… until age 2, I didn’t have any hair at all.
When it did start to grow, though, it soon became clear that it was going to be a challenge to keep in check — it’s both frizzy and curly (and the curls and general frizziness multiply with the level of humidity they’re exposed to). When I was little, my mom tried the “keep it short” approach …
