Stop! Before you reach for that hot iron or chemical straightener. While many hair stylists advise that these methods are “perfectly safe”, long term use can lead to hair breakage and dullness, as it interferes with your natural texture and oils. Instead of fighting the force of nature and bullying your hair into looking the way it just wasn’t meant to look, why not try going with the flow? It will save you mountains of stress, irritation and ultimately frustration, when your hair just seems to have a mind of its own! Here are some guidelines to rocking those natural curls, using the most gentle and nourishing products.
