Best Travel Hair Dryer For Curly Hair

Are you a curly haired girl traveling for the holidays? Are you ripping out your curls trying to figure out how to pack your hair products and tools? I totally get it. I have two trips coming up for Thanksgiving and Christmas. A flight to Indiana and New Hampshire. Each one is an extended stay and will require a wash day. That means I’m going to need a travel hair dryer and diffuser. In the past I’ve traded in space and weight to bring my trusted BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Portofino full size dryer. However, it weighs almost 2 pounds and makes packing awkward. I also worry about it breaking during transportation. With a $100+ price tag, I’m done with taking that risk! We like to travel. Whether it’s a road trip around the states or internationally. My goal was to find a mini hair dryer and diffuser that would give…

How To Deep Condition Curly Hair With A Heat Cap

Are you struggling with dry, frizzy curls or lifeless, weighed down waves? I have experienced both in my curly girl journey. This past week, I discovered that I have low porosity hair.

Specifically, deep conditioners. This week, I decided to try using a microwavable heat cap to deep condition my hair. FYI: This post may include affiliate links, but all thoughts are my own!

A New Start: My Curly Girl Journey

“I am accepting and loving my natural hair.” This has become my daily mantra for the past 8 weeks. As the famous adage goes “We always want what we can’t have.” For me, it was luscious, silky straight hair. I was born with dark, straight locks. It wasn’t until my thirteenth birthday that I asked my mother for a spiral perm. She brought me to the local Empire Beauty School where they worked 6+ hours on my hair. The results were stunning and I was one happy teenager. Twenty-three years later, I still have those curls. Somewhere between that milestone birthday and puberty, I became a natural curly girl. The last two decades, my relationship with my hair has been an ongoing struggle. During high school, little was known about the care of curls and I brushed, curled and blow dried it with frizzy, voluminous results. During college, I chopped…
