Hey Textured Beauty!
It’s Curly Colleen here…..
…and I’m really excited to share something with you that I have been working on for a few weeks.
But first, can we take a quick time travel back to before I went down the curly girl rabbit holel?
……That would bring us back to about 2008.
I was in college and on my own for the first time in my life. It was the first time I started to see people wear their hair curly and it actually looked good.
Prior to that time (think late 90’s early 2000’s) the only people who wore their hair curly were older women with perms and a few people my age with straight bangs.
Let’s just say it wasn’t my favorite look…..
I feel like the late 2000’s was the first time I noticed people my age daring to embrace their natural hair pattern.
So I decided that I wanted to try to wear my hair curly. I knew my hair had so much potential and I was getting really tired of heat tools and hair damage.
I remember going to walmart to buy products and feeling completely overwhelmed about the amount of products on the shelves.
Back then, there was little to no education surrounding curly hair care.
While strolling the isles and becoming increasingly anxious about what to choose, I bumped into a woman standing in front of me that had the most amazing curls!
You know, the long, soft, just enough frizz to add character without being annoying, and plenty of bounce.
Total curly goals….
The infamous question seemed to roll off my lips “what products do you use” I said after complimenting her on hair beauty.
She was so kind and went through a list of drugstore products she used. Then she kindly reassured me that having great curls is so much more than the products you use and that just because the products worked for her didn’t mean it would work for me.
At the time, I honestly didn’t really believe her.
But I purchased a few products she had mentioned and went on my way.
Within one week and a few frustrating, sticky, and messy results, I was back to straightening my hair with the conclusion that embracing my curls wasn’t for me.
Jump back to the present day, thousands of hours testing and experimenting with products, and working with people all around the world who want to embrace their curls/waves….
….I have learned what seems like a lifetime of knowledge about curly hair care.
And some of the most common questions I get are…..
- What products do I use?
- How do I use them?
- How come products that work for every one don’t work for me?
I’ve found that when it comes to choosing and using products, there are 3 classic mistakes people make that completely kill their results and cause their hair to be frizzy.
Which can be REALLY frustrating.
So rather than tell you about all three mistakes and keep you guessing about which one you are making, I actually built a 60 second quiz that will help you identify
→Which mistake you are making when it comes to curly or wavy hair products
→Will give you a custom mistake finder report with an action plan to fix it.
I’ll see you on the other side of fixing your number one product mistake, and having clarity about which products to use <3
