Elegant Dressing - Loving & Managing Naturally Curly Hair

I've recently returned to my natural texture hair after decades of chemically straightening/relaxing it. With invaluable guidance from Anthony Dickey, owner of the Hair Rules Salon in Manhattan it took 2 1/2 years to grow out my relaxed hair, followed by a couple of years just having it conditioned and blow-dried weekly.  This Fall I finally decided to take the plunge and return to my natural texture hair.  And what an interesting journey it has been, to say the least.   

My friend and fellow blogger, Jackie Nickelberry recently wrote a post on her Jackie Unfiltered Blog chronicling her own particular hair journey.  She explains how she learned to love, manage and maintain her signature mane of distinctive blonde pre-Raphaelite curls.  I found her tips so on point I told her I have to share the post with my readers. I certainly learned a thing or ten about managing my own hair situation and maybe some of my curly haired sisters will learn something new too!!

 Jackie with her hair in straight corporate mode...  Circa 2005 and about 28 years old. This is the first professional headshot I took when I worked in New York City as an attorney. As you can see, I went through a phase where straight hair was my am. At 40 years old, I can’t remember the last time I straightened my hair.
