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…)...

CURLYFEATURE – MEET Laura

Hey curlies! My name is Laura, I'm a 27 year old stylist from Portland, OR. The start of my natural hair journey began back in 2011 when I became frustrated with the health of my hair. I had never seen my natural hair texture (I had been getting relaxers since I was 5!) and decided to transition for 10 months and finally big chop in 2012. (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. Being natural for so long has been a real trial and error because I thought that every rule in the natural community was a one size fits all. But the truth is healthy hair comes with a simple regimen and knowing what your hair likes. (more…)...

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…)...

CURLYFEATURE – MEET Zhané

Hey, my name is Zhané I'm from Kansas and I've been natural for about 4 years now. For being 4 years natural my hair isn't at it's full potential due to me not taking good care of it the first two years I was natural. I love being natural but I think the most important thing for me would just be to maintain a routine that works well with me.  (more…)...

CURLYFEATURE – MEET TYLER

Hey Curly Friendsss!! My name is Tyler and I’m from the beautiful ‘Spice Isle’ Grenada! My #1 rule for maintaining your natural hair is; keeping it moisturized! I tend to lightly spritz my hair with water and seal with a light oil when I get up in the morning & I do the same when I’m going to bed. I got my first relaxer when I entered high school. I asked my mother if I could get my hair relaxed and she eagerly agreed considering that she would no longer be doing my hair. (more…)...

CURLYFEATURE – MEET Simone

Hi everyone! My name is Simone and I'm a 28 year old Speech Pathologist from Texas. I've been back and forth between relaxed and natural for about 5 years. I normally (well always) wear weaves! I just never really maintained my natural hair underneath my sew-ins. After a bad experience with a sew-in last April, I decided to take it out and when I did, I found my hair was a tangled mess! My relaxed hair was so tangled in with my natural hair, I literally cried. (more…)...
