My name is Sheridan, and I have a long mane of curly hair! (Like Merida from Brave but brunette). I am currently 26 years old, and in those years, I loved, hated, and learned a lot about my hair and curly hair in general.
I wanted to create this website for those of you who have curly hair like me and need some advice, ideas, info, etc. Whether you’re looking for a new hairstyle that works, want to know about the best products on the market, or you’re having a freak out ‘I have no idea what to do about my hair’ moment, I can help you out.
So if you ever have questions, concerns, or just want to discuss curly hair, please feel free to leave comments and get involved on my site!
A little bit more about me and my experiences…
As a kid, my dear mom (who has straight VERY fine hair) didn’t know what to do with “the mane”. I spent most of my elementary school years with what I can only describe as a brushed-out ‘fro. As a teenager, I learned that no one on earth seemed to know how to handle my hair. When my friends and I would get together before school dances to get ready and do each other’s hair, they would end up getting frustrated and giving up on doing anything to my hair. I was always left to take care of it myself. I was terrified of going to a hair salon to get my hair done. At 17, I had yet to find anyone that didn’t loudly declare how much they hated dealing with it. And so for years, I had my sister cut off a couple inches straight across every now and then…it was not a great look. I hated my hair. I hated that people wanted to touch it and gush about how wonderful it was. This frizzy mess that I put 2 pounds of conditioner in a day and it does nothing? No way.
As a young adult, I did my research and started the journey of experiencing what feels like a thousand different products…shampoos, conditioners, leave-ins, straighteners, diffusers, etc. I also began the journey of hopping from website review to website review, salon to salon to find a good hair stylist that knew what they were doing and wouldn’t cause me massive anxiety attacks. And through all of those experiences and experiments, I have learned to rock my wild mane and consider it a big part of who I am now.
Suffice it to say, I know a lot about curls, and enjoy continuing to stay in the know about it! I hope you enjoy sharing in my journeys and experiences. =)
Thanks for stopping by!
