New year, new hair, right? While the natural curls I’ve been rocking aren’t “new”, I have decided to stop straightening them.
I was ready to switch up my hair and thought about maybe cutting it, but during the holidays, I had a chance to watch a ton of YouTube videos about natural curly hair and their routines. The curls varied in size, length and texture, but I was in awe of how gorgeous they all were. So I’ve committed to at least 3 months of not straightening my hair. I honestly don’t plan on going back to continuously wearing straight hair, but I figure I need to commit to at least 3 months to see if I can live with it and really love it.
I’ll be sharing my progress along the way, but the one piece of advice I can pass on is do your research and educate yourself on how the right products to use, how to style it, how to reverse heat damage, etc. Here are some of the sites I’ve turned to for my journey:
