International Curly Day

For a long time I had a hate/hate relationship with my curly hair! Until I was 9 years old my hair was pin straight and then puberty hit and my straight hair became a mass of curls and frizz. The frizz came about because I had no clue how to fix my curly locks. For years I fought with my ringlets and it was usually a losing battle. Then I found a cool website for those blessed with curls- This website has great tips on how to take care of your curly hair. Product recommendations, the best ways to cut and style your curls and how to indentify your curl type and learn how to care for the type of curl you have are all things that I learned on this site. Because of I learned to embrace and love my curls. Instead of feeling cursed I felt blessed!I learned how to "plop", no poo, condish wash and other funky terms the curlies on the forums used for their tricks to perfect their curls. I found out about Lorraine Massey of Devanchan Salon and got her book full of great tips and hair recipes! I even went to a salon in Brooklyn that were curly specialists and got a great cut and color!  I got so many compliments after I started using the tips I had learned from this site! 

My curls throughout the years...
