Hi, there! I'm Mónica, the creator and founder of Curly Hair Lounge and I can't wait to hear your story. But in the meantime here's mine:
I am a passionate natural hair writer OBSESSED with de-mystifying curly hair care. I'm also an avid cinema goer, with two kids (a couple) and serious tea addiction! I believe naturally curly girls can't afford to waste any more time with hair care practices that damage their hair, it all starts with a better understanding of their hair needs and a good hair regimen.
I started my curly hair journey back in 2013 shortly after bumping into a YouTube video about curly hair. At the time I was struggling with limp, stringy hair and breakage. My scalp was itchy and flaky and I was completely frustrated with my hair relaxed. I just wanted my hair to stop breaking and looking so unhealthy. Heck, I didn't even know I could stop relaxing my hair.
But the desire to bring my hair back to health soon became a passion for my curly hair.
Between this new 'obsession' and my commitment to know as much as I could about curly hair, my hair journey took off. I devised a hair regimen that in 3 years allowed me to grow the nearly the equivalent of 4 years of hair growth.
In the meantime, I created this blog to share clear and actionable information that would provide guidance to all curly hair newbies.
As the blog, its reach and its audience grew I continued creating content to help support my audience such as my library of Free resources, a Free email course (Boost Your Hair Moisture), a Hair Journal, the Curly Hair Adventure Facebook group and the Shed & Rescue coaching call.
As I continue to expand and deepen my knowledge on curly hair I am committed to sharing my knowledge and strategies to help others achieve the same success I have.
