How To Stretch Your Natural Curly Hair


It’s not often I write blogs about my natural hair; I tend to leave that stuff for my Instagram. But I had an experience the other day at Devachan, a salon that specializes in curly hair, I just had to share.  First, a bit of back story.

As some of you know, I decided to rock my natural hair about 5 years ago after my hair broke off and fell out after years of over-processing. My daughter Casey, is my natural hair role model; I can remember looking at her hair and thinking, “She had to get that from SOMEONE and I carried her for 9 months. Maybe it was me?!” Anyway, I cut the last of the chemicals out of my hair in March 2009 and haven’t looked back.

Wearing my natural hair has been a wonderful journey of self-discovery but it’s also been something of a moving target. There is not a week that god by that I don’t learn something new about my hair. Recently, it was a styling tip.

I have been getting my hair cut and colored at Devachan Salon. But lately, my travel schedule with Sweet Retreats and Exhale has kept me out of the chair. So when I got back there the other day, my ends were in pretty bad shape, not to mention the color. Side note: in the cruelest twist of fate, my colorist was on vacation so while we snipped away the dead ends, the gray is still there.. taunting me.

I also discovered that my regular stylist was no longer with the company so a new guy took care of my locks and just when I thought I knew all there was to know about my natural hair, I learned a little trick about making my curls look longer!

This is my typical hairstyle. Hard part in the center with a bit of a shaggy look. This is 3rd day hair that I tied back at night and shook out the next day.
