Two years ago I went from straight hair to curly. Honest to goodness I did not know I had curly hair. Here's how I found out I had some wave. Picture it. 1999. A summer discipleship training program in Florida. I meet a boy named Shane. We stay out past curfew one night hanging out on the beach. The next morning after my shower I get a knock on the door requesting my presence in "the office." So I dutifully go, wet hair and all, to get my reprimand (which was deserved considering I was in leadership that summer, tsk tsk tsk). I go back to my room to find mostly frizzy, very slightly wavy (if you squint your eyes real good) hair.
60% of women have curl and don't even know it. If your hair frizzes in humidity then you have the ability to train your hair to release the wave. It takes 2-3 weeks of so-so, OK I'll be honest, crappy looking hair to get the wave/curl going. You will have a few crispy looking hair days as you get to know your hair products. You'll research on the Internet how to get your hair to look better and you will realize it is all about the cut. Then you'll start getting the itching to go to the big city to let a real, curl cutting expert tackle your hair. You'll choose a big city near family and off you'll go.
We just had a ball on our little road trip.
This is my sis. She has super curly blond hair and is as skinny as a toothpick. Don't hate her though, she's super sweet and crafty and a good mom.
