Look, I had hair when I was born, and I feel like I've been on this curly hair journey ever since. Many of us come up in cultures where we are pressured to straighten our hair. Rebelling against that pressure can be hard. Meanwhile, learning to properly take care of curls can feel like an overwhelming undertaking. There's simply so much to learn (and, just as important, to UNLEARN)!
For years, I straightened my hair because curly hair care felt like too much work. My hair got severely damaged from years of chemical processing. I suffered hair loss and it looked like my curl pattern was permanently destroyed. I got a big chop and embarked on the journey to rebuild my curls. It took years but I am finally at a place where I am really happy with my hair.
Raviya's book Curlplexed is an invaluable resource for us curlies. It has all the essential info that helped me get my curls right, and I learned new tricks, insight, and product tips. Plus, I appreciate reading the stories of other women and their experiences with their curly hair. I highly recommend this book!
I have always struggled with maintaining curly hair and this book has helped so much with the relatable stories and helpful tips! Highly recommend
I didn’t realize how important porosity was until reading this book. Once I learned that my hair was low porosity. I changed steps in my regimen and my hair got sooo much healthier :)
I have worked as a hair stylist for years but when I started doing my daughters’ hair I was so confused. All 4 of my daughters have different curl patterns and I spent so much money and time experimenting with different products, applications and routines. This book simplified my approach and gave me great advice on how to find the best products for each of my girls by understanding their porosity. I was so impressed that Raviya knows so much about curly hair and the book is really easy to follow. I highly recommend it for anyone that keeps switching products, thinks their hair is frizzy or even if you just want to start embracing your curls and making them look their best.
