Curl Care Questions: What is Moisture?

By The Curl Boutique / September 24, 2021 / 0 Comments

Y’all – listen up! Moisture is literally just water. That’s right, any form of water is hydrating and, if we’re being real (we are), it’s the only truly natural source of hydration that will replenish your hair and body. For curlies, the hydration that affects us most is the dew point. Surprise! Can you believe it’s not the humidity? Truth is, dew point and humidity are in fact connected, but let’s explore the nitty gritty of getting you and your curls juicy and moisturized, living your best life.

Hair Growth Cycles and Your Curls

By The Curl Boutique / May 3, 2021 / 0 Comments

“How can I grow my hair faster?” Most of us have experienced a haircut taken too short followed by the immediate desire to grow it out; as curlies, we’ve been there, too! In an effort to salvage our curls, we exhaust our Google search and rely on odd “quick fixes” from Youtube to get our locks to “grow faster.” We’ve seen hair growth remedies ranging from DIY cocktail masks with eggs and other *interesting* foods, to scalp massages with Monistat, (we wish we were kidding!).

Concerning the History of Hair Discrimination

By The Curl Boutique / July 27, 2020 / 0 Comments

We want to begin this post by addressing something important: we are two white women writing this blog. This is not our history and these are not our stories. We are not here to take space, but rather, to shine light on the discrimination that has relentlessly afflicted and harmed BIPOC communities. While we can – to an extent – relate and empathize with the experience of having curly hair, we will never truly be able to comprehend or feel the oppression that people of color with curly hair have.

An Open Letter of Apology to All Curly Hair Clients we Have Unintentionally Betrayed.

By The Curl Boutique / February 29, 2020 / 0 Comments

Curlfriends, we’re sorry. We’re so sorry. We’re your hairstylists, your confidants, your beauty mentors, your friends. We know you. You’ve sat in our chairs throughout your life. You see us in winter, spring, summer, and fall, in the sunshine, snowstorms, and everything in between (#MAINE). You’ve trusted us during your highs: curl-discoveries, curl journeys, new relationships, enduring relationships, curl-friendships, engagements, newfound independence, pregnancies, weddings, promotions, career-changes, relocations, vacations, holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, confidence building, milestones, and achievements. You’ve sought us out in life’s many hardships, and we’ve been honored to walk alongside you through various challenges. We know how you like your coffee. We can part your hair perfectly. We’ve scrubbed your scalp. And we must admit, though never intentionally, we’ve lied to you. We’ve misled you. We’ve brought you down a path that was not the best for you or your curls.
