NC: What are your favorite hairstyles to wear with your curls?

Ana: My favorite hair styles to wear are the fro, the halo updo or just leaving my hair down with its natural curl pattern. NC: What are your must-have products and tools?

Ana: My must-have products are Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner and Garnier Fructis Leave-In Conditioner. My must-have tools include bobby pins and a blow dryer; I don't use the blow dryer often but I still need it from time to time.  NC: What do you do at nighttime for your hair?

Ana: At night, I usually dampen my hair with water or a mixture of water and leave-in conditioner. I either wrap it in my keffiyeh or leave it down. NC: What reaction did you get when you first decided to go natural?

Ana:  I received mixed reactions. Some people loved my big curly hair and others were simply not impressed. NC: Did you big chop or transition and for how long? Did you ever have any curly girl insecurities?

Ana: I transitioned for 1-2 years and honestly, cutting my hair to get my curls back didn't even cross my mind. My hair grows very slowly and I was—and still am—far too attached to it. I know that if I would have been made to cut most of my hair off, it would have left me in a very vulnerable place.

Your hair is gorgeous! I have hair that is very similar to yours and just as big and crazy and curly. I´ve only every seen long curly haired people with thin hair and loose curls. I have thick hair and tight curls but I've been wanting to let it grow waist length. (with no stretching) I wasn't sure what it would look like but now I know, that it looks beautiful. I´m definitely growing it out now!
