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 to see how it looks after 3 years WHOOP WHOOP.
I was also in the middle of my blonde hair journey and was regularly getting my hair bleached. Too add to the bleach I always wore my hair straight which meant I was straightening my hair daily. Result of this was... straw like yellow hair. Surprise surprise, my hair was now dead, I had killed it.
To get my hair to where it is today I did get the ends of my hair chopped off however, I did keep some length.
I started to deep condition my hair and read the ingredients of the products I used. I gave my hair routine more thought and planned ahead. I also did protective styles, but most importantly I was patient.
I thought curly hair meant frizz, that it looked unprofessional, childish and I hated how much attention which is why I wanted to straighten it and fit in with everyone else. The bigger the hair the more they stare!
But now I love my curly hair and everyone around me does to! It’s a part of me and I love each very curl pattern that can be found in my now blonde mane.
