“With confidence, you have won before you have started” – Marcus Garvey

Without a doubt, rocking a curly hair style is not easy to do and often times it takes years of maturity to develop the confidence to do so. The reason is curly hair gets a lot of attention and you must have a good amount of self-confidence to know that you look good. Here are four things that we believe will help you become more confident with your natural hair.

TAKE YOUR TIME

Take your time to learn about your hair and understand what kind of hair type you have. No two curls are the same, so what might work for your friend might not work for you. Therefore, you should test out different products for yourself and give each testing period a couple of weeks time. The more time you take getting to know your hair then the better able you’ll be to manage it. This will definitely lead to a boost in self-confidence, because you’ll know that your hair is looking healthy and moisturized.

BE CONSISTENT

We just mentioned that you should take your time testing out different curly hair products. Once you find the curly hair product(s) that work for you then you should use it consistently.

BE REAL

Curly hair in general can be styled in a ton of different ways, but that does not mean that your hair can do them all. You have to be real with yourself and understand what your hair is capable of. We all have different hair types, careers, training regimes, and lives, so you need to find a hair routine that best suites you. There will probably always be someone who has longer or curlier or thicker hair then you and they will be able to do things that you just can’t. Do not focus on what they can do and what you “can not do”. Instead, be real and focus on your strengths.

EXERCISE

Exercise, and specifically cardio, is a fantastic way of getting your hair in great shape. The reason is it improves the levels of sebum which is the substance that keeps hair moisturized. Without a doubt, this leads to healthier and stronger hair. In addition, exercise will increase your blood flow which will make sure that more oxygen gets delivered to your scalp. Last, but definitely not least, exercise will help reduce your levels of stress. To much stress and your hair will become grayer and thinner.
