Why Our Curls Need Water

I'm holding in my hand the holy grail product for curls.

Back when I started transitioning in November of 2015 from heat-damaged straight hair to a head of thick, healthy curls, I basically had no clue about what I was doing.

While my husband--and, heck, our entire house--was sound asleep, I would lay awake in the dead of night, staring into the screen of my laptop as I watched one YouTube hair tutorial after another.

If only I used the gel she used, I thought.

Then I'd scurry off to Sally's Beauty Supply the next morning, plunk down another 20 or so bucks, and hurry back home to conduct a wash and go that rendered piss poor results.

And back to YouTube I'd go.

If only I used that conditioner, I would then whisper to myself.

Next, I'd hop in my car and drive to Target...

You get where I'm going with this.

I was the proverbial hamster on a wheel.

I would come to learn that the gels weren't the problem.

The conditioners weren't even the problem!

It was water I needed.

My hair lacked moisture, and there was no getting around that fact.

Please take a moment to view my YouTube vlog below to learn how I gave my hair what it had long craved.
