-------


With Chris Rock and Tyra Banks bringing the issue of “natural hair” to both the big and small screens, curly girls of all ages and races are grappling more than ever with the issue of whether or not to go straight.

All you have to do is show the most gumption in regrowth between now and March 31 by snipping off your straight ends in small steps or in one fell swoop and uploading pictures of the transformation. Every month, four people will be selected to win free product prescriptions to assist in the process. Click here for more information, and may the best frizzy mop win.
