Meet Diana Martha, a 28 year-old naturally curly social worker-turned-entrepreneur.

NC: What are your favorite hairstyles to wear with your curls?

DM: Half up, half down is my “go to” look. Other than that, I usually don’t have much variety in how I style my hair — but I never straighten it!

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

DM: I have three products that I swear by and have used throughout the years...

1. SheaMoisture Coconut and Hibiscus Hold and Shine Moisture Mist as a leave in conditioner;

2. Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper to style; and

3. Arbonne SeaSource Detox Spa Detoxifying Rescue Wash to deep cleanse my hair regularly. I always have a “good hair day” on the days I “detox” my hair. I also can’t live without the clips from Sally Beauty!

NC: What do you do at nighttime for your hair?

DM: I sleep on a "Sharmooz" satin pillowcase! I bought it about two years ago and it's the best thing I've ever done for my curls!

NC: What about your hairstylists?

DM: Believe it or not, I cut my own hair, and my stepsister's too!  I don’t have any formal training, but I was frustrated with paying $80+ to get my hair butchered at salons time and time again. So I went out one day and bought professional shears. I’ve been cutting my own hair for about three years now, and I couldn’t be happier!
