From wearing my hair straight since I was 18 years old I’ve blowdried, straightened and wore weaves once I started getting into fitness…
I was raised on hot combs, texturizers, elastic bands you name it. I was determined to have healthy hair first and foremost..
Let’s be honest, I grew up being made fun of for my frizzy, curly red hair and I wasn’t going fall victim to the snide comments once the Chi flat iron came out..
No-one, except my sister, had hair like me growing up so I used straighteners to give myself hair that helped me ‘fit in’ and ‘feel pretty’…
My biggest problem at the moment is finding a curly hair cut that suits my face..
The hardest thing for me, was trying to rock the short hair and be brave and confident in public..
Then at 22 I chopped it all off. I had a straight bob. Lord what was i thinking..
I had it relaxed, and wanted desperately to eliminate the frizz and unruly volume.
I began my curly hair journey in Feb 2017. I decided I wanted to embrace my natural hair. So far I have been on my hair journey for just 1.5 years. Cannot wait
