Hey guys. It’s Tamara. Have you ever found yourself wondering how to care for curly hair?

I grew up a typical child of the early 90’s. My fine, curly hair was shampooed and then brushed out into a halo of frizz. I grew up hating how unmanageable it was, and in my early 20’s I started flat ironing it daily doing all sorts of damage to it.

The birth of my son (who has very much inherited my insane hair) has inspired me to learn how to care for our curly hair. I can’t wait to share what I have learned, and hopefully save a few children out there from a very awkward, very frizzy kindergarten class photo like mine.
