Jacquelynn's Curly Hair Journey

Heat tools damaged Jacquellyn's curls... AND her daughter's! Here's what she did about it.

NC: What is the best thing about being curly

JW: Diversity!!! I love that I can have so many different looks. A friend of mine told me that she loved my hair big and curly and that she knows some women who buy wigs that look like what I naturally have. That was a defining moment for me. 

NC: How do you think having curly hair impacts your life?

JW: Curly hair has a mind of its own, so most of the time I don’t fight it, because I just don’t have the time or the energy. I am grateful to be able to toss it up into a bun or high ponytail and go; or let the humidity do its thing and look like the cowardly lion BEFORE he got to Oz. Being able to go out in the rain and not care if your hair gets wet is always a plus!

NC: What would you tell others to encourage them to embrace their curls?

JW: Be proud of the way God intended for your hair to grow out of your head! Protect your hair and learn to love it the way it is. Take a little time to research your hair type so that you know the best way to care for it. Don’t let a disaster like heat damage make you realize that you are blessed to be a curly cutie.

NC: Tell us about your life and what you are up to!

JW: Right now I am working and sprucing up the new home my family moved into a couple of months ago. I also just started writing for my church’s Bible Study and I am working up the courage to start a blog! I love to write and so I want to use my gifts to help other people.
