My Hair Journey

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Hair Food. The opinions and text are all mine.

It’s been a little over three years since I made the big chop and decided to rock my curls full time. Since then, my hair has been the healthiest it’s ever been and it’s quite possibly the easiest style to maintain.  I’ll be honest though, the previous 10+ years didn’t exactly go that smoothly.

Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane.

I started straightening my hair in middle school and moved right into dying it as soon as I hit high school. For the next ten years, I was constantly changing my look. Applying heat daily, applying chemicals and different colors every few months and changing up my look whenever I got bored. I mean, I’ve done short, long, weave, bangs, red, black blonde, brown. I’ve done it all. And my hair was paying for it.

In December 2015, I made the decision to cut off all of the damage. My plan was to keep rocking it straight but via a short pixie-style cut. A few days after the haircut, I washed it, let it air dry, loved the curls and haven’t used a straightener since. Now that I’m officially team curly, I’m constantly on the hunt for products to keep my hair in the best possible shape in the healthiest way. I also color my hair every few months so having a good hair care regimen is key to keeping my curls moisturized and protected in between.

I was recently introduced to Hair Food and am now officially hooked. Their belief is simple: what you put on your hair is as important as what you eat. Hair Food is inspired by clean, simple, kitchen-crafted recipes full of ingredients you want to put in your hair and none of the things you don’t. No sulfates. No parabens. No dyes. No Compromises. It took me a few years to get to this point but now that I’m here, finding products that are actually GOOD for my hair has become a huge priority.

I started using the Moisture collection a few weeks ago and my curls have been poppin’ hard ever since. The Moisture Collection with Manuka Honey & Apricot includes a sulfate free shampoo, conditioner and hair mask and has everything you need to hydrate your locks and get that coveted shine. I love having these products as part of my new hair care routine and the fact that they are an affordable alternative to more expensive salon products doesn’t hurt.
