As one of eight children, each with a different hair type, Eileen Brody struggled to learn about her curly hair.

NC: So from start to finish, on a curly day, what’s your process?

EB: I wash my hair, condition it, towel dry it, comb it, apply ThermaFuse and maybe a little bit of Moroccanoil. After several hours my hair dries and I  take a pick and lightly comb parts of my hair — only about 20% of it.

NC: What about your hair stylists?

EB: My hair stylist likes to blow dry my hair straight for a change of look, but my husband and daughter really prefer my hair curly. I look like a different person with it straight! My husband thinks that I have great curls and that it is a special part of my look.

NC: What are you favorite hair styles to wear with your curls?

EB: If I am going out, I usually wear my hair down and parted to the side, but I often keep my hair up and off my face and shoulders.

NC: What are your must-have products?

EB: ThermaFuse or some sort of styling gel.
