CURLYFEATURE – MEET Candy

Hey everyone my name is Candy and my hair journey started with a hair mess up. In 2010 I went to Harlem with my friend to get a relaxer she had referred this stylist to me. we both went excited to get our hair laid!! Instead I left the salon with limp stringy hair. Not really sure what I wanted to do I just decided to lay off my hair with relaxer for a while. It was a couple of months after that I decided to cut my shoulder length somewhat healthy hair into a bob.I wasn't ready to cut my hair super short but it did help speed the process along.

CURLYFEATURE – MEET Asia

Hey Curlfriends, I'm Asia and I've been 'returning my hair to its natural state' for about 5 years now. I say 'returning' because I like to keep I mind that this is more than just a 'trend' or a 'movement' of some sort. Embracing and cultivating my hair has been a long and continuous journey for me and although it started off on a rough note, I'm still here! (more…)...

My number one rule for maintaining my natural hair is to ensure my hair remains moisturized. The dryer your hair is the brittle it becomes and you risk breakage and damage to your beautiful, curly, and natural hair. I have used Cantu and Shea Moisture products my entire natural journey. I have just recently dove into using ManeChoice and As I am. And to my surprise, none have stripped my hair of its moisture. (more…)...

CURLYFEATURE – MEET Avamaria

Hey friends! I began my natural hair journey in 2013! I decided to go natural when I was looking back at old pictures of my hair when I was in middle school and couldn't believe how long and curly my hair used to be. I wanted my hair back! In high school, I was obsessed with straightening my hair which caused a lot of heat damage and dryness to my curls and a lot of money wasted on all the Brazilian treatments I did. (more…)...

Hey🏽, I'm Kyler Psami (Sammy), I'm from Jamaica and I've been natural for 7years but my hair is 2 years post my fourth big chop.

CURLYFEATURE – MEET DeANNA

Going natural was one of the greatest decisions of my life! All I could ever remember about my hair as a child was having a relaxer. I decided to give my natural tresses a shot one day when I took out a sew in and handn't had a relaxer in 6 months, and the beautiful natural hair I had growing revealed itself. That was 3 years ago in January, 2014. I transitioned about a year, then I big chopped, and I've been natural ever since. (more…)...
