GIRL MEETS CURL

Ever since I’ve cut my hair I’ve had quite a few strangers ask me what I use to style my curls. In case you too are wondering, I did a post about it here a while ago.

But I didn’t always know how to manage my curls.  In fact, through the years I’ve had a love hate relationship with my hair. You know, typical curly girl problems…

About 6 years ago, I chopped my hair into a bob and decided it would be a good idea to blow dry it and iron it everyday. After all, the pin straight look was in and hair was just hair. Right?

Wrong! After a year of blow drying my hair got so fried and damaged that I eventually started losing my curls. I kind of panicked! After months of deep-conditioning, hair treatments and tender love and care I finally had a girl meets curl moment.  The curls slowly began to grow back and I was enthused!

Since then I’ve only blow dried my hair once. Sounds drastic huh? Well it was, but I had finally embraced the fact that I was a curly girl and I loved it!

I may or may not blow dry it soon just to see how it looks. But for now, the only change I need is a fresh new cut!

  1. Your hair looks gorgeous! I love the curls. I cut my hair and went natural a little over 4 years ago and so happy I made the switch.

    Your curls are lovely. Being a curly girl myself I can definitely relate to the love hate relationship part of things. I went through the always straight phase and ended up missing my bouncy little curls. Now i alternate, but always keep my hair hydrated and healthy :)

  3. I can’t imagine taking care of curly hair like yours but it would really be a pity to have it damaged. Your curls are so beautiful and a lot of girls would wish for those!!
