The first surprise to me is that my hair is not just a little bit elliptical as you would expect with hair of African origin - it is elliptical to the extreme. It really does not have much of a round component at all.
While the shape of my hair strands was a surprise, the next part really wasn't. My hair is very kinky including sometimes double kinks .
