Being open and willing to educate yourself is the ultimate way to open many doors and different ways to be successful. These days, you don't even have to leave the comfort of your own home to learn almost anything! It's all at the tip of your fingers...literally!

So let’s start by training and reprogramming your mind to accept the journey and process. This will ultimately become a life change, which will not happen overnight. Finding “yourself” in a sense, can create an endless amount of opportunity and growth in your life! Great results will take an abundance of time and patience, but ultimately amazing results are for sure to follow! 

This is an all in one place to learn everything about your curls, so take advantage. There is tons of information and things to understand, so take your time and once you know it….you know it and no one can take that away from you!

Whether your goal is to create more hydration, develop stronger hair, have less frizz, better retention, more shine, length, or the most desired…..defined curls, it can all be achieved by going and staying natural! 

Every curly has a dream look for the “perfect curls” but when your hair is damaged and dry, it can feel like “perfect” is impossible. So the question is, how do you go from the current state of hair that you have to having the curls you’ve always dreamt of? Stay with us to find out how because we have the techniques and the mind blowing secrets to creating curls you didn't even know was possible! 

Patience is key! Even with the best products in the world, transitioning will take time. You have to give your curls a chance! Especially if there is/was heat and/or chemical damage. Once there is damage done to your natural hair, the effects cannot be reversed, but getting a head start with a healthier hair regimen will set you up for the best results when new hair comes in. Also, providing damaged hair with deep conditioning treatments can definitely be beneficial to your damaged curls and temporarily bring them to a healthier state. Just remember, your curls need time to heal to come back to life. You may not see results in two months, or six and that's ok! Consistency is key and great results take time. As you continue your brand new regimen and curl journey, your curls will become healthier, and more defined overtime. Don't give up curl friend! You got this!  

Stay consistent! When you’ve spent your whole curly life using the wrong techniques and products, adjusting into a new curly hair regimen will take longer than expected. Fixing years and/or decades of damaged hair takes time and doesn't happen with one wash and go or treatment. 

It’s all about curls here! Curls are moisture and porosity based. No matter your race, gender, religion, beliefs, or backgrounds, if you have curls, this is for you! We are here to help you love and understand your beautiful tresses. Curls is our religion! 

Saying no to straightening everyday, one day at a time is key!

Stop all heat processing, hair coloring, etc. immediately! Heat and chemical damage will keep you from getting your desired look of healthy curls. You can do things to temporarily bring them back to life like extra moisturizing treatments and special color shampoo, but once curls are damaged, the effects cannot be reversed.

Take pictures throughout your journey to see how far you’ve come. Overtime, results will happen and pictures are the reminder that progress is being made. Be proud of your accomplishments and celebrate the small victories.

Your everyday hair maintenance, along with your climate/environmental factors will play a huge role in the porosity and pattern of your curls, like how often you shampoo your hair, if you have chemicals like dye or bleach, use heat styling, and/or excessive mechanical manipulation. These are only some of the factors that will play a major role in understanding your hair’s porosity and texture. It’s imperative to know what state your hair is currently in and how to manage it from that point. 

Since porosity plays a major role when it comes to curls, it’s time to truly get to know them, down to the individual strand. Your hair’s porosity is the true way to find out what your hair loves and hates. It’s how you determine “this product? or that product?” as well as “this technique? or that technique?” It takes the confusion out and genuinely gives you an understanding as to what will work for your hair! Because what works for one curl friend, may not work for another. Once you have an understanding about your curls and the basic technique to create and preserve them, you can make almost any and every product work for you! It’s just about persistence and staying consistent! Everyone's hair is different, so getting to know your curls first is KEY! 

We know this may get overwhelming and exciting all at the same time, we totally get it! There’s lots of new information to read, digest and understand, but the beauty of it all is that this information and guidance is here to stay curlfriend!
