Naturally curly hair is a bitch. The best kind of bitch – the bitch that looks gorgeous, but is damn hard work. You know; the one that ends up being worth it. We should all aspire to be like curly hair.

Basically, in my attempts to get to lavender my curls ended up straggly and I figured the best thing for everyone was obviously to cut them.
