NaturallyCurly's new editorial intern talks about her natural hair journey.
NC: What do you do at night time for your hair?
CA: I leave my hair down most of the time but if it’s really hot, I’ll pile my hair on the top of my head in a bun. I’m always careful to use a scrunchie — I don’t want my curls to break!
NC: What is the best thing about being curly?
CA: It’s easy and beautiful! I get more compliments on my curls than I ever did when I straightened my hair. I also love that it’s incredibly versatile. Although I usually choose to wear it natural, it can also be styled easily.
NC: How do you think having curly hair has impacted your everyday life?
CA: Being curly has really simplified my daily routine. Instead of spending an hour on my hair in the morning, I spend five minutes and then use the rest of the hour to drink coffee and start the daily crossword.
NC: What would you tell others to encouraging them to embrace their curls?
CA: Once you try it, you will never turn back! But you can’t expect to love your hair in a week. It takes time to find the hair care routine and products that suit you.
NC: Tell us about your current and upcoming projects. Tell us about your life and what you are up to!
CA: When I’m not at the NaturallyCurly office, I’m working in book publishing or writing my own material. I’m looking forward to returning to Boston in the fall and then studying abroad in the UK.
