Curly hair is such a defining feature for those who choose to rock their spiraled texture. The beauty of curls is that they can tie people of all different backgrounds together and create a multicultural community that is jam-packed with different faces and personalities. Our curl cream campaign featured models and influencers that are from all over the spectrum and we decided to amplify their voices by asking them a few questions about their curls. The answers we received were unexpected, moving and even comical at times. Continue reading to learn more about the faces behind the Prose custom curl cream campaign.

5. Have you ever tried to change your curls?
My curls have gone through an evolution. I couldn’t wait until I was old enough to relax my hair and when my mother allowed me to do it at the age of 12. I permed my hair 3-4x a year until I was 19 years old (I couldn’t afford to relax my hair while I was in college). I still managed to straighten my hair without a relaxer but as the natural hair movement became a trend, I was tempted to unlearn the beauty standard that I was exposed to and reconcile with my natural texture. I wasn’t confident enough to chop my dead hair, but I spent years scrunching my ends and testing different products and new style methods that would achieve the best hair styles for me. My natural hair is now 4 years old and I’m 28 years old 🙂
