I remember going to camp in 6th grade and lining up for the preteen ritual known as the braid train. Your hair is so soft!! I was born with a full head of hair, legendary in my family for its sheer volume. And around 7th grade, my hair texture started to deviate from dense and pin-straight to dense and frizzy. Over the next few years, my hair grew into something totally new and unfamiliar.
