Choose to be patient and know you are participating in an experience that will offer life long memories. Combing hair is one of, if not the most, intimate and personal experiences between two people, regardless of the relationship. Managing and styling “kinky” hair can be a laborious and unpleasant process or and it can be fun, if you choose to be patient.
