Curlty Hair Rocks! - Loving Your Curly Hair

I Love My Curly Hair

  I decided to write this post because I can personally relate to this topic and I love to keep the conversation going. As a matter of fact studies show that many women don't like their curly hair and even more little girls think their curly hair isn't pretty. Watching TV a few months ago I saw a segment on beautiful little girls that wished their hair was straight and not curly. It brought back memories because I too felt that same exact way years ago. It really did bother me a bit to see young beautiful girls express how they disliked their curly hair because they thought it wasn't pretty & straight. At the same time I also felt happy to see that those talks I've been having with my daughter about her hair will pay off. As a mother of a beautiful Curly hair baby girl we do talk about her hair mainly because she has brought it up and so that lets me know that she is curious about her hair. Although she is only 3 1/2 years old I make sure to listen and teach her to embrace her uniqueness. I also make sure to bring it up on my own as well, like when we are watching any princess movies (which she loves) I talk about how the princess hair is beautiful just like her curly hair is beautiful. I also make sure to embrace my hair to her so she can see that we both have curly beautiful hair to be proud of. It makes me extremely happy every time I hear her say how much she loves her curly hair! I didn't start fully embracing my curly hair till I was a teenager before then it was kind of like sometimes I loved it sometimes I hated it not because it was ugly but because it was different. As a teenager I realized how lucky I was to have such full beautiful long curly hair, that I had the best of both worlds because I was able to straighten my hair and also wear it naturally curly. Surprisingly enough I know a lot of women with straight hair that struggle to get curls. Growing up society does dictate what is beautiful and what I saw was mainly long straight hair as beautiful and polished but now more then ever it is important to teach ourselves as well as our young ones the beauty and uniqueness in curly hair. If you have curly natural hair love it and embrace it, it's beautiful. If you have naturally straight or wavy hair don't forget to love your hair as well it's what makes you unique.

A lot of people don't understand how to take care of their curls so I would like to share a few products that work for me and my daughter, as well as some tips that may be helpful.

  • Curly hair can be tricky mostly because it comes in different textures and has a life of its own. 

  • First things first curly hair gets tangled very often so there are two things that help with that and that is patience and a wide comb. When that doesn't work you can try wetting your hair and adding a little bit of conditioner to your hair. Let it stand for like 2 minutes then proceed again to comb with the wide comb in sections. Combing your curly hair often will keep it from becoming extremely tangled.

  • When using products it really depends on the texture of your hair and it may take a few products before you find the perfect match for your hair.

Growing up I did not know what else to use other then gel or mouse, and although I wore my hair curly mostly in the summer months that's what I would use, now I know better then to use gel or mouse those products harm your hair and sometimes make it hard and the curls don't look as natural.

  • I like to use products that don't over power my hair and keep my hair as natural as possible.

  • When looking for products for your hair you wanna look for something that's gonna cater to your curls.

I like to use leave in conditioners they make my curls prettier and give it a healthy shine while keeping my curls light and natural.

My daughter has mixed hair and the texture although different from mines it's very similar to mines as well and so I use the same products I use on my hair for her.

  Three of my favorite products are Paul Mitchell original conditioner leave in moisturizer. John Frieda Frizz Ease smooth start conditioner. La Plancha Deep Heat treatment. What these products all have in common is that they cater to the needs of curly hair like dryness, frizz, heat from irons and blow dryers that can all effcect and even damage curly hair and so when we style and embrace our hair we want to make sure to keep it healthy and vibrant! Something I found to love as well is "Curly kids mixed hair" hair care for my little girl it's perfect because it smells so so good and it really does condition her curls. Let's embrace our curls and love them forever and if you have a daughter or know a little girl with curly hair don't forget to express how beautiful her hair is. Keep the conversation going as we promote self love and curly hair girls rock!!!!
