Real Women Share Their Kinky-Curly Hair Stories

Maya Allen

We're not conditioned to love our curls; it just doesn't work like that. Especially when we live in a society that just recently widened its stereotypical scope of beauty. A scope that once shamed natural hair, in many unjustified cases labeling it "unkempt" and "unacceptable." Within the past few years, young girls have been suspended from school for wearing their natural texture and women have been fired from their jobs. Our work is far from done.

Thankfully, this does not take away from the true beauty that is curly hair in all of its kinky, textured, coiled glory. Instead, it builds within us even more resilience, confidence, and strength that comes with wearing your natural curls with an unshakable pride.

Learning to love and care for your curls is no easy feat. However, these 15 inspiring women who carry the most glorious crowns of curls, are living proof that it's worth it. Read on for their candid curly hair stories.
