A few months after Emilia was boring my hair starting falling out in clumps. Around 6-7 months I started noticing my hair growing back especially towards the front of my hair. Eight and a half months now and my hair is looking fuller. My baby hairs are longer and I don’t look like a 5th grader that chopped her own bangs because she was upset with her parents. I have been going back and forth about dying my hair so my curls will pop more. I’m just so nervous, I’ve always had dark one tone hair. My curls are so nice though and I really want to go for something a little different.
Shea Moisture curling soufflé
I liberally applied bounce curl light gel throughout my wet hair in two sections. Clumped my hair then proceeded to scrunch it. Then soon after scrunching it I used my diffuser and started diffusing it.
I had to learn to love my natural curls. As a young kid, I never appreciated how beautiful my natural hair is. I consistently used heat on it whether it was to straighten it, curl it, or blow dry it. As I became a young adult I realized that my hair could be really beautiful if I took care of it. Finally as an adult, with patience and tlc, I have embraced my curly hair and working it to its full beautiful potential.
The top picture is from not taking care of it. I was negligent in the products I used, always tied it up, my hair was falling out due to post-partum. It was just an ugly sight.
The bottom picture is me finally taking action again. Pre-pregnancy my hair was alive and my curls looked amazing. With the hormone changes my hair suffered a lot. Now I have taken back the control and I love it. With social media I have learned about different profound techniques to help promote natural curls.
