If you’ve been natural for any amount of time you know that, as much as you #LoveYourCurls, sometimes natural hair can be unpredictable. The versatility that comes along with natural curls and kinks is amazing but, I’ll admit, rocking natural hair isn’t always a cake walk. Sometimes even after trying your darnedest, you still wake up looking like this…
…wondering how the heck you’re going to get work, brunch, or date-ready with hair that doesn’t seem like it wants to cooperate. Well, fret not ladies. Here are a few ways I’ve learned to love my curls even on a not so great hair day:
If you’re suffering from flattened curl “bed head” (like I was in the troll photo), try refreshing your curls in the morning with the steam from the shower. Don’t actually put your head under the stream of water, but rather leave the shower cap off and just let the steam from the shower penetrate your strands. Like a sponge, your curls will often come back to life again.
Realize that you’re probably the only one that thinks you’re having a bad hair day. I can’t tell you the number of times I thought I was having an ehhh hair day that I’ve been stopped on the street by women asking for tutorials on how to re-create the look.
