NATURALFEATURE – Rickki

Hi there! My name is Rickki. I was born and raised in Louisiana! My #1 rule for maintaining my hair is ACCEPTANCE. I know it may seem like a very strange “rule”, but I consider it an important part of the process. I have to accept that on some days my hair is not going to cooperate and will require a little more patience. I have to accept that I can’t be lazy because my dry hair NEEDS to be deep conditioned weekly. I’ve learned to accept that every kink, coil, and curl on my head has a mind of its own. I accept my hair for everything it is, and everything it is not. Acceptance is a huge part of this journey, and often the hardest. (more…)...

CURLYFEATURE – MEET Stephanie

Hi Beauties! My name is Stephanie! I was born and raised in NYC and my parents are from the Dominican Republic. I’ve always had natural curls, however, growing up in my culture it was all about rocking straight hair. I remember getting a relaxer at the age of 10 because my hair was “so hard to manage”. For a really long time, I thought this was normal and that my hair had to ALWAYS be straight. (more…)...

Making the decision to go natural was huge and I knew it would take a lot of commitment.

CURLYFEATURE – MEET Chloe

Hey Friends! My name is Chloe and I’m loving my natural hair. My last relaxer was on October 26, 2009 and two weeks later I decided to big chop, and big chop I did. I went to a barber and asked for the “Amber Rose.” It felt amazing, and a bit cold, but still wonderful. I loved my short hair. I threw out my shower cap, walked slowly in the rain, and went to the pool at will. I received many critics including my family, friends, and strangers. “Chloe, you look like boy!” “Are you going through something?” “Maybe you should wear some earrings?!” Despite my efforts to ignore the negative sentiments about my new hair; it really hurt my feelings.

CURLYFEATURE – MEET Shay

Curl friends, I'm Shay or Dollaz, which ever you'd like to call me. I've been natural my entire life. I have ran into some break downs where I've went to beauty salons and the women put a relaxer in my deep conditioner. The first time happened when I was around 7 and the second time happened when I was around 19. When I was 19, I was devastated because I'm known for my fro. (more…)...
