On this gloomy morning, I happened to come across this fashionista with a simple fall put together look. I was impressed at this time of day she looked so cute and trendy! Her look spoke so much to her personality, especially her hair. These days, girls are so eager to straighten their hair and hide their natural curls, however this Fashionista embraced her beautiful curls and rocked them with ease. Don't get me wrong, perfectly flat ironed hair has its moments and purposes, but to rock your own unique texture and hair, will never go out of style. I asked this Fashionista if she ever felt pressured to hide her curls but she stated with confidence that she was completley in love with her hair and would never change it for the world. It was a part of her.
So for you curly girls, like myself, there are many tips to keep your hair healthy, curly and beautiful. Having curly, wild hair is a blessing of course but sometimes on those frizzy days, it can be a total curse. Curly hair can get damaged easily if not taken care of properly so here are a couple of things to remember! Wash your hair 3 times a week and deep condition everytime. Argan and morrocan oil have become all the rage these days, because they keep your hair shiny and enrich it so well. Organix happens to be my favorite, because it's affordable and it literally leaves your hair looking like you're going to be in a Herbal Essences commercial. It's important to comb out your hair after you washed it with a fine tooth and leave-in conditioner so you don't seperate your curl pattern. Although a bit pricey, Bumble and Bumble Leave in Conditioner is amazing and adds that extra shine and richness. Another thing that's important is to always air dry your hair! If you wrap it in a towel or use a blow dryer, you will lose any beautiful curl pattern and your hair will turn into one big frizzy mess! Some girls use a diffuser to take out that extra frizz. Vidal Sassoon makes great affordable diffusers that you can attach to your blow dryer after you condition your hair. Make sure you also get your hair trimmed every eight weeks to keep your hair growing and healthy!
Curly girls, don't be afraid to look up great styling tips as well. Allure has great articles on their website for specific tips for girls with curls! Seventeen also has great tips from girls just like you to make sure your curls always have that perfect bounce. If you do straighten your hair often, please remember to use heat protectant so that your hair won't get too dried out or damaged. It's imperative that you take care of your hair because the more you do, the longer and healthier it will look, making you feel happy and beautiful. Although straight hair is super cute, it's so common and typical! Why not dare to be different and rock your unique and natural hair! Do you know how long women sit at salons or take out time in the morning to get perfectly bouncy curls? Well, newsflash — you were naturally blessed with that! So go out and embrace your curls, and I guarantee that you will turn heads.
