From the Interview Magazine piece with the curl hair Holy Grail.
When researching Lorde, the new 16 year old pop sensation, I couldn’t help but love that she wears her hair natural and curly. Thank God, finally curls are getting some notice. I posted about it here because looking at her curls you can tell they (a) aren’t brushed and (b) are not “fresh” curls. If any of you reading this have natural curls like me, you understand.
In my research I also found what products she used in this photo shoot – the fucking Holy Grail because us natural curly ladies are always searching for that perfect product.
In the Interview photo shoot they share she uses:
BUMBLE AND BUMBLE, INCLUDING CURL CONSCIOUS SMOOTHING SHAMPOO.
Now on my list of things to buy, you can also check out the website of Bumble & Bumble — Curl Conscious. So many amazing [and expensive] products!
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!
That’s me! Rocking my natural curls.
