NaturallyCurly: Please introduce yourself!

Leila Davis: Hello! I am Leila, I am a 17-year-old senior at Stratford High School. I grew up in a small town in Stratford, Connecticut. My mother is mostly Irish/ Portuguese decent and my father is from Jamaica. Everyone thinks I inherited my red hair from the Irish side but surprisingly, I got it from my father! 

NC: How and when did you start embracing your curls?

LD: I started embracing my curls about two years ago when the "natural hair movement" became the fad. I realized how beautiful curly hair is, and ever since I have been embracing mine!

NC: What's your current routine?

LD: I wash my hair with SheaMoisture Moisture Retention Shampoo and then I condition with Pantene Moisture Renewal Conditioner. I then finger comb my hair and rinse. Finally, I apply the SheaMoisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie to my soaking wet hair and air dry. 

NC: So from start to finish, on a curly day, what is your process?

LD: On a curly day, I do a hot oil treatment, wash my hair, condition of course and use my SheaMoisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie. I use the raking and smoothing method.
