Gloria's Curly Hair Journey

I have always been natural and the reactions are mixed. Some love it, others constantly ask why I don't give in and straighten it.

Gloria's Curly Hair
NaturallyCurly: Please introduce yourself!

Gloria: My name is Gloria. I am thirty-one years old and the mother of a ten-year-old girl.

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

Gloria: I have always embraced my curls, but I only recently learned to enjoy them.

NC: What's your current routine?

Gloria: I wash my hair 3-4 times a week and I leave in the conditioner for as long as possible (usually twenty minutes). I like to switch up my products every now and then; I am currently using Herbal Essences Hydra-licious Shampoo and Conditioner.

NC: From start to finish, on a curly day, what's your process?

Gloria: Pretty simple...I wash and condition, then use L'Oreal Everstyle Free Curl Defining Gel and sometimes I add Suave Moroccan Argan Styling Gel. I always air dry my hair.

NC: What are your favorite hairstyles to wear?

Gloria: I like to leave my hair down and loose, but occasionally I'll wear it in a ponytail.

NC: What are your must-have products and tools?

Gloria: One of my must-have products is a good conditioner (a favorite is Mixed Chicks leave-in, which is also a great curl definer). I also need a wide tooth comb.
