    Hey y'all! I'm Taylor! @taydwillis on Instagram. My email is I just want to say that I love your Instagram and blog, and the tips you provide in your posts are so helpful. Sometimes being natural gets discouraging because it is not as easy as it looks! One post that really helped me recently was the post about finger combing. I almost HAVE to comb my hair every day, but sometimes I forget how damaging that can be. I tend to forget how combing my hair can lead to breakage and shedding. Anyway.. Thanks for everything! It's really great to feel like I'm in a community where other people can relate and understand!

    I am a mascara junkie! Besides lip gloss, masscara is the only makeup I wear so, I enjoyed the post about the best mascaras for volume and length. There were a couple that I haven't tried listed and discussed and this only fueled my quest to try every mascara available…well, not every one but the good ones. 🙂 Thus far, my favorite department store mascaras are Benefit's They're Real, Dior Show & Lancome Defincils. And so far, my favorite drugstore mascaras are Neutrogena's Healthy Length & Healthy Volume mascaras. I follow on Twitter (@SBailey7) and Instagram (@SBailey777). Thanks!

    check this pic of me! –

    As a long term natural (5+ years) who has only really embraced my natural beautiful, God given textured tresses for over a year, i have been learning so much from this blog about not only accepting myself but also how to accept my hair and most importantly take certain measures to ensure optimal care for it. Accepting myself, and my hair and taking wonderful care of it and being confident is one thing I have learned from the Curls of the girls blog in general! I literally check this blog every few days (so most of the views probably come from me lol) and i share it with other naturals and non-naturals that hopefully they will be inspired.

    Some of the things shared on this blog like :
    -hair terminology
    -how to style my protective styles
    -how to avoid frizz with my natural hair and how to protect it during washes (avoiding hot water, using a t-shirt, finding products for hair with right amt of hold)
    -how to identify ingredients in hair products, what they actually mean and do (conditioners, sealants, fatty alcohols)
    -what prepooing is and how much of a difference it makes
    -spotlight monday highlights

    helped me not only be more comfortable but also be able to connect to all of the girls on the journey and know that i am not alone and learning is everyday. I know Ashley said 1 thing, and maybe I’m getting too deep, but this blog helped me also see that like Mama Bey said, “pretty Hurts” – to embrace your hair is a struggle, to accept yourself is a struggle, to take care of your natural hair can hurt, and to be a beautiful natural is not the easiest thing, but blogs like this help empower us!

    Hey girl! I’m Shema @Shemabema on instagram. My email is I came across your instagram page through my search for natural hair pages, then I saw your blog and I loved it. You have all types of things on your blog that are helpful. But one specific thing that helped me help my hair become even more stronger then ever is the question you answered for me. One day I asked you “Does deep conditioning under a dryer count as putting heat on your hair?” You answered “nope, some kind of heat element during your deep conditioning is a great for the hair bc it lifts the outer layer & allows for the conditioner to get deep into the hair”. This really saved my “no heat” journey because I didn't want to put heat on my hair. So during my process I was preventing the dryer as well. But once I had my question answered I was able to care for my hair even better and I thank you for that 🙂
    This is a picture after I finally flat ironed my hair and clipped my ends 🙂

    I completed all the requirements I couldn't do the twitter ones because I don’t have a twitter.

    My name is Lania, my IG is luh_knee_uh, and my email is From the inception of Curls Fo The Girls I have witnessed an array of stories through the spotlight monday feature. I started reading them during my transitioning journey and in all truth kept saying, “I can't wait to be ALL natural to have my turn as a spot light with all my pictures LOL” It inspired me to finally big chop after 2 years, as this was something I was very uncomfortable with, but the journeys of everyone featured showed that they each had some difficulty when coming to terms with their own hair. It made me excited to see what I was really working with ! I wanted to try the products that they used (product junkie…slightly…), try different hair styles being 100% natural, and really just learning about my curl pattern and what it has to offer. I look forward to the day when I am featured & hopefully help others on their natural hair journey!

    In a nutshell Curlsfothegirls has taught me 1 major thing and that is to LOVE MY HAIR! I have been using a combination of Shea Moisture products, kinky curly leave–in, and Deva Curl lightening Gel and it has taken me from flat hair to actual coils and I'm in love. If it wasn't for your blog I wouldn't have been daring enough or motivated to find what works for me! Feels good when someone says “I love your hair! what do you use?” I'm Jennifer… IG: _jenmarie KEEP UP YOUR AMAZING WORK! 🙂
