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. 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 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…)...

CURLYFEATURE – MEET Britt

Hi curlies!  I’m Britt and I’ve been “natural” my whole life.  Every time I got my hair done as a little girl, I was met with threats by my grandmother to NEVER put a relaxer in my hair.  In elementary school, I was the girl bouncing down the hallway making all types of noise with beads at the end of my braids.  Somehow, that made me forget that I was hollering about the hair dryer the night before!  I got my hair pressed for the first time in the sixth grade and that became my regular hair style.  Pressed, curled and flowy hair was my idea of beauty because that’s how most of my favorite celebrities styled their hair.    (more…)...

CURLYFEATURE – MEET Meika

Hi my name is Meika. I started transitioning back to natural in Oct 2010. I made the choice simply because I was over my hair growing to a certain length, and eventually breaking off. I didn’t know what I was doing wrong. I transitioned for two full years slowly cutting out the relaxed hair. I at that point was still straightening my hair every two weeks but it was growing long and healthy. In the midst of transitioning my stylist, and I noticed my hair was actually pretty curly and coily! I had no idea because my lovely mother relaxed my hair at 10; so I never really knew my natural texture. (more…)...
