Having Curly Hair Can Be a Blessing or a Pain! Or Both.
You may be wondering why having curly hair seems like such a big deal to me.
My hair has been a source of major discomfort and a lot of frustration since I was three years old.
Yes, the picture below is of me. Age 3. Just before my dad cut my hair because it was so hard to control and I hated having it washed or combed or brushed.
It wouldn't be that long again until I was 21. And I wouldn't really learn what to do with it until much, much later.
The picture above is of me, too. Not a great picture, but I took it in my office with my cell phone on July 5, 2018. I washed my hair the day before and it was still very curly the next day. I love my curly hair!
The fact that I only learned how to look after my hair properly when I was in my sixties is something I want to help others avoid. Or if you're already there, please join me. I'm still learning new things!

Today, I love my hair, but when I was growing up, it was so frustating to have to put up with hair that, according to my mother, “had a mind of its own.”
No, I’m not a hair stylist. Just someone who suffered for years because I had no idea what to do with my unruly hair. So I’m offering some thoughts for anyone out there with curly or wavy hair who feels the way I did. I so wish I’d known these things when I was 5 instead
