Curly Haired Diva

Be Fearless. Go Natural.

Hello Beautiful Ones,

You seek CURLS, CURLS, and more CURLS! You have either surpassed the Big Chop Phase or the Transitioning Phase and are ready to fully embrace your beautiful texture. You luv the new length of your natural hair, but need some assistance?

Here are a few things to consider:
  1. Establish a Healthy Hair regimen. Discipline yourself and maintain a weekly routine. Use the K.I.S.S. Method: Section and Detangle, Pre-poo, Cleanse, Deep Condition, Moisturize, and Protect. This will keep hair soft, manageable, and free of knots and tangles. Get in the habit of caring for your hair, because it will:
      1. Control Frizz & Ease Managebility
      2. Soothe & Condition Your Scalp
      3. Deeply Moisturize Your Curls
  2. Train Your Curls. Because of the bends and curves in our hair strand (afro-textured hair), it is easier to train compared to chemically altered hair. Experiment with styles that will define your curl pattern: Two Strand Twists, Bantu-Knots, and the new Curlformers.
  3. Detangle Regularly. Try to finger detangle at least twice a week, depending on length and thickness of your hair to reduce knots and tangles. Detangle in Sections. Limit tangle teasers, wide tooth combs, and Denman brushes to wash days. Start from ends to roots to reduce stress on the hair strand.
  4. Co-washing is great for curlies. Use a lightweight conditioner to clean the hair. This can add intense and much-needed moisture without stripping the hair.

Stay encouraged on this journey!
