Let’s talk hair for a second. Specifically, curly hair.
When it comes to my curls, I’m VERY particular. Like, I don’t just use anything in my hair to keep my curls intact. It needs special care. It needs the RIGHT kind of products. That’s why I have teamed up with John Frieda® Canada for this post.
You already know this if you have naturally curly hair. Growing up with curly hair was a real pain. As a kid, I never appreciated it. I always wished for straight hair. It was a nightmare trying to tame those curls. I used to legit take an iron to my hair. No really, like a clothes iron. LOL.
Who else did this? OWN UP!!
Anyway, once flat irons became more affordable, I convinced my parents to get me one. Game changer.
However, still a pain in the ass, because straightening my hair took a minimum of 4 hours. I’m not even making this up. I was literally in the bathroom for what seemed like, forever. This wasn’t working.
This was ALSO ruining my curls and my hair in general. I was getting major split ends, breakage, and extreme dryness.
After years of flat-ironing, I even tried Keratin, which is a smoothing/straightening procedure to keep your hair straight for months.
And no, that did not work for me.
