Stacy's Curly Hair Journey

The best thing about being curly? "I love that my daughters look at my hair and love the curly hair they have."

NaturallyCurly: Please introduce yourself!

Stacy Hogan-Adell: My name is Stacy!

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

SHA: I haven't always embraced my natural hair, and I was relaxed for many years. After the birth of my second daughter, I decided to stop with the “creamy crack” and began with wigs/weaves. After losing my edges and suffering from a damaged scalp, I booted the wigs and would just go with getting my hair pressed every month or so, keeping with the straight styles. It was not until I began working in the department of Africology here in our state college that I finally regained my love for my naturally nappy hair. With so much support and so many resources, I am now a proud, fro-wearing, curl-enhancing naturalista!

NC: What's your current routine?

SHA: I’m still searching for a routine, working out my process that will work for my hair. I find that on a “wash day,” it’s washing with SheaMoisture, conditioning with As I Am, squeeze drying, applying SheaMoisture Curl Cream and Eco Styler gel and then styling my hair in bantu knots (which I love) or flat twists (my go-to style).
