I'm far from a model and I lowkey hate taking photos, but I love my style and sharing it with you all. I also love to write, and blogging allows me to do it all. Follow your dreams, guys. They exist for a reason! This look is on my blog now. #linkinbio Photo by @camilleshawphoto ✨✨✨

A decisão de assumir os cachos é a mais difícil no processo todo de transição capilar, que é a desistência do uso de químicas e/ou de ações térmicas diárias (como a chapinha, por exemplo). Se você tomou coragem de mostrar seu cabelo real, com certeza vai aprender fácil como cuidar dele. Nossa colunista @dudabuchmann do blog @negraecrespa separou algumas dicas que a ajudaram bastante no início da transição. Todas elas podem ser usadas tanto quem está com cabelo meio liso meio cacheado, quanto quem está com cabelo todo natural, mas não tem o costume de cuidar.
1 – Use somente produtos para cabelo cacheado/crespo
2 – Hidratação sempre
3 – Substitua a toalha por uma camiseta de algodão
4- O leave-in será seu melhor amigo

[ Slicked, and styled with dots -n- color ]. I have always loved the timeless look of polka dots, and have learned over time that the smaller ratio pattern is more flattering on my curves. And since on warmer days like today I can't imagine wearing all-black, it's fun to add a pop of color to this black-and-cream top, such as with these bright pink cigarette slacks. Both are "career-wear" garments from JCPenney, and have carried me through two seasons now. These are the type of investment pieces I never regret buying precisely for that reason.
As for hair, since I deep conditioned in the sun yesterday, I didn't want to do any kind of styling with it after that or today. So it was nice to just leave it completely natural, detangled and in a protective braid the rest of yesterday. This morning for work, I just had to add a couple of drops of lite styling paste @Aquagehaircare) and some @Ovellaglo to slick it back, using my @Crickettools Ultra Smooth Coconut Detangling Brush. Although I try not to pull my hair back too often to avoid stretching my curls, what I love about the condition my hair is in now is the fact that they bounce back easily. For the occassional sleek style, I can use certain tools to achieve the same look I used to get "back in the day", when I was pulling it taut, causing breakage. Alhough this style "appears to be" super tight, it actually really isn't. It's all in the technique and in the styling products that are used to achieve the look, or in this case, the optical illusion. . As soon as I get home, I will shake it out of this slicked back, low bun style, and use my flairosol to re-wet it, re-encourage my curl and air dry it, as usual, for the rest of the night. :
I think part of the fun with fashion, makeup and haircare is evolving our techiques and choices as our tastes, hair and bodies evolve, too. 😉
