I am a curly haired girl. I battle with this often and envy my straight haired friends. Then every so often, I am reminded of how beautiful curly hair is and the flexible [and a bit wild] personality required to rock the curls. The person to remind me of the wild nature of curls is the new alternative/pop sensation Lorde. She made me fall in love with my curls again. I just downloaded her album and I love the beats, lyrics, and her voice.
Ok, back to the topic of curly hair. I have been styling my hair curly for my whole life and I have a few routines that work. One of them is to NEVER brush your hair outside of the shower. To explain:
Only brush your curly hair when your hair is wet, with conditioner in, while in the shower.
When you get out of the shower place your hair in a towel and don’t mess with your curls again. Don’t separate them, don’t brush them, don’t touch them too much. Let them do their thing! This is where the flexibility comes into play, and you must let your hair be wild – like you. When they dry you can sweep them to the side like Lorde. Here is proof that it works!
For your listening pleasure – also some curl eye candy.
