Yani's Curly Hair Journey

"I was adopted and my parents are Caucasian, so although they weren't to blame, I just never had the knowledge or background of how to keep my type of hair healthy."

NaturallyCurly: Please introduce yourself!

Yani Gallagher: My name is Yani Gallagher. I am twenty years old and I live in Tacoma, WA.

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

YG: I started embracing my curls about two years ago. I began my journey in September of 2011 when I began transitioning from years of over-processing my hair with relaxers, dyes, and just not taking proper care of my hair. I still wore my hair straight most of the time until I big chopped.

NC: What's your current routine?

YG: My current regimen is pretty simple. I usually section my hair and co-wash it every week. I shampoo about twice a month. I almost always finger detangle to prevent breakage. Then I dry my hair with a t-shirt and apply a moisturizer and an oil to seal the moisture in. I let my hair air dry and never use any heat on my hair. I also use a henna treatment every couple months which helps protect my hair & retain length. At night, I use a satin pillowcase to reduce frizz and breakage.
