Natural Hair | Tips for Loving Your Natural Curls at Any Length


It's hard to believe that in just a few months I will be celebrating my sixth year of rocking my natural curls.  Time has truly flown by, but the most amazing part is that I can still say it was one of the best decisions I've ever made.  There were times during my journey that I wished my hair would grow faster or be curlier, but today, I can say that I love my hair just the way it is.  Throughout my journey, I've worn everything from a teeny weeny afro to big, voluminous curls.  Since I've gone through every stage of the natural hair journey, I'm here to tell you that there is beauty in every stage and length of your curls.

I'm excited to be partnering with Dove today to share tips for embracing your curls at any length and my experience using the Dove Quench Absolute Supreme Crème Serum.  Keeping my hair healthy at any length includes washing and conditioning my hair once a week, low manipulation and keeping it as moisturized as possible.

I recently tried the Dove Quench Absolute Supreme Crème Serum in my hair routine and I love how soft my curls were.  This serum is first ‘on-the-go’ leave-in treatment for curls by Dove Hair that is a fast absorbing, lightweight serum that utilizes a creamy formula to nourish hair for the ultimate shine and manageability.  I applied it after washing and conditioning my hair then two strand twisted my hair.  My twist out was soft and defined.  It can be used alone to style your hair or combined with another cream to define curls.  I felt it worked best when combined with another styling product.

When it comes to hair length, I know to some it may not matter; however, length was and is still a huge deal to many women.  Since I have gone from wearing my hair short to long and back short again, I can appreciate that there are really great things I love about each stage.

Tips for Loving Your Natural Curls at Any Length

1.  Close Cut to Teeny Weeny Afro

This stage initially scared me the most as I was transitioning to wearing my natural curls, but I ended up loving this stage the most.  It goes to show you that you never know how you will like something until you try!  This stage rocks for the following reasons:

  • Low maintenance.
  • Hats are your friend!
  • Quick to get ready.
  • Easy to throw on a wig or have a protective style installed.
  • Coils are a great style!

2.  Medium Length Hair

Some may refer to medium length hair as the awkward stage, but don't be fooled.  There is quite a bit you can do with this length.  This stage rocks for the following reasons:

  • Medium maintenance.
  • Twists, braids, twist outs, braid outs, coil outs, etc.
  • There are more options for protective styles such as wearing your twists for a few days, trying a marley hair bun, etc.

3.  Longer Length Hair

Although longer hair may take some extra care, there are so many possibilities and things to love!   This stage rocks for the following reasons:

  • Protective styles galore!
  • Buns
  • Ponytails
  • Twists, braids, twist outs, braid outs, coil outs, etc.

What do you love about your curls?  What's your favorite length to wear your hair?

God bless & stay fab,
