My Curly Mane

The hair on your head can be the “mane” extension of who you are or just another piece of you.

Regardless of how you define it, those natural curls and kinks are, at many times, a reflection of how you’re feeling at the different phases in your life.

Just like the different versions of ourselves, it’s important that we embrace our hair in its various forms, particularly in its natural state. Whether you are just being introduced to your tresses (check out these tips and information for newly natural gals) or falling in love with them all over again, this blog is for you.

This Blog

I created MyCurlyMane® to inspire other curlies and share stories about naturally curly hair, spirituality, and life’s journey … as well as to quit boring my non curly victims family members and friends with the joys and challenges of having naturally curly hair (read My Hair Story for details). It is my hope that this blog will educate, entertain, and help you with your curly mane as you navigate the updos and downs (and sometimes hair-raising adventures!) of life.
