  1. Love this! Im 66 yrs. Young,hated my curls as a teen in the 60″s 😨embraced them at age 60.
    One more curly struggle,they tangle right back up as soon as you untangle!

  2. There’s nothing quite like waking up to a group of hair spiked straight out in some random direction. And no matter how much you comb/brush it, there’s still a side of your head that looks larger.

  3. Please check out my YouTube channel dealing with curly hair! It’s thick and unruly but with the right products can be gorgeous. I finally have embraced my curls. I review all different products for curls. NYCurl401 on YouTube and instagram.

  4. My hair never looks the same way twice. One day a product will work and the next time its frizz city, soft one day and dry and brittle the next. I have to curl it to make it smootj
