NaturallyCurly: Please introduce yourself!
Jennifer Stewart: My name is Jennifer and I’m from the Bronx. I’m a junior at Boston College studying Human Development and English.
NC: How and when did you start embracing your curls?
JS: My hair has always been slightly wavy, but it wasn’t truly curly until I got to middle school. I was so confused by the curls — I’m the only one in my family with curly hair — so I stuck my hair in a ponytail everyday. I didn’t know what else to do! It wasn’t until high school that I began to embrace my curls.
NC: So from start to finish, on a curly day, what’s your process?
JS: Sleeping on my curls makes them flat and less defined , so I always shower in the morning. I brush my hair right when I get out of the shower — it’s the only time that I brush my hair. Then I towel dry my hair, spray it with a thickening spray and let it air dry. If I’m crunched for time, I’ll partially dry my hair with a diffuser so that I don’t go out with dripping wet hair.
