My Secret To Long Hair

Of all the questions I get asked about, over half of them are about my hair. I have a very long relationship with these locks, some of it hate, some of it love. I grew up in a time where short, straight hair was it. I had very thick, long hair that was wavy (with a fair side of frizz).
