Going Natural – Starting your journey the right way
To Chop or Not to ChopOne of the scariest aspects of going natural for many women used to the perm and relaxer life is whether or not they will have to cut off all of their hard-earned length. The answer is a mixed bag anywhere you ask. Here at Bella Curls, we have a solid mix of Big Choppers and Transitioners. The benefit to starting your journey in the Spring and Summer months is having a great reason to cut it all off and start a new! There are so many gorgeous short and tapered styles out there for every face shape.
Chemicals say what?There are some absolute do and do not evers when it comes to what you put in your hair. Sulfates, Parabens, and Phthalates are all the way out! Harsh chemicals in your products will undo all the good work you are doing to stay away from perms and relaxers. Take this moment to go spring clean your hair care area. There are lots of natural products that you should look for in your haircare that your tresses are craving right now. Coconut oil, Shea Butter, healthy proteins and lots of extra slip for detangling. Avoid heat as much as you can for a while do and work up your no-heat styling chops by styling your hair at night and letting it dry overnight. A little blow drying with a diffuser on low heat can help train your curls back to life, just make sure you aren’t blasting them to frizz with high heat or high winds!
