I asked her if she liked how her curls looked. She said she didn't at first but after experimenting with her hair, she now wears her natural curls on a daily basis.
This got me thinking. Why is it when we go to a formal event, our immediate thought is to straighten our hair? That day, I wore my hair in a short Afrokinky style using unrefined shea butter to style it.
No matter your curl pattern, remember that curls are beautiful. Excessive use of heat on curls can lead to long term damage. Nourish, hydrate and love your curls.
