Thanks KaiCee, that's one of my favorite soap boxes too. I fought my curly hair throughout the 70's and 80's, then finally figured out the curly hair looked better on me anyway; I'm having to let a bad cut grow out now because the stylist was hell bent to give me a style for straight hair, which I specifically said for her not to do. I'm aware of all the flat irons and stuff they have now, I just don't want to fight that battle anymore! Of course I was asking for it because my hair was waist length, and had only been trimmed for about 12 years. So I went into the salon knowing nothing, except that I'm getting a little too old to look right with hair that long. It's starting to look a little better now; maybe I can find someone who can cut curly hair next time!
