Side Swept Curls: A Tutorial

Now here’s a natural hairstyle any naturalista can get down with! This adorable do saves time because you only have to flat twist half of your head. Another bonus, as you’ll see in the video, is that it lasted 7 days!! A little Just Gel™ on the edges was all it took to maintain.

A big thanks to @MsDanti for her fabulous tutorial! Original Moxie products used are Shape Shifter™, Just Gel™ and Hair Bling™.

The Big Kahuna: Hair & Identity

Rachel - Age 18 months

Happy and free!

As a post-feminist, 21st Century gal, it pains me to admit how much of my life has been shaped by my hair.  In my case, it’s been a mixed blessing since my early self-loathing fueled an obsession with hair that ultimately blossomed into what is now Original Moxie Natural Hair Care.  That transformation was a long time (30+years) in the making and, for better or worse, played a massive role in shaping the person I am today.

Rachel - Age 14

Dreaming of straight hair…

While I’m sure that, deep down inside, there is still a 7-year old girl that just wants to fit in, the grown-up me loves my wild, one-of-a-kind mane.  After years of struggle, it has become a signifier of my identity – proclaiming both my sense of style and my sense of self.

One thing I’ve learned since founding Original Moxie is that I am not alone!  It turns out, the whole time I was hating my curls, all my friends were hating their straight hair.   My conclusion:  the quest for Hair Happiness is universal.  In the coming weeks and months, we’ll be exploring this topic in a series of interviews with various beauty and lifestyle bloggers.  Our bet is that you will recognize something of yourself in our journeys, insecurities and insights because, after all, it’s just hair!Rachel - Today

Nicole’s Before & After

Nicole’s Before & After

“Thank you for making this product. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Detangling Leave In Conditioner and Hair Bling!!!! As long as you make it, I will buy it. I don’t know which ingredient you put in that leave in conditioner that makes my hair soft and moisturized, but please don’t change a thing!!! I have the driest hair on earth and NOTHING has ever made my hair feel like this—even to the point where I can have second day hair and it’s still soft and shiny!<— which I have never had since transitioning for a year.

Since transitioning, I notice my hair does not respond the same to the products I used when I was relaxed, so it forced me to learn my hair all over again. Which meant more products to buy and test out and surfacing my inner product junkie. I am happily awaiting my full sized bottles in the mail after using the samples.”
