How to create natural frizz free curls.

Updated on March 1, 2015

My experiences with curly hair

My name is Liz since from been around 11 years old I have struggled with my hair, In fact I hated it. Before I turned 11 my hair used to be straight and smooth. once I turned 11 it all changed. All my friends had perfect straight shiny long hair, my hair was always a long frizzy mess, and I was always very envious of my friends. My hair Is very long, curly, tends to be frizzy and was always very knotty. I would always tie my hair back, and would only have my hair down after hours of straightening.

It wasn't until around 20 that I realised actually curly hair could look nice, and not everyone had to have perfectly straight hair, and that it was okay to look different. So I started looking for the best products for my hair, I never really looked after my hair until that point. I used to dye it frequently and even bleached it a couple of times.

I came across a book whilst I was browsing on Amazon, the book was called Curly girl handbook. I read quite a few of the reviews that people wrote, and they highly recommend this book for people with naturally curly hair.

Once the book arrived I was eager to read it, it's a very informative book. It talks a lot about peoples experiences with curls, and their hair disasters that they have experienced throughout the years.One of the best feature of the book that I liked, is that there is a page where you can identify the type of curls that you have, which is very useful when choosing your hair products.

From reading the book I came across a website called British Curies, they are a website especially for people with curly hair. They have their own on-line shop, and forums that help you deal with any hair problems that you might have, and you can also create your on posts on the forum.


How to properly maintain and look after your curly hair.

After a long battle with my curls, and a lot of research I have found the products that I think work best for curly hair. http://www.curlyemporium.co.uk/ this is their website that I mentioned earlier British curlie's, this is their shop. I then discovered a brand called Kinky Curly, its an American brand and it made with all natural ingredients. Its pretty expensive, but thought id give it a try anyway.

I ordered Kinky Curly Knot today, Kinky Curly curling custard I also ordered Curls like us curl cloth I read about this in the curly girl hand book. When the products arrived I was very eager to try them out.

Products that I recommend, that I use myself;

Curls Like Us Curl Cloth - £21.99

Kinky-Curly Curling Custard 8oz - £17.95

Kinky-Curly Knot Today 8oz - £12.95

I buy all my Kinky curly products from The Curly Emporium on British curlie's, but they stock this brand in many other shops and websites.





Product review and my experience

After using these products just once I noticed a massive difference with my hair, the texture was nicer, felt softer, my curls where more defined the products use marshmallow root and they smell amazing.

I would recommend these products for everyone with curly hair, especially if they are having problems managing your hair, the way that I did for years.

I know this may sound a little dramatic, and maybe it is, but these products changed my life. They made me feel good about looking different, they gave me the confidence to no longer have to straighten my hair to feel accepted, and most importantly they made me fall in love with my curls.

I love my curls, and never feel the need to straighten my hair.
