Your friendly guide to a healthy hair journey.

The path my hair has been through was quite the roller coaster ride.

My mom has straight hair so she didn’t understand my hair type. Also growing up in Morocco the beauty standards are very western. So having frizzy hair as a kid in school and as a teenager did not help, my hair went through it all, from chemical straightening and having blowouts every weekend the heat damage finally killed it all, and I was left with dry thin damaged hair.

The breakthrough:

Once I have moved to Spain I have decided to let me hair have a break, then realized that the roots that were growing were curly, so then I started my curly hair journey. Fast forward 3 years my hair couldn’t be bigger and healthier.

Here are some tips and things I did that I would recommend you if you are going through the same thing on getting your natural hair back!
