curly hair don't care.

 Recently I decided that I am too harsh on my hair. I have naturally curly hair and for a long time I was using a blow dryer and flat iron on it almost everyday. Finally I decided enough was enough, it was time to get back to my natural texture and be okay with it. Here's the thing about my hair, it's really curly, like crazy and unruly curly. So choosing the right products is a must. Up until about a month ago I had been trying out a few different curl creams only to be disappointed each time. Then one day I stumbled upon  "Not Your Mother's Kinky Curl Cream".

You guys this stuff has changed my life. Seriously. It gives my curls just enough definition and shine without weighing them down. Plus it smells amazing and you can find it at Walmart for under $5, doesn't get better than that.

First up in my curly hair routine: Shampoo and Conditioner. Now I just use the Tresemme Curl Hydration line and I have liked it fine so far. I have also heard rave reviews about Wen, but have yet to try it out. When I am putting conditioner in my hair I make sure to run my fingers through my hair thoroughly because I don't brush my hair again after that.

Once out of the shower I rub a dime size amount of Organix Moroccan Argan Oil on my hair from root to tip. I love this stuff, it's lightweight, smells good and doesn't leave my hands feeling greasy. I have noticed a huge difference in my hair since using it too.

Next I let my hair part naturally in the center and rub a quarter size amount of the NYM curl cream through my hair, scrunching as I go. Then I just let it air dry. Once it's dry I take a curling wand and touch-up a few of the pieces around my face and any other that didn't curl enough.

That's it easy peasy. Here's to embracing your natural hair.

That is your natural curl?! Sheesh, you Banks girls sure got some good genes ;) I havent done my hair curly in a long time because it always either looks frizzy or crunchy. Ill have to try that kind! If not on me, then maybe Sophie, since she was blessed with my crazy hair :)
