Before I went on my natural hair journey last year I had such negative language towards my hair. I didn’t even know the word coil and just assumed I had no curl pattern and it was just what I like to call bush and a bit embarrassing. My hair was always a problem to sort out with a relaxer or blowdry ASAP. I have nothing against a fabulous power blowdry, weaves or relaxer and I do love a good hair whip but they should come from a place of love and acceptance, of your own natural hair texture, which I never had. Here, I caught up with Aveda’s Master Director to learn how to categorise curls & coils, as one head of hair can have multiple textures. The more you learn about your hair, the better you can prescribe the right hair care and styling products and techniques. Knowledge is power and the more you can demystify your curls, the more you can love them!
