Yesterday, I met a fellow curly and I told her how I couldn't wait to get to her length (which is similar to the girl pictured's) and she said it took forever and then showed me how long her hair really was, and I was like... okay, another two to four years. I think I'm going to start taking hair vitamins or something.
I have naturally curly hair, which, for the longest time, I hated and actively resisted. It wasn't until this year that I became frustrated with myself for trying so hard to conform. I've been wearing my hair curly, and in doing so, I've been more appreciative of myself and more confident.
