This is my niece, Hillary. At age 9, she is tall and beautiful just like her momma. She also has naturally curly hair—very, very curly hair. After a few days of swimming and playing outside, it became very tangled. So, during a visit to our house, my husband (the big softy that he is) decided to take the girls to the salon to get their hair done while I was away at a conference. After a couple of hours of brushing, conditioning and blow drying it was finally done and completely straight for the first time.
