The decision to go curly was a difficult one. I am a girl who loves her hats, but I also love my curls the bigger the better, so I had to make the sacrifice. The hair won.
A year ago my curls would have never won, yet with knowledge of myself and a greater acceptance of what is, I have realized what an awesome gift it is to have my curls. At one time I hated them because I felt like a side show, people constantly asking questions like… “How does you hair do that” or every time I wash it “Did you cut your hair?” or “can I touch it?” Of course my very favorite always the shock after they tough it and say “it’s so soft.” Yet with age comes wisdom as does patience, so coupling that with my sunshiny attitude and I realized my hair isn’t something most people encounter in their everyday life so for whatever reason this person felt comfortable enough with me to entertain their natural curiosity.
With the growing movement of #NaturalHair grew the access to products that celebrate the curl rather than straighten it. Products like Mixed Chicks, Deva Curl, Curls, Shea Moisture, Carols Daughter etc brands getting so much love for their dedication to the curly girl movement.
I wanted to give some shout outs to some of the curly girls who inspire my fro to grow to epic proportions.
Also was considering doing a natural hair tutorial including some of my favorite products too!!! We shall see.
