As a little girl, I always had neck length hair and no idea what to do with it. I would brush it way too much, to the point where it became ridiculously big and unmanageable.
Secondary school was a time when straight hair was a massive trend but again, I was clueless in regards to how to do it properly and apply such procedure to my natural hair.
I am from a Tunisian background and while traveling to Tunisia in the past, the first thing I would automatically do upon arrival was going to the hairdresser.
Such ritual made me realise something: hair straightening happens to be the basics of every hairdressing process. You straighten first, then you style.
It was strange for me to witness such thing and now taking a step back I also find it quite annoying as in my opinion, curly hair is prettier than straight hair will ever be!
Growing up has a big impact on the decision you take in regards to your hair.
Personally, maturity made me realise that my curly hair is here, whether I want it or not. Loving it isn’t an option.
Furthermore, I don’t have the patience to spend hours in my bathroom trying to ‘fix’ what I naturally have on my head.
Curly haired women are beautiful!
It would be great if they could stop spending so much money to hide their true nature. Straighteners, wigs, weaves… Your natural hair is great.
If you want to change your hairstyle from time to time that's fine, but hiding your hair because you don’t like its nature isn’t a solution.
