    I've struggled against my curly hair for years. I used to blow dry it straight for smoothness and then pin curl it, but lately I've been trying to embrace my natural curls and let it be a little floofy.

    After washing I use some curl defining cream then put it in a messy low bun at the nape of my neck and let it dry overnight. When I take it out the next day, the crown of my head is smoothed and the bottom of my hair is all kinky and curly from the bun. At this point I just finger through to separate the curls and use a clampless curling iron to curl pieces around the front that aren't working the way I want. I also use the curling iron for some top layer pieces which tend to be straighter and need help. The curling iron gives the canopy definition, and the bottom layers that are naturally curled blend in nicely underneath. It's a much less fussy approach than what I used to do and tends to look softer.

    This works specifically for me and my wants, but everyone's curl pattern will be different and need a specific kind of attention. Though the half-natural, half-curling-iron approach (or half pin curls - whichever you prefer) might work for curly girls with a straighter canopy. You might not have to curl your whole head - just the pieces that need a little help.

    I bleached my hair and it messed up my curl pattern, I do notice my black hair has a more defined curl
