Curly hair is finally gaining the recognition it deserves. Over the years, we’ve been conditioned to believe that straight hair is the ‘ideal’ standard of beauty. The many shampoo ads that we see on TV is proof of it. But, things are changing. With social media booming like never before, people with curly hair are sharing their curl stories. Slowly but effectively, the representation of curly hair is gaining momentum. Even in Kerala. There are many curly hair Malayali enthusiasts who are embracing their curls and encouraging others to do the same.
People with curly hair know what it takes to look after their curls. Like any other person, they too have their good and bad hair days. Turns out, there’s a whole different treatment needed to look after curly hair. Here’s a list of curly hair Malayali enthusiasts you should follow to fall in love with curly locks.
Anjana, like every other curly-haired girl, detested her hair. She had the habit of brushing her curls, hoping for a miracle but to no avail. A few years ago when curly hair started to trend, she researched the A-Zs of curly haircare. A bunch of experiments later, she finally found the love she was searching for in her curls. Eventually, she knew she had to spread the curl love. Her mission is to make “curly-haired beauties fall in love with [their] curly hair.”
