I was born with naturally curly hair, like most of us curly girls, I wanted straight hair. I’ve spent the last (mumbles under breath number of years) straightening my hair and causing a ton of damage. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to love who I am and embrace who I am, that includes the curls, and the right products for curly hair. I have a daughter with straight hair who always wants to curl her hair. How can I teach my daughter to love herself if I’m always trying to change who I am? That question was a HUGE wake up call for me. Really the last 10 years, go figure that’s how old she is about to be, have been about learning to love myself, be confident in who I am, and what I can do. That includes the curls.
First, I needed to find the right products for curly hair. There are probably 19 million products on the market for every hair type. I started at a big box store, like most of us do. I got the gel I thought would be best and lathered it on after each wash. Stiff hair that had to be washed each day was all that I’ve ever known of curls. That was until I found my new love, Elastine Propolithera. This hair line is made from honey, beeswax, and royal jelly. I’m terrified of bees! I never thought bees would help me feel confident in who I am!
I have found an entire hair care line that was made just for me. Ok fine, it wasn’t made for me but just go with it! I went from washing my hair daily for curly hair to only a few times a week. I washed my hair before bed, put a little Damage Repair Serum on, plopped my hair, went to sleep and woke up with soft, defined, healthy curls. I had the same curls for days! This picture was 48 hours after showering with only a little hair serum.
My hair has never been healthier. I’ve never loved my hair, today I do. Not the straightened, damaged, full of product hair, but MY hair. I’m thankful for any product that can help me be comfortable in my own skin. I’m embracing who I am, one curl at a time.
