You may be wondering why having curly hair seems like such a big deal to me. But you need to understand that 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 this long again until I was 21. And I wouldn't really learn what to do with it until much, much later.
The picture on the left is of me, too. Not a great picture, but I took it in my office today with my cell phone - July 5, 2018. I washed my hair yesterday and it is still very curly today. And 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!
