Please introduce yourself!
My name is Emily, but my mom calls me Bobi and it has kind of stuck! I'm fifteen years old and I love to sing, play guitar and piano and read. I've been a naturally curly girl all my life.
Why did you start Bobi Curls?
I wanted to start Bobi Curls because I thought that it would help me and many other curly girls to become more confident with our curly hair and to love the hair that God has given us.
How and when did you start embracing your curls, or have you always enjoyed and embraced your curls?
I have not always enjoyed my hair. When I was little, I would always wish that I had straight hair, or at least wavy hair like the Disney princess, Sleeping Beauty! I only started loving my hair when my mom did the big chop. She fell in love with her hair immediately and was obsessed with it! We began hunting for good natural products and reading curly girl books. When I saw my mom loving her hair, I began to appreciate mine.
