Taking a break from the travelogue to tell you some recent news:
My hair is turning curly.
All of my life my hair has been poker straight. Like so straight that even with an 80s spiral perm it was just barely wavy. But just in the last month I’ve been noticing some slight curls at the ends of my hair. And on this trip I’ve had some soft ringlet curls around my face when I put up my ponytail (which, in fact is full of curls).
I don’t know what would cause formerly straight hair to change its mind and become curly. I haven’t added any chemicals to my hair and the effect doesn’t seem altered by changing shampoos or other hair products.
But I’m not complaining. No way. All my life I have coveted those with natural curls.
Lucky me :)
