Lately I've been leaving it natural, seeing if I could get back some of my curl. Ironic you say?!? Now to the good part, it's actually been looking better. Thanks to my best friend and hair stylist Sarah. She recommended Moroccan Mousse and it's been amazing. Perfect curls and no crunch! I shampoo, condition, dry, I DO NOT comb it, and just throw the mousse on. Scrunching up obviously. We all know the SCRUNCH. And I've found my hair comes out best if it air dries. The Moroccan mousse recommends air drying on the bottle. This is definitely a splurge product but it works so well and you don't need that much unless your hair is long.
Olivia inherited my curly hair and I LOVE that. I LOVE her curly hair. She is so beautiful inside and out and so is her hair. I hope she never hates it the way I did. I hope it never makes her feel LESS. Because there were times it made me feel that way. I have found two products that I'm going to rave about for kids with curly hair. Shea Moisture Kids Detangler and curly hair butter. They are both currently $8.49 at Target and can be found in the adult hair care section. Click through pictures for direct shopping links. Olivia's curls are in such great shape. I spray the detangler and use a pick to get knots out. Then add a little of the curl butter and scrunch. Her curls stay moisturized all day and are so soft.
So a couple of weeks ago I'm on Facebook and my lovely friend Becca posts a new profile picture. Her curls! They look so good! She likes to call them her Sarah Jessica Fro! And I can see why! I NEEDED to know how she achieved this look. What did she use? What is her process? Here's the thing about my friend Becca..she's smart, witty, a natural beauty, and an excellent writer. She is truly inspirational. And she's here to guest write and let us in on her curly hair secrets! Don't miss out on her guest post here!
