I have naturally curly hair.

It's big, fluffy, wild, kinky, curly, crazy hair. It's wavy in some places, tightly coiled in others, and there's still that chunk of bangs in the front that's nearly straight as a board from years of flat ironing. But those bangs are getting the idea and falling in line. Six months after I started this transition and I can measure a good four inches of fluffy new growth clouding above my forehead.

It's awesome.

I love my hair more than I ever have before. And I am not a woman with major hair issues. The women in my family all have strong hair, a genetic gift from my Grandmother. Our hair grows well, it grows even better when we leave it alone. But like many black women we did a variety of things to our hair that weren't always for the best. A straight press was standard issue. I am intimately familiar with the peculiar scent of a heated pressing comb. That distinct combination of heated iron, oil, and burning hair.
