I love my curls. I didn’t always. I’ve had so many hairstylists butcher my hair and send me out crying and without an apology. I freak out every summer because I slightly turn into Monica from Friends when she goes to the Bahamas. My hair doesn’t fit under baseball caps and I love that. I love that it connects all of my sisters together and there’s no mistaking we are related (all 4 girls). I love that it sets me apart, even though I have been told hundreds of times to straighten it to look more “professional” I refuse. I have curly hair and I don’t care. It’s who I am. My only wish? I wish I had my mothers natural, vibrant red hair! I swoon over fiery red curls!
I get a lot of comments, in real life and in the blogging world, about my hair. What I do to take care of it, who cuts it and I just decided to make this into a post. You can view products I use on this page.
Washing- I wash at the most once a week. Curly hair is naturally dryer so it needs to build up its natural oils. I love Palmer’s coconut deep conditioner every once in a while as well. It’s cheap and gives you an amazing shine and condition.
Styling- Your hair is going to look amazing for 10 minutes and then fall. It’s just reality. Accept that and then learn how it falls and what sides go flatter. This kind of information is what I tell my stylish when getting a haircut. The wind will make your hair never look right and everyone loves to watch curls fly in your face. These are things that you cannot change. You move on and then you follow my tips here.
Cut- Learn when your curls are at their prime. I have my best curls when medium length. How did I find that out? Mistakes. I thought that straight hair cuts would totally work for curly hair. They don’t. Nothing about straight hair relates to yours. Straight hair people think you guys basically have the same hair. IT’S NOT THE SAME!
I hope this helps all of you who are struggling!
