It seems as though curls always get the short end of the stick. There are Blow Dry bars all across the city and places that always offer walk in Blow-outs...but have you ever heard of a Curl Bar? No you have not, because that is not a thing...but it should be! If you are naturally curly like I am and style your hair straight most of the time then this article is exactly about you.
Growing up, my mother had pin straight hair and I always dreamed that I could have hair like hers because that was how everyone in the movies or shows that I watched looked. However my mother would always go and get a perm which confused me. Why was she trying to achieve that which I wished that I didn't have.
The real reason why I 'hated' my curly hair in the past was that it was work...work, work, work, work, work work...and lets keep it real. My hair required constant moisture and brushes weren't a tool that I ever reached for. In my older years I am now becoming more comfortable with myself and embracing my natural curls. I think that it took me this long because I couldn't figure out what worked with my hair. It took years of searching and trial and error but I found the trick that works for me and you should give it a try.
When your hair is still wet, you should use a curl cream like the BrioGeo Curl Charisma Rice Amino + Avocado Leave-In Conditioning Creme : This lightweight, moisture-rich finishing crème is fortified with frizz-deterring rice amino acids, avocado oil, and nourishing quinoa extract to nurture and enhance the texture of your curls.and lather that evenly throughout the hair to shape the curls. To keep them in proper form and frizz free, use a very light hold gel and spread evenly throughout the hair as well. If you have the time, you can use a blowdryer on the cold setting or simply let it air dry and then finger comb and scrunch the curls as desired. The end result will make you glad you have those curls.
