Genius is of small use to a woman who does not know how to do her hair.

I went 100% natural in the summer of 2009. I stopped relaxing years before and had no clue how to take care of my hair. Hence the name cluelesscurl. Google, bloggers, and youtube quickly became my BFF. Oh the things I've learned. I was floored to learn all I had to do was look in my kitchen. Still haven't found my holy grail yet. It's a work in progress. At times it can be a love/hate relationship. But, I'm glad I took the necessary steps to having a healthy head of hair. To keep me motivated I look at pictures of other naturals. Natural hair is so versatile and beautiful.
