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…)...

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…)...

CURLYFEATURE – MEET Brittany

Hiiiii Beauties & CURLfriends! My name is Brittany, and some may know me as “BeautywithBJ” on Youtube and Instagram. Let me first start by confessing: while many may have decided to go natural, I was sort of forced to. Forced as in, I didn’t have much of a choice once I experienced a cute protective style gone WRONG and the results were irreversible. [In short: I had Senegalese twists installed. When the stylist installed them she used beeswax AND Spritz in my hair, unbeknownst to me. It was not until I kept them in for about 1.5 months and tried to take them out that I realized my hair had begun to lock and knot in the majority of places around my head].  My only option was to cut it off and start over.

CURLYFEATURE – MEET Bri

Hi I'm Bri, I first started going natural in 2011.I was over spending money on perms and visits to the hair salon. I cut my permed hair into a short style and transitioned out of the short style by using protective styling. As my hair got longer I began using heating tools which damaged my hair. I did my second big chop(my current style) myself at the end of 2015 to get rid of the damage. I love my short natural cut but I plan to start growing it out this year. (more…)...
