Meet Keila from San José! Keila is sharing her curl journey with you and we are certain that you will feel much more inspired to take the plunge to returning natural after this story! 

The Journey

What inspired you to return natural?

Hi! I'm name is Keila, I'm 24 years old and I from San José, Costa Rica. This is a tropical country so I have to fight with frizz every day. And when I was younger my hair was so frizzy and without definition - this stopped me from loving them.

In college I cut my hair very very short to be more comfortable and when it grew again I saw a big beautiful curls. So I decided to be more careful with them and return to natural. I started to follow the curly girl method and was so disciplined with it, and the changes are HUGE. I then started to follow ig influencers, searching for tips on the internet and looking for better products. These things have a huge impact on your hair. So, never give up and remember that you can have good products that are natural and environmentally friendly.

Today my hair looks amazing and I'm totally in love with it and with me. It has not been easy, but I have learnt so much about my hair and me. I know i'm not done yet but people see me and say that my hair is beautiful and I'm so grateful for that.

What were the challenges (if any) along the way of your healthy hair journey?

Know that we have good hair days and bad hair days. This is totally normal for our curly hair. Also buy the correct products from your hair. I have bottles that I am incapable of finishing because my hair doesn't like the product. And it's money that I have unfortunately lost. But when you find the right product it is amazing.

What is your number 1 curl tip?

Learn the curly girl method it's awesome! You don't have to follow it very strictly if you don't want to. For instance, it is better to see what your hair wants.

Discovering Flora & Curl

What made you buy Flora & Curl products? How did you hear about us?

I see it in virtual stores in my country and I fell in love with the ingredients so I just had to try them!

How did you see your hair change after using Flora & Curl products?

I saw my hair change through how smooth it became. The definition I got and I also had much less frizz.

Which Flora & Curl product is your favourite and why?

The Sweet Hibiscus Curl Activating Lotion! When I first smelt it, I thought it was just amazing. And with the product being infused with protein, I noticed that my hair loves stylers with protein in it.

What is your current Flora & Curl haircare routine?

To style my curls I used the Sweet Hibiscus Curl Activating Lotion and then add the Sweet Hibiscus Curl Volumizing Foam

What sets Flora & Curl apart from other brands/products on the market? 

Flora & Curl are environmentally friendly and the products are natural. Also the packaging is amazing and so, so beautiful. I like the idea of the 1-litre presentation of the products too!
