New curly girl

Post by kaylaj » Wed Mar 07, 2018 1:18 pm

My name is Kayla. I am 25, totally blind, and just cut my hair a few weeks back.
I need help figuring out and loving my curls.
I don’t know what my pattern is and don’t know the style it is in.
I need help. I have never really been confident in myself and in my luxe, but it seems for the past week or so it’s gotten even worse. Not just with my hair, everything else about me. I need help.

Hello Kayla,

First let me start by saying you are beautiful :-)! Being that your hair is short, hair care will be easier to manage at this point. You can't get a moisturizing hair gel something aloe based or flax seed is good as well to get a nice curly look. We sell the Curl Elixir in our shop at www.reclaimyourcrown.co, this will help to moisturize and define your hair. If you need something that you can go to the store and get I would recommend something like kinky curly custard or As I Am has a good moisturizing gel.

I ordered the EcoStyler gel through Amazon. I was also thinking about getting a pixie cut, but I don’t know.
I found out I have coily hair. It makes me feel squirmy inside because I know what that means. Nappy, that ugly word.
