Towards the beginning of the 2000s, poker straight hair was all the rage. Women everywhere were vying to attain that look, regardless of their natural hair texture. No stone was left unturned in the pursuit of said straight hair by all, even if it meant straightening one's hair to death defying its natural state, and burning it within an inch of its dear life! That time is behind us, thankfully as we are, at long last, living in a time where our natural beauty is celebrated. Curly hair in every form is beautiful and worthy of adulation and celebration.
Speaking of individuality, curls have long been touted as a statement of sorts. When a woman refuses to fall into pre-existing tropes of Western beauty standards and flaunts her curls in their natural glory, she may come across as somewhat rebellious; someone who does not and will not squeeze herself thin into society's narrow definitions of beauty. Her curls, strong and gravity-defying, is a reflection of her own self that refuses to be contained into rigid notions of femininity.
She is fearless and the strength of her personality defeats every odd. And what could be more alluring than a head of bouncy curls that lend its owner an air of effortlessness? A woman embracing her natural, unadulterated self is the height of cool and curls, by extension, even more so. In an era where we are constantly bombarded with absolute yet unattainable perfection in beauty the best way to be is to be yourself, curls and all! Owning one's curls is the sort of irreverence we all seek to achieve and rightly so.

They may be a lot of fun but curls also need special maintenance and care to look their best. Curls come in many shapes and sizes each has its unique way of styling —
Coils are small, tightly wound curls that have a lot of volume. Then there are soft waves that are usually found in thick hair. Loose, big curls are another type that does not have a lot of volume and tends to be relatively easy to style and manage.
These are the three main types of curls but needless to say, there tend to be endless variations of curls depending on a person's lifestyle, physiognomy, and environmental factors. There is endless discussion among women with curly locks reagents the best styling tools, products, and hacks that could miraculously change one's life!
A wide-toothed comb is your best friend as it will combat frizz and tame unnecessary and unwanted volume. It will also detangle easily. Next up is styling cream or mousse that will keep your curls soft, supple, and frizz-free. You could also go for a leave-in conditioner.
Curly-haired ladies can have a lot of fun with different hairstyles and cuts. A good hairdryer is essential to keep curls smooth as wet hair can lead to more frizz and unmanageable volume. Choose an ionic one that will not damage your locks. Investing in a curling tong is also a good idea as sometimes curls need some definition and styling.
Choosing a good hairstylist is important for achieving the right haircut for your curls. Whether you choose to wear your curls long or short make sure your hair is in great condition to make your curls your crowning glory!
