautiful community! As you know, events are changing rapidly in the Middle-East and I have been following them and came across this “demonstration” of curly-haired Iranians! A curly-hair community in Iran, who knew?

Iran has government mandated haircuts!

And you thought the side-eye your coworker gave you was bad!
