My First Blog - My Curly Hair Journey

June 22, 2019

Creating a blog was in my 5 year plan when I bought my business... 6 years ago. Something keeps stopping me... I'm trying to find the confidence.... so here goes to my first blog (2nd attempt because somehow I just deleted everything)

I am a Curly Girl.... always have been. My Granny used to say I looked like Shirley Temple.... she was right, wilder but beautiful blonde curls....

Then something happened.... my grade school pictures I look like a boy with short hair, big eyebrows & No Curls! I asked my Mom why she had my hair cut that short. She said I had messy, unruly curly hair & she couldn't handle it.

In high school I tried growing my hair, just when I started liking my messy hair, Mom took me for a hair cut... no more wings & back to hating my hair.

The summer of grade 11 seemed like a good time to get a perm.... nope! It was a tight curl & I hated it.. so I took the razor to it... um... not a great idea either. So I started grade 12 with the worst hair of my life. My husband still says he can't believe he stayed with me. From that moment I grew & grew & grew my hair.

I avoided hair salons for years (my business is a hair salon* good karma).

After college, a friend convinced me to get a perm.... it was better with a bigger curl. The next few years I got perms, never loving them until they relaxed alot. Eventually I stopped getting perms & realized I had natural curly hair. With the long length of my hair I had awesome wavy hair.

In my early 30s, my "funny" husband said "Tara, the 80s called, they want their hair back" Ha Ha Ha

Not sure what he was thinking because he likes my hair long & that comment started me on the path to shorter hair. Well the joke was on me because now I had curly hair to "deal with" & I didn't love my curls.

Deva Curl saved me..... I now know how to deal with my hair & the products have helped me Love My Curly Hair.... well most days
