Hi, I’m Eden, a fellow curly learning how caring for my hair has built so much confidence.
I didn’t have an easy start. At school, I felt my wild and unpredictable curls didn’t quite “fit in” – too frizzy one day and pom-pom the next. Even as a low-maintenance un-girly girl, I did want some predictability when it came to my curls.
So, I embraced my subtle curls and learnt about my hair type and how to style it.
I learned “refreshing” is key for all curlies because:
It reduces the crazy hair days, bad hair mornings and brings some control and predictability into my hair
It makes my curls last longer between full-wash days
It maintains my clumps (recipe for great curls)
Seeing my confidence grow in my hair (pun intended!), I can honestly say I have felt more in control and happier. I want you to have the same feeling.
Everyone’s routine will look different but here’s mine to get you started:
Hands wet, start at the roots of a curl clump.
With hands flat together in prayer position, sandwich your curls, gently pulling downwards to tips. *
Then, scrunch hair back to the roots at 90 degrees.
