My curl pattern is changing...

Hello everyone!

Today I want to talk to you about my curly hair journey. I discovered the Curly Girl Method over a decade ago, and I loved pampering my hair and seeing it curl in a way I did not know it could.

After years of wearing my hair curly, I wanted a change and started straightening it every Saturday. I eventually cut my long hair and wanted to wear my curls again. Luckily, my hair was not damaged and curled as it did before I straightened it. The last time I straightened my hair was in the spring of 2019. Whenever I wear my hair down, it's always in its wavy/curly state. Alternatively, I put it up in a bun.

However, in the last year or so, I noticed my curl pattern was getting looser. I cut it shorter because, as it grows longer, the weight of the hair can cause curls to stretch. Still, to this day, my hair is a much looser wave pattern. Throughout the years, I learned a lot about specific ingredients and hair care products, and I no longer follow the Curly Girl Method. I also cut my own hair following the pigtails cut YouTube video by Manes by Mell.

This is what my hair looked like in 2020...

My hair is healthy and balanced, so those are not the reasons why my pattern is changing. I decided to start documenting my curly hair journey on Instagram to be able to look back at photos and see which products and techniques work and which don't. I will also keep you updated on this blog. So if you are interested in wavy/curly hair, follow me on Instagram @cosette_z.

I don't have a more recent photo with my hair down, as I find myself wearing my hair up more times than not. I'll try not to put my hair in a tight bun. I'm aware that this type of hairstyle can loosen the curl or wave pattern. 

What is your hair texture? Do you ever wish it was different? Leave a comment and let me know.
