NaturallyCurly: Please introduce yourself!
Kelsey Morrison: My name is Kelsey and I'm 26 (almost 27). I live in San Francisco, CA but I was raised in Rye, NY.
NC: How and when did you start embracing your curls, or have you always been curly?
KM: When I was a little girl, my mom would comb my hair after a bath to get all the tangles out. My mom has curly hair too, so she knew what she was doing. One time, when I was three-years-old, my mother left me with my grandmother (who had four sons) at the beach for the week, and when she picked me up, my hair was in one big knot in the back of my head. She took me to a salon where they basically cut a lot of it out. When I was in my middle school/awkward phase, I would brush out all my curls creating a nest of frizz. I finally started to embrace my curls and experiment with different hair products when I was a freshman in high school.
NC: What is your current routine/regimen?
KM: I believe the key to keeping curly hair fresh is to use a combination of different products throughout the week. Never use the same product two days in a row because your hair will get used to it and stop working the way you want it to. Right now I am switching around between John Frieda's Sheer Blond shampoo and conditioner and TRESemme Flawless Curls shampoo and conditioner.
When I feel my hair is particularly dry, I use Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition shampoo and conditioner (my boyfriend's favorite, so I keep it in the shower). I always leave the conditioner in for a few minutes before combing through my hair to get all the tangles out (while the conditioner is still in).
