From the time I was a toddler, I’ve had piles of curly ringlets on my head. As my hair grew, the curls would cascade down my back like a chocolate brown waterfall. However, I used to despise my hair because it was different from everyone else’s. While all of the girls in my elementary school classes had straight hair, mine was really curly. When I got to middle school up to sophomore year, I put intense amounts of heat on my locks. I used to straighten and curl my hair almost every day until my strands were fried into awkward waves. After putting my hot tools on the side for two years, my hair has sprung back into its natural mermaid curls. One product that helps to keep my ringlets in tact is the Pantene Classic Clean 2 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioner. I’ve been using this consistently for a while and it helps my hair to keep its bounce and texture without being weighed down!
