Naturally curly hair is having a serious moment. More and more women are cancelling their salon appointments for chemical relaxers and getting rid of their flat irons. If you've been straightening your hair, it can be tough to transition back to natural curls, but there are many reasons to love your hair as is. Here are 5 reasons why we think you should love your natural hair (we know we love ours!).
Cost effective: Once you've transitioned and developed a good curl care regime, you can cut down on pricey salon visits. You'll no longer be paying for expensive and ultimately damaging chemical services. You might just be surprised by how much you're actually saving.
Healthy curls: Curls are the healthiest when they're natural. If you've been treating your curls with chemicals, odds are they've suffered some damage. You might have noticed your curls are more brittle and break easier when relaxed or colored. Natural hair won't experience the same type of breakage as chemically treated hair.
Styling options: Your natural curls give you tons of options for styling. You can let your curls get big and poofy, or use some product to create a sleek look. There are tons of different options for your curly hair, and lots of great ways to rock accessories.
Love water: When your hair is chemically treated, water can be your worst enemy. If your curls are natural, you no longer have to fear the rain or swimming. Moisture is no longer your enemy (curls love it!).
Be confident: When your hair looks amazing, nothing can get you down! One of the benefits of embracing your natural hair is that you become a role model for other naturalistas or those considering taking the plunge. Be sure to share your story, and answer questions from friends and family! You never know who you might inspire.
