Denisse's Curly Hair Journey

"When I was growing up, curly hair was not pretty" ... Read how Denisse overcame the opinions of others.

Denisse's Curly Hair Journey
NaturallyCurly: Please introduce yourself!

Denisse Mayers: My name is Denisse Mayers and I'm a 23-year-old Masters student in Sweden. I enjoy dancing, movies, crafting and working out.

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

DM: When I was growing up, curly hair was not pretty.

We were not allowed to wear curly styles to school either, so I always brushed my hair or blow dryer it during my high school years.

Then I went to college and started straightening my hair so I would look like most North American girls. It wasn’t until 2010 that I decided to step out and wear my hair like God intended.

I discovered that my hair, opposite to what I had been told most of life, was beautiful and full of attitude. I started trying many curly hair products, but I still straightened my hair often…until I came across this wonderful webpage!

I've discover so many methods and routines for curly hair! I've been wearing my hair natural for a year. Sometimes I still get the “When are you going to brush your hair?” look from my family and friends back home, but there’s no one else I rather be than my curly self.
