Curl Power: The Natural Order

May 17 2016



As the summer heat and humidity set in, salons are filled with the echoes of the same request.

Women looking to tame their frizz, waves, curls and just about anything else that disrupts the image of perfectly straight and smooth hair.

But we are fighting back. Instead of trying to eliminate the things that give our hair character, we want to celebrate them and we aren’t the only ones.

This article in the New York Times thoughtfully dismantles the negative stigmas that have been a part of the curly-hair culture.

Celebrate every curl, every twist, every out-of-place strand that makes our look unique and personal. This video from Dove will show you just how powerful loving your curls can be.

Too many women grow to hate their hair for not looking or behaving the way that they’re told it should, and enough is enough.

Natural hair should be embraced, not tamed and straightened into oblivion so join us in celebrating your natural hair and enjoy some tips on how to style natural and curly hair when it doesn’t want to cooperate.

  1. Don’t Overload on Product

When we aren’t seeing the results that we want with our hair, it’s easy to think that the solution is to use more and more of the product that isn’t working. In reality, that creates more problems than it does solutions. If you’re struggling with frizz, it’s likely because something is drying out your scalp and the last thing that you want to do is lather on more!

  1.  Do Look for Moisturizing Products

For natural hair, or even curly hair a huge challenge is battling that dryness and breakage (especially if you’re starting from the beginning after having a relaxer). Don’t fret, there are many products designed for naturally curly, and ethnic hair that work to make the growth process easier.

  1. Be Patient

If you’re growing out your natural curls, be prepared for it to take some time. The process is different for everyone and it is based on a variety of factors. For instance, your diet, the pH of your skin, the coarse or fineness of your actual hair, can and do affect the way and rate at which your hair grows. Speak with a stylist about how to best approach your style desires and which products will likely provide the best results. Call the location nearest you to schedule an appointment today.  

  1. Most Importantly… BE CONFIDENT

Know that whether your hair is curly, straight, natural, or treated; it is perfect just how it is. The way that you choose to style it should be determined by what makes you feel the happiest and most confident. If you have natural curls and feel better wearing straight hair, then you should!
