It has been quite a while since I wrote THIS about saying goodbye to my days of having naturally curly hair. Ever since I started having babies my hair has gotten more and more limp and less and less curly. I tried to get it to keep curling but more often than not I found myself straightening it which I actually really liked but took so much time and seemed to be just killing the curls even more. Years ago I came across a book called Curly Girl that gave some tips and methods for taking care of your curls. I tried it for a while but gave up after a few months. I never did really go full throttle and buy the right products and stuff. I just thought it was hopeless.
Well. I guess at that time I told my friend Erin about it and promptly forgot about it. But in the fall I was hanging out with Erin a bit and she started thanking me for telling her all about it, that I had started a Curly Girl revolution in her neighborhood. Even her hairdresser had gotten in on it and had been certified in the Curly Girl technique. Sheesh - I had no idea it was such a big deal. She gave me some samples of the products and made me re-read the book and guess what. I am a curly girl once more. I am so happy. If you have curly hair at all, read the book and do what she says.
There. There you have my testimony of curly girl.
Actually my sister and my sis-in-law Sheri have both hopped on the band wagon as well, so over the weekend while Sheri was up here we did a lot of talking about hair do's, much to the eye-rolling of our husbands. Actually Troy's very supportive - I think he's very happy to have a wife who doesn't hate her hair anymore.
