I'm a natural girl with VERY tight/curly locks. I finally straightened my hair out to find all kinds of split ends that you never notice when you are used to wash n go. I made a last min appt at Fantastic Sam's and got Alex as a stylist...OMG he did an AMAZING cut while wearing my hair straight but the true test is always what will it look like when I go back curly. My Shirley Temples look absolutely phenomenal. I have body out of this world curly or straight...I couldn't ask for anything more.
