Blog| One Month of Natural Hair

Processed with MOLDIV

I’ve talked before about how my hair is naturally curly. My mom has really tight curls and my sister, at most, has slight waves. I landed more on my mom’s side with half-wavy curls and coils. I’ve never been able to figure out how to deal with them and of course, coloring and bleaching my hair doesn’t help.

But I want to try. I figured that straightening and hot ironing my hair every day isn’t exactly the best for it and if I want to move to Seattle I’m going to have to learn to deal with it. There will be no escape from moisture there.

So I’m going to keep my hair naturally curly for a whole month.

Right now it’s in the extreme frizz phase and I hate it. It doesn’t look good and I can’t shower in the evening like I normally do or else I’ll look like medusa in the morning. My morning routine takes 30 minutes in the morning and I like it that way. Now it’s going to take longer.

I think that’s a big reason why I straighten it. My curly hair just never looked tidy and put together. I always looked like I was crazy. I think there are ways I can make it look better but I’m going to need to get some things. Like mousse and probably a hair diffuser. Who knows.

No, seriously, who knows? I need help.

I’ll keep everyone updated through my hair journey and hopefully at the end of the month, I’ll have learned to love my curls.  Hopefully.

Do you have curly hair? How do you manage it? Let me know below!

  1. Not an expert, but I’ve only really embraced my curl in the last couple years, and this is what helps me:
    First, invest in a good shampoo and conditioner for curly hair. I like Herbal Essences or Tresume for my hair. Second, figure out how often you need to wash your hair to keep the right moisture level (every 2 days is my ideal, 4 days is the longest I can go). Third, dry your hair with a clean t shirt rather than a towel, it’s easier on curls. Consider showering earlier in the evening and wrapping your hair to dry it; maybe before dinner take a quick shower? Or, braid your hair before going to sleep to play up the curl even more. Keeps your morning routine intact except for occasional days. For anti frizz, i like the Garnier formula gel.
    Anyway, this is what works for me!
