girl with curves We look up to curly girl Tanesha Awasthi as a leader in the body confidence movement, a female entrepreneur, and an award-winning blogger. She also happens to have a gorgeous head of healthy curls. We sat down to ask Tanesha how she does it all, and sought her advice for aspiring bloggers.

Introduce yourself.

Tanesha Awasthi, curly girl from the SF Bay Area.

How long have you been natural?

My relationship with my curls was a love/hate one for most of my teen and young adult life. At 18 I started straightening with relaxers containing lye, hot combs and flat irons.  No one ever saw my hair curly - I would wash and straighten weekly.

 Once I discovered the Japanese Thermal Straightener, I got it done against my hair stylist's advice and I instantly wished I had my curls back.

After getting extensions to repair the damage the treatment had done, I ended up cutting my hair above my ears and starting fresh. As it grew, I cut the treated/damaged hair and never looked back. That was 10 years ago!
