Time to confess, my hair had not been cut in over eight months, which means it was only two months’ overdue right? How often do you cut your hair? For the last couple of years whenever I go for a haircut my intention is for more than a little trim. This time I did something I have never done before, a three-inch haircut with a natural hairstyling. Any other time I would have my hairdresser blow dry and straighten or even curl my naturally curly hair. As I am trying to embrace more of my natural roots I wanted to see what magic my hairdresser could do. For some reason she always amazes me with how well and fast she styles my hair.
Every time I show her a photograph of what I wish to look like, this time it was Tori Kelly. Yes, I realize my hair is not the same exact curl type as her. Throughout experimenting with various curl products I thought it would be nearly impossible to find something to work for my unbelievably thick curly hair. Diva Curl was a brand I had tried in the past however, I shut them down as a brand altogether after the first couple I tried did not work for me. However, it was the Diva Curl ultra-defining gel that turned out to be MY product along with their new shine product.
In spite of finding something that works for my curly locks my curly hair journey is not over by far as there are brushes, shampoos and various products to experiment with. I never want to have a huge haul of products to create a naturally curly hair routine so hopefully I don’t end up adding too many more products.
Watch the video below to see what my hair looked like right before and after the appointment.
