The Busy Girl's Guide to Curly Hair

[image source- yes, that is me!]

Hi there lovelies!

Now, if there’s one thing I’ve learnt since becoming a blogger, it’s that there are so many different views and guides on how to do something a certain way- whether it’s how to apply mascara, how to gain blog traffic, or how to work out. I don’t believe there’s any right way of doing something that works for everyone, and I certainly think that’s the case when it comes to maintaining curly hair. I feel like mine is different to a lot of other peoples’ curly hair, but I have to accept that that’s okay.

Looking after curly hair when you’re busy and don’t have a lot of time on your hands (mostly to let it air-dry) is really difficult, and something I’ve found a real struggle since working full-time. Here you’ll find my tips on what I do to make the best of a bad situation when there just aren’t enough hours in the day to have perfect curls, and also what methods I’m planning on trying to get my hair back in lovely shoulder-tossing condition.

Since the summer, I have been stressing out about my hair. I couldn’t work out why my natural curls were dropping out, leaving me with straggly, lifeless hair that made me honestly quite depressed. It sounds silly, but it really does make you feel out of sorts when your hair isn’t behaving the way it normally does. I was convinced it was because, as the curls got less defined, I was relying on using my straighteners to curl the straighter bits. This was probably partly true, but I went and got a haircut from someone who knows what they’re doing at Toni & Guy in Harrogate, and she cut my layers short enough that my curls bounced back just in time for New York! Whilst in the midst of my hair ‘mare, I bought the entire John Frieda Frizz Ease Miraculous Recovery range, which I’ve been using for 2 months now, and I’m going to share my thoughts on it with you.
