I have a confession to make…I hopped on the collagen peptide train! It’s not usually my thing to follow trends as they come and go. I am more of a traditionalist.

The goal for this DevaCurl cut was long lasting shape as I did not know when my next cut would be. Below are the details on how my stylists cut and styled my curls.
