Most people want what they do not have and that was certainly the case for me. I’ve had curly hair all my life but all I ever wanted was for it to be straight. Therefore, I tortured my curls for years with blow dryers and straightning irons. A couple of years ago I was working full time and unconsciously made the decision to stop pretending I had something I didn’t- straight hair. Once I started wearing my natural curls I slowly started to see the plus side of embracing the look. My morning routine was drastically reduced, my hair was much healthier, and I got tons of compliments. It may have taken me about 12 years but I finally embraced my crazy, curly, knoted hair.
