Hi! That’s me up there, sitting on my bed on a Sunday, being a bit cringe on Photo Booth and thinking that it’s just the right time to start a blog on a subject that I know so much about – curly hair – and not just any curly hair but those types of curls that are unruly, frizzy, awkward, wild and unapologetic! From this blog expect the following things:
- Products that I recommend and test run for you (so you don’t have to)
- Rants (why is my type of hair deemed unprofessional)
- Tears (Carrie Bradshaw’s hair is NOT real)
- Anything else that pops up in my messy brain
But first, a little about me I guess!
All my life I have hated my hair. Whilst everyone was playing with those little braid-your-hair-gadgets, I was sat with my mum trying to pull a brush through my mane. I really did think that I was bound to a life of GHD’s and umbrellas until one day I looked in the mirror and thought ‘Hey, it’s not so bad, learn to LIKE YOURSELF! ‘. So that’s what i’m doing! A little at a time and hey it’s not easy but you have to start somewhere! So what is a girl to do when for the past 14 years you’ve had a completely different do? Buy a trillion products and find that none of them work, go to a billion different hairdressers who “specialise” in curly hair but straighten it to cut it (logic?), cry a bit in the shower and wonder “is the curl life really for me?” yes, yes it is! It just takes time.
Now fast forward to today, i’m starting to get to grips with the curl life a little (hey it’s not so bad, I promise), not looking so frizzy anymore and feeling a bit more wise! So it’s time to share it and hopefully go on the curl girl journey with the readers.
Welcome to the blog!
