I have been getting a lot of questions about what I’m doing with my curls because they have been living their best life (yes, even with consistently straightening my hair) over the last couple of years. And I am really proud of that! My hair journey has been a long one, but I finally feel really happy with the health and condition of my hair. It’s usually easy to detangle, it grows quickly and is overall pretty easy to manage, which has not always been the case.
There were two shifts that happened over the last few years that I believe may have contributed to the condition of my curly hair. One, I got serious about drinking my Glowing Green Smoothies 3-4 days/week. Two, I learned I had low-porosity hair and had been taking care of my hair all wrong. So, I put a full stop on co-washing (I had mad buildup) and using coconut oil or heavy oils on my hair. I noticed my hair was finally receiving all of the awesomeness from the products I was using because it was finally squeaky clean. And my curls took off from there! So, here are the current products that are my ride or dies, and a few that have been around for years. It’s not a long list, as I keep it pretty simple, and don’t follow any type of curly girl rules. I just do and use what works for me. read more
