Nidia's Curly Hair Journey

"The natural movement in South Africa is very slow and pretty much underground, so people don't really know what I mean when I say that I am going natural. "

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

Nidia Daniels: My name is Nidia Daniels. I am a twenty-something and a proud South African Coloured.

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

ND: I started embracing my curls in April 2013; I changed my mindset before taking any action. I started transitioning but then got frustrated at the lack of information for girls transitioning after heat damage. I then did a big chop in June 2013 and decided to keep it short for six months. My last big chop was December 19, 2013. 

NC: What's your current routine?

ND: I'll wash once a week and co-wash if I have product build-up between washings, which happens often.

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

ND: I will wash my hair with a sulfate-free shampoo, followed by conditioner. Then I will do a mini LOC method with Twisted Sista Leave-In Conditioner and coconut oil. Then I use either Twisted Sista 30 Second Curl Spray or Curl Activator. Finally, I press my hair down with a satin headscarf and leave it to dry and set.
