The Girl with the Curls
(Me in front of the Old Well at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)
My entire life, I have had curly hair. The adage about people with curly hair wants pin-straight hair and people with straight hair want tight curly hair never applied to me. I love my curls. These bouncy, voluminous, tight curls had, have, and will always be my defining feature. Just like anything else, hair requires time and energy to ensure high quality. So today, I want to talk to you about my hair care routine. In the wise words of hair guru Zohan Dvir aka Scrappy Coco, "Let's go."

Step 1: Olaplex Number 3
I damp my hair put a quarter size amount of Olaplex No.3. I let it sit in for a minimum of 10 minutes. According to the Olaplex website, "N,o.3 is what you use at home once a week or more to rebuild bonds in the hair." Since I have a lot of hair, I recommend someone with my hair type to leave it in for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Step 2&3: Moroccan Oil Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner and Moroccan Oil Hydration Mask
When I am in the shower, I apply two shampoo pumps first to remove any sweat or dirt from the day. Depending on the day, I either use two hydration conditioner pumps or use a half dollar size of Moroccan oil hydration mask. I have very thick hair, so I keep the deep condition longer than most. On average, I keep the mask on for about 30 minutes and then wash it out. The mask is excellent whenever my hair is dry or has a lot of knots.
Step 4: Olaplex No.6.
After I comb my hair with a wide tooth comb, I apply the Olaplex No 6. For my curly hair, it helps define my curls with out making my hair look stiff.
Here is what my hair looks like after using all of these products (plus a Moroccan Oil salon deep condition) and a hair diffusion at Beauty Boutique 54.
