- Your relationship with the loops? Do you like each other? It’s complicated? Has it always been simple? Tell us!
Today I love my curls. I’ve always loved them to tell the truth, but the “manage” has long been a chore…
First of all, I have more often had frizzy hair than smoothed.
I made my first straightening at 15, just because I was tired of always having dry hair, I did not know how to comb them and I was braiding all the time. But this experience was so horrible, that I no longer wanted, nor dared to do it again until I was 25 years old. At that age, the straightening was motivated by everyone who encouraged me to have a “somewhat more professional” aspect, because the kinky was “not capped”. I had yielded, reluctantly, but honestly, I did not manage well my loops, I did not know how, and this solution seemed “easy”!
I held up like this until my 32 years old: during a “homemade” straightening, I let the product lay too long, and I had a good part of my hair broken at the root. The nightmare. The Wake up call for me. From there, I promised myself I would never apply harmful products to my hair again. I completely stopped and I came back to the full natural, and I hope well stayed until the end!
- What does your routine today consist of? (Explanation of gestures, choice of products)
After understanding what my curls needed, I learned to take care of my hair easily and quickly. Two key aspects of my routine.
Every morning it is a little fogger to moisten them lightly, and according to their needs, I pass a moisturizing treatment or then a more nourishing care. My curls are free, bouncy and airy, and super soft!
In the evening, in principle, I will settle for some vanilla and scarf to reassure to keep the loops. So if I took the time to feed them before, the next day I do no care, I just unpack and let my hair express itself.
I wash them once a week in principle: I wet them a little, I unravel, separates them into four parts. I wash them with a very soft shampoo, keeping the parts, and I rinse. When they are still well wet, but without stream either, I apply a nourishing care to allow the product to penetrate the hair fiber well and give THE PEP to my loops. I’ll let it dry naturellement…et here;)
