Meet Isabelle! Curly girl from Wolverhampton in the UK shares her continuous journey to keeping her curls healthy and nourished. 2 years down the line and her natural curl pattern has returned and styling with heat is a major no-no!
What inspired you to return natural?
I’m from Wolverhampton in the UK! I have never really known what to do with my hair, I always thought it was a weird frizzy wavy mess and that it would always be unmanageable. My mom has super curly hair naturally and I started to see videos online of women with hair like mine discovering that with the right care then their hair could be curly! This massively inspired me to treat my hair right and see if my hair was actually curly. So I switched to natural products and started diffusing my hair and it was curly from the first wash! I was so shocked! I have stopped using heat on my hair and I have now been caring for my hair properly for almost 2 years! It used to be so damaged from heat styling and just damaging products for so many years but my hair is at a place now where it is super healthy! My hair is now really shiny and not dry and brittle like it used to be. I absolutely love my natural curls now and I never use heat styling on my hair anymore as I love my curls! I feel so much more confident in myself now that my hair looks great and is really healthy!
What were the challenges (if any) along the way of your healthy hair journey?
I found that finding the right products for me was really challenging at first. With so many products on the market it can get confusing what your hair needs and all the different ingredients confused me. I struggled a lot with getting volume as I was using products that would weigh my hair down and I didn’t know what caused it.
What is your number 1 curl tip?
For me, my number one tip is to apply my products straight out of the shower on really wet hair! This helps me with definition and means my curls are super moisturised.
Discovering Flora & Curl
What made you buy Flora & Curl products? How did you hear about us?
I saw lots of girls on Instagram who have similar hair to me using your products and the results looked amazing!
How did you see your hair change after using Flora & Curl products?
I was struggling to get a balance between defined curls and volume. I’ve found that Flora & Curl products don’t weigh my hair down, meaning that I get that volume but also still get really good definition.
Which Flora & Curl product is your favourite and why?
I love the Sweet Hibiscus Curl Volumizing Foam. It gives my hair volume that I have never seen before without comprising definition.
What is your current Flora & Curl haircare routine?
I rake in the Sweet Hibiscus Curl Activating Lotion straight out of the shower. Then I glide the Sweet Hibiscus Curl Defining Gel over my hair and then scrunch. I follow by scrunching in the Sweet Hibiscus Curl Volumizing Foam and then diffuse my hair.
What sets Flora & Curl apart from other brands/products on the market?
Natural haircare with really great ingredients.
