17 Mar Curls: Are You Addicted To Twist-outs?
Hello Curl Friends! An interesting question posed by my then hair crush Chime Edwards to witch i considered this question in response: Are there do’s and dont’s for kinky, curly hair? If not, aught there be?
My curiosity to explore curly hair custom and ritual was born out of an experience i had that lead me to this question. Could there be a recognized “standard” custom for new naturals? What are the staple-style options natural curls go-to?
My experience in Beauty School: A young woman of colour, the only one other than me at the time, embracing her natural texture but in a most unusual way. I had been natural four years, confident in my own way, after cherry picking curly style and technique ripped off curly beauty bloggers and trend setters from the early two-thousands. Her hair is damaged from chemical relaxer and high tension styling and looks un-kept as she sacrifices good healthy looking hair for length. She sits in class with picks and styling tools jammed in her hair, It seems inappropriate. I can appreciate her car-free approach but Im mildly offended.
