"Since going natural, I have been so much more confident and I feel liberated!"
Sherry: Hi everyone! My name is Sherry and I am a twenty-something living in sunny Southern California.
NC: How and when did you start embracing your curls?
Sherry: I didn’t realize that I had curly hair until I was twenty-two. I went to a Nickelback concert and wanted to mousse my hair…I don’t know why but I did. Naturally, my hair took its own course and it became curly and defined. A friend complimented me and asked if I had permed my hair. I didn’t really know what a perm was, so I googled it and the light switch went on…I have curly hair! I finally figured out why my hair was the way it was. I understood why it became frizzy and puffy when I brushed it out. Though I knew I had curly hair I was too lazy and didn’t know how to take care of it. I didn’t embrace it until two years later. I had given myself a haircut, but messed it up so badly that I had to get it professionally cut. In order to fix my hair, the stylist had to cut my hair super short, to the point where I had to say bye-bye to my scrunchy. I was forced to educate myself on how to maintain curly hair and on the different types of hair products. Ever since then I’ve been rocking my naturally curly hair.
NC: What's your current routine?
Sherry: Contrary to popular belief, curly hair is super easy to maintain and it doesn’t even take that long to style, compared to straightening my hair! I’m a low maintenance girl so I keep it really simple. I’m currently trying out the DevaCurl collection and I love it.
NC: So from start to finish, on a curly day, what's your process?
Sherry: I start off with DevaCurl No-Poo and then use DevaCurl One Condition. After rinsing the conditioner out, I finger comb my hair and then use a cotton t-shirt to pat the excess water out of my hair. Then I use a quarter-size dollop of the DevaCurl One Condition and scrunch it into my hair. To finish, I use DevaCurl Light Defining Gel to help hold the curls and of course, I always air dry my hair.
