Curly Girls Understand We Must Not Disturb the Curl

Curly hair is a blessing! Although some days, some of us may beg to differ.

Some days our curls look perfectly sculpted and bouncy. Other days it is as if our curls have a mind of their own, resisting to be tamed.

Our hair looks different from one day to next 

Even if you follow the same routine, using the same products and techniques each day, your curls never look the same way twice.

We know to just leave the house with wet hair 

… unless you have a hood dryer or the patience to defuse it without touching or disturbing your curl pattern. We need to be educated on products, not to be left to the weather’s mercy.

When you get to work and your hair is dry, your roots are flat and ends are full 

Quickly, we fluff up the roots and set our curls free from being stuck to our scalp. Now this is what it is all about.

We never ever brush our hair 

If we brushed our hair, it would separate our curl families. We finger comb or use a wide-toothed comb and leave-in conditioner, styling curl creams and mousse have very important purposes for us.

The most important key is once you are done drying, do not disturb the curl pattern from mid shaft to ends

Once dried, we’ll shake out our roots only, setting your hair free from being stuck to the scalp. Now, our hair falls in its own voluminous curly patterns, looking lush and full and – of course – amazing. The last thing you want to do is disturb your natural curl pattern, distorting the authentic and real looks that your locks provide.
