My name is Stephanie and I’m a 21-year-old beauty, life and style blogger. I started my natural hair journey in June 2013. I wanted a fresh start because my hair had been through so many relaxers, head damage and color damage. So, with a pair of clippers (and help from my brother) I shaved my head completely. This was a pivotal moment in my life. This transition was hard and more mentally challenging than anything. However, going natural was the best decision I’ve made by far. I’ve learned to love myself, my hair and my skin. I now have more confidence and appreciation for what was given to me to work with!

My #1 rule for maintaining my curls is hydration!  I have low porosity hair, so making sure that it’s properly moisturized is the key to keeping my curls from being damaged. I also prefer to detangle with my fingers to prevent further breakage and tangles. I love to use is the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay in my hair. It’s a great alternative to shampoo and helps my curls keep their pattern. It’s also amazing for your skin too! After washing my hair, I use a cotton t-shirt to dry it and only style on damp hair! Styling on damp hair helps styling last so much longer! My favorite styling combinations are Cantu Curling Cream and Eco Styler Gel. I hope my experience and tips inspire or help other girls going natural!

Love,

Stephanie
