How I get my Curl Power
My hair has always been a prominent part of my identity, and though I didn't grow up loving it (like most girls), I certainly have learned to embrace it fully. There isn't much maintenance that goes with it, but I have taken up a few pointers to ensure I'm keeping it relatively healthy: detangling hair before a shower, massaging coconut oil on ends, improving my eating habits (trying), and, most importantly, shampooing with Tea Tree Oil. Here is a step-by-step process of how I fix up my curly mane on a regular basis!
1. Wash hair and let air-dry
This is how my hair looks like after being air-dried; no products aside from shampoo and conditioner. This specific Tea Tree Oil shampoo from Maple Holistics is made with natural ingredients and supports cruelty-free operations, which I can always get behind. Since I've started using this 2-3 times a week, my scalp has been feeling cleaner and fresher. For those who would like to sample one of their products, check this out.
2. Spritz some heat protecting spray before applying heat
My go-to protectant has always been TRESemmé, but at this point my hair is far from being salvaged. I proceed anyway.
