I’m Colleen, and I want to welcome you to my little corner of the world.
I created this blog as a way to tell my story and share my life. My primary focus is to give you everything you need to bring your curls back to life.
I’ve gone from loving, hating, over-processing, and just throwing my curls in a messy bun because I didn’t know what else to do with them.
Curls have a mind of their own and you never know what you’re gonna get.
After four back to back pregnancies (1 miscarriage & 3 births) my hair was in the worst condition it has ever been.
I cut and lightened it to platinum which made it go from bad to worse. I was pulling out handfuls in the shower and there was little to no body left in it.
I felt like straw. It was so terrible! I never thought I would have curls again.
I had my hands full with three small kids and just didn’t have the time to put into researching home treatments and I didn’t have time to go to the salon often.
At that point, for fear of my hair falling out, I decided to start trying to take better care of my hair.
If you feel hopeless on your curly hair journey, sister, you are not alone!
I created this simple easy to follow curly girl cheat sheet to help you bring your curls back to life.
I had a few salon deep treatments that were helping bring back my curls. The curl was slowly but surely coming back.
But I hadn’t committed to avoiding heat and consistently doing treatments at home.
As my kids grew and became more independent, I finally decided to start doing research on how to bring my curls back.
It seemed like all roads led to the curly girl method. Read more here.
As I dug deeper and deeper into how to follow the curly girl method, I was SO excited to get started and convinced it was what my hair needed.
…& the proof is in the pudding <3
