As soon as I entered GBS Pinecrest last Saturday, the man at the counter already knew — “They’re all back there,” he said with an inviting smile. Like honeybees flocking to their queen, Miami’s curly girls were headed to meet Lorraine Massey, author of Curly Girl, innovator of the “Curly Cut,” and co-owner of DevaCurl and New York’s Devachan Salon.

Massey and her Devacurl crew were visiting South Florida GBS salons, educating salon professionals (including my beloved Larramy), and meeting the masses to spread the curly hair gospel. The salon was packed, and Massey was holding court in a corner, surrounded by rapt curly haired women of a variety of textures. Their baskets were laden with products and books. One customer proudly brandished the last DevaSun diffusing hair dryer in the store.

Suddenly I came face to face with Lorraine herself. Her curls are on point — a gorgeous angel’s mane of blond spirals. “I love your hair!” she squealed when she met me, and it’s like — cue Handel’s Messiah. “I love YOUR hair!” I squealed right back. We hit it off right away. We chatted briefly about the terrible trend of curly-to-straight makeovers on television, and she briefly consulted me about curls and hair color — blond highlights can make curls immediately apparent, but can also make your hair super dry. Before too long, she was whisked away by another crowd of women, eager to ask her detailed questions about how to cut, cleanse, and style their hair. The salon space was overcrowded, but the energy was so empowering and positive.

The room was mostly filled with Caucasian curly girls, there was one other brown skinned bella in the room and she kept making eye contact with me in the mirror as she got her hair styled into perfectly stretched ringlets. When her hair was done, she approached me and we chatted about Afrobella. She was familiar with my site, and is a regular at Nappturality, so we had quite a bit to chat about. Lorraine flitted around the room, joining conversations, admiring hairstyles in progress — an adorable little girl no more than six was among the throng, and the stylist trimming her hair was amazingly attentive to the shape and direction of every curl. “She’s going to do you next,” a Devacurl specialist informed me.

I kept coming up with questions for Lorraine based on my own experiences — before my haircut I’d been having trouble detangling my hair. My beloved Denman brush wasn’t cutting it lately — I noticed that it was making my curl pattern frizzy and disrupted, leaving me with a big poofy clown wig instead of coily spirals like I wanted. From the minute I said “Denman brush,” Lorraine’s eyelids fluttered shut like she’d caught the vapors. “Why would you do that? Then your hair has to find its curl pattern again. That’s not detangling your hair gently or slowly or with respect.”

I told her that Denman brushes are pretty popular among curly haired women of color of late — I’ve been reading lots of talk about Denman brushes everywhere from Nappturality to Honey Brown Sugar to Biracial Hair, and I’ve heard from quite a few bellas who swear it’s changed their entire hair care routine. Despite the brushes’ popularity, Lorraine just says NO to brushing, period, and discouraged me from using the Denman in no uncertain terms. I asked her what she would do, if she needed to detangle in a hurry. “I would rather wait a few days until I have the time to properly cleanse and style my hair,” she declared. I explained that I only used the Denman in the shower, when my hair was completely saturated with conditioner. “But your hair is very weak when it’s wet. Brushing the hair when wet makes it more likely to break,” she explained as she was ushered away to chat with another group of patrons.

Then it was my turn in the chair, with Terri as my DevaCurl specialist. I’ll say this — the lady takes her time and gets it right. “What can I say? I’m a perfectionist,” she explained as she compared the length of the curls on either side of my temples. Terri’s cut was careful and precise, specifically trimmed to fall perfectly into shape. I asked for volume and length, and Terri tapered the haircut to shape my face while keeping the back of my hair as long as I wanted it to be.

Terri’s cut was less interactive than Larramy’s; no bending over upside down with her. At the end of my haircut — which was done dry without any products whatsoever because of time constraints — I wasn’t entirely convinced of the cuteness of my new do. All of my grown-out highlights had been chopped off, leaving me with a close-cropped head of dark coils that, sans product, looked hella dry. Terri even admitted that she cut off more than she meant to.

One day and an overnight Ojon treatment later, and voila. That’s the photo you see above, and I detangled with a wide tooth comb instead of the Denman, as Lorraine advised me to do. For styling products I’ve been using Miss Jessie’s Curly Meringue, a wicked mix my homegirl mixed up for me — based on the bella-beloved MoeShealoe that everyone on Nappturality and Fokti is buzzing about (LOVE IT!), and DevaCurl Set Me Up to scrunch my spirals into shape.

I’ve been swimming in compliments ever since the haircut, and with the colored tips of my hair gone, it feels healthier and looks more moist than ever before. Very happy with it so far, and what I like about the curl cut is, as it grows out it still maintains a shape.

I plan on interviewing Lorraine soon, and I’d love to ask her some questions from you bellas!

What do you think of the cut? And what would you like me to ask her?

Bella, you look cute girl.That fabu hair cut makes you look bright,refreshed,and younger.I have a question for Miss Lorrain ,and that is "Would you please HELP"? I have never had my hair cut into a style ,and I want to so bad,but I don't know where to go.The products that I use get me through the day ,but I want my hair to look perfect.I dream of having perfect ringlets,twist,and just hair period so please tell me what to do and where to go in Maryland.Oh! yeah ,and my hair draws up like Foxy Cleopatra in the Austin Powers movie.

Wow, Bella!!! Wonderful! Absolutely wonderful! To Mrs. Mckinzie: I've gone twice now to Noire Salon in Silver Spring. She's cornrowed my hair and trims with scissors (yay!) and not clippers. She also does locks and color. She's really nice and my rows did NOT hurt one bit. She's very attentive. So far as detailed cuts like Bella got, I don't know. You're lucky if your hair is like Foxy husband calls me Q-tip (the implement, not the rapper) sometimes if he can't see over my hair (out of jest, of course).

I love big hair too, MarriedToIt... this cut took me some getting used to, I'll tell ya. But I've gotten nothing but positive feedback from my friends and coworkers, and my hair actually feels and looks healthier -- my ends were crispier than I'd realized! I'm excited now moreso than before to really take care of it -- I'm taking some hair vitamins for a month so that will be a review to look forward to. I want to see if they really make a difference in terms of growth.

Thanks for the Silver Spring suggestion; I live in MD. I have been dying to get my hair cut, but I want to make sure I go to the right person. I usually trim the ends myself. I too have fried hair from highlights, but they are a little to high up for me to cut all off. I am so afraid to cut too much length off but I noticed how much healthier your hair looks in the before and after, so maybe I will get the nerve...

You look beautiful. Honestly, I love your hair either way. I think it's the smile. But I do like the tighter curl pattern with your new cut. I tell you, I'm getting more and more courage to come on out of my twists. And I owe it all to you. CONGRATS on getting the Best Writing nom that you wanted...and your other nom. WELL deserved ;)
tlove says:
August 18, 2008, 7:37 am hair is beautiful! I just went natural (again!) after perming for 2 years. The reason I would go back to a perm is because I didn't have the resources to keep up my natural hair. But luckily, thanks to your website and many others I have the tools to have big, beautiful curls. Anyway, since Miss Jessie now has travel/trail sizes, I got the Curly Meringue and Quick Curls. Both made may curls very defined but dried out my hair like the Sahara. Any pointers? Am I using too much? Could you ask Lorraine what if any color she suggests for curly girls? My hair is naturally dark brown, but I have some arburn/blond highlights to brighten up my face.

Lovely pics Bella! I have been reading on Fotki and Naturally Curly about Denman brushes and how life-changing they are so I bought one........and I hated it! I felt like it was pulling my hair too much and would result in more breakage. I'm going to stick to my wide-tooth shower comb. Lol @ "like she caught the vapors".

August 18, 2008, 9:43 am
Bella, I LOVE your hair! Glad to hear you had a good experience. And grows back, so you'll be back to the big pouf in no time. I was a Denman fan back in the day but gave it up for the Goody Style Therapy brush instead. Even that I use only occasionally, can overdo the job a little. My new approach is to detangle with the biggest combs I have -- the ones at the ends of my arms ;) -- followed by the shower comb, followed by progressively smaller-toothed combs. Here's a question for Lorraine: What's her approach when confronting a head that has a combination of different textures? In my case I go with what most benefits the majority texture on my head (which happens to be CNapp, thick but fine) and the other textures will have to just catch as catch can. I've heard of people doing x to one side of their head, y to the other, and spending tons of time.

Love your cut!!! Congrats on the Nomination!!! I'm looking for a good person to cut my hair. In the DC area it seems that as soon as you say natural hair you're paying $150 for a cut. And I'm never that impressed with the results Bella what do you think is a fair amount to spend for a natural haircut? P.S. The Denman brush didn't work for me. Even when I had the shower running through my hair it hurt too much. Anything that hurts me is not good haircare.

Afro Bella, your hair is super cute. @tlove, You are right you just might be using to much of the product. I think it's best when you add a small amount to your hair in sections. Did you wash your hair really while before applying the product? Some of Miss Jessie's products don't mix while with other products.
TJ says:

I love reading your natural hair post. So much information. Love the cut! Anyhow, I never use a brush on my hair only a wide tooth comb and comb my hair out gently in the shower. In the past I have gone to several different salons to get my hair cut; they all had different ways of cutting my hair and I didn't like any of the cuts. What is the right way to cut natural hair? How do you know if someone is doing a good job? Thanks!!!!!

I love the new cut!!!! I might have to take that pic in. I haven't had a cut since january and i'm on the fence in terms of cutting it or letting it grow out a bit. I never, ever use a brush on my hair. Don't even own a brush anymore. I wash with conditioner and comb it through with a wide tooth comb. I think the biggest mistake people make is their combing technique. You cannot start coming from the roots. You'll only end up with a huge knot at the ends. Take your time, section it out, and comb from the ends, up. It doesn't take longer and you end up with perfect bouncy curls. The MoeShealoe looks really thick. Also, I didn't see any measurements. Can you please write more about it later?
The Infamous T. Hobbs says:
August 18, 2008, 3:58 pm
Oh, and forgive the delay, but your hair looks really good, girl! But if it FEELS better to you, then that's what's important. Ive been using my denman for about a month now, and detangle once a week. It's made a difference. I'm have some 3b, a little bit of 4a, but mostly 3c, and it's the only detangling technique that truly, TRULY, works, and in about 30 minutes at the most. So, I think to each her own. I love it and hardly ever use my wide-tooth comb anymore. And it really defines and clumps my spirals, albeit with some shrinkage. But you definitely look fly, lady! And I'm glad your experience was a positive one. Take care! T. Hobbs

It is a toss up! Your hair in the after shot looks SO healthy and shiney. It is hard to see the details of your new cut so I think I like the actual cut of the first one...the length & how some spirals are poking out. re: detangling... I have only used a wide tooth comb in the shower right after conditiong...don't bother combing it when its dry because it causes too much frizz. Just recently I got my firt haircut from a devacurl stylist and she actually recommended no combing at all...just fingercombing in the shower w/ conditioner. I was like girl please w/ my super thick 4c hair but I swear it works. I can tell a difference in my curl pattern. Sometimes I'd use the comb because I just new I wasn't getting out my tangles, but it'd be the same... More importantly, congrat's on the nominations!

Thanks Bella for this insightful article. I rushed out to buy the Denman brush after reading it about it here and other sites, including an interview with Tracee Ellis Ross, but I was on the fence after using it as it didn't affect my hair like all the other fans spoke about. I'm thankful to hear that I'm not alone, which is always the case whenever I come to this site :) I clicked on the link for the MoeShea, but it doesn't have any measurements listed for the ingredients. Do you have any idea???? I would love to make this up.

For all those asking about the moeshealoe, I made some recently. The thing is, mix it until it looks like whipped icing. And only a little aloe at the end. If you click on the individual pictures there are a few measurements listed in the captions. I don't have exact measurements (maybe Moe will see all this and comment...) but I will certainly vouch for its goodness!

Marilyn says:
August 20, 2008, 12:00 am
See this right here: "Terri even admitted that she cut off more than she meant to." Would have pissed me off. This is why I dust my own ends, because I want to maintain length. I must say that the cut does look fabulous on you. :-D I tried using the Denman brush when I first heard about it years ago, but my coils ALWAYS looked frizzy and just "off". Wide tooth comb works just fine. One day I'll get the SET ME UP pomade, but not today.

Hey Afrobella! Your hair looks beautiful! I was wondering what advice you or Lorraine might have for a bella who's just starting to grow out her hair. I got the BC in July, and the curl pattern is finally settling, and I see a few individual curls setting themselves aprt for the rest of the fro, but I was wondering if either of you have any advice on how to help the rest of my hair individualize like those few? Thanks a lot!

Well you're super cute either way but I am really feeling the darker color on you. I can't give up my Denman though! My hair just was not getting detangled properly with just a wide tooth comb. I always had little "dreads" forming at my nape and nappy knot balls forming at my ends. I never detangle when I'm in a rush though. Especially now that it's longer, I have to get out of the shower and detangle in sections. I only detangle once, maybe twice a week.

I mention them because their site shows that they will be launching in the usa soon. here is a link to the product range I have recently bought their 30 second curl spray, curl activator and the relaxing cream (its not a chemical). they smell nice. hair is in braids at the mo so not yet tried.

I have been checking these natural site out for about 6 months. I have very fine hair that is very curly/wavy in front, bushy and cottony at the crown and very soft and tightly curled on the sides and in back. To make matters worse my hair is very light (strawberry blonde) which makes it look dry all the time. I had relaxed hair to the middle of my back all my life however it seemed to be getting finer and finer the older I got and I couldn't do anything with it because it was just straight. So, I decided to texturize it. That was a horrible mistake because some parts were great and others went bone straight. Now that I am natural and my hair has grown out to the point where I have a nice sized 'fro I wanted to know how to control the frizzy parts. Maybe there is no way to do that but I wanted to check. When I use curl activators or leave in conditioners like Cantu Sheabutter my curls look cute for about half the day then they go right back to being bushy. Even on days when the curls are cute the whole day watch out for the second day because it's a hot mess. I have bought just about any product you can name. I have finally realized that using a nopoo product does really make a difference. I use devacurl nopoo and conditioner. But the angell makes my hair feel dusty afterwards because I have to use so much. So, if there is anyone out there that can tell help me with advise I am all ears. I live in Maryland and I plan to make a trip to DC to Salon Revive to see Yodit as soon as possible. If you live in the MD/DC area and know of a good curly/natural salon please recommend it. I am not one for locks or braids (although I think they look nice) but I need someone who can make my natural hair look pretty and not dry and bushy. If they tell that's it then I will learn to live with it but I am hoping I can look as beautiful as you do in the picture. Sorry to ramble but this is an SOS for some help! Thanks to anyone who took the time to read this and provide assitance.

Hi afrobella! i officially just got addicted to your site about 2 hours ago and i'm still on it. LOL. first off, that "after" pic looks absolutely AMAZING! it's crazy what a good cut can do for your curls! makes me want to go out and get my hair cut too. secondly, i'm glad i'm not the only one who was not a fan of the denman brush. i think it makes my hair into a big, poufy mess so i can see why Lorraine says it disrupts the curl pattern. i like my curls to be defined waves and ringlets (i have so many textures so i have both wavy curls and tight ringlets throughout my hair). and the brush just makes all the curls into a straight pouf! i don't see how people are getting MORE curl definition with this brush. anyways, i'm glad i stumbled upon this blog. love it!

I gave up brushing exactly ll months ago and haven't looked back. I totally agree with Lorraine, brushing only makes the hair more frizzy and it messes up the natural curl pattern of the hair. My advice, detangle the hair with your fingers while in the shower. You should see improved texture, more curl definition, and less breakage in know time. It has worked wonders for my hair. Good Luck! Your hair looks great.

Hey Bella, your hair is great. I had the pleasure of going to Devachan in NYC and it was great, but in the end, I am not liking to cutting on dry hair as my hair is way to uneven now with their cut. Also I was never able to replicate anything at home even using their products. I do understand how it is to have curly hair but to go through this experience again it will not happen. I am glad you had a nice time with yours.

Help. I came to Fl to see my parents and forgot to bring my Devachan Conditioner. Anyone know where I can get it (I'm in Boynton Beach). Thanks.

I had a horrible experience with this salon! WHAT I ASKED FOR: I went for a haircut. I asked for LONG side swept bangs, (which I had before in the past and looked great at another salon). I asked for only 2 inches off. Which should have been mid-back. I told Nevila I like my hair soft and long. WHAT I GOT: The stylist parted my hair in the middle & gave me a mullet. Instead it is now shoulder length. That is about 5 inches off! During the whole process she was up-selling the hair-care products and obviously did not listen to my needs and wants. I left the salon upset. I started crying. Nevila knew I did not like the cut or style. I said it looked like a crispy and crunchy and that it looks like a Jerry curl. I said it is too short. She said I would eventually like it. No remedy was offered. NEXT DAY: I called the day after (March 13, 2013 at approximately 10 am) and said I was unhappy and to take me off their mailing list. Then they said they wanted me to come in to fix it. I said, “The stylist cut off enough. She cut off too much. How could that be fixed?” Every morning I cry before work because I don’t know what to do to hide my hair. A lot of bobby pins and a bun? No amount of washing can fix this. The hair products she used made my hair crispy, crunchy. The texture of my hair is no longer soft & I’m worried she put something permanent in my hair. I did not ask for anything permanent. How many biotin pills can I take to make my hair grow longer? The only remedy is to wait it out. I am so sad. I was given a mullet. I regret going to the Devachan salon because all they do is talk about their products during the cut, which is what the true sale is. It is not making your clients/customers happy, it is about selling your hair care products that make your hair texture very crunchy. I can’t do anything with it. I can’t stop crying. I would like a refund. I spent $80 on humiliation.

You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be really something which I feel I might never understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely wide for me. I am taking a look forward to your next submit, I¡¦ll try to get the grasp of it!

Contrary to what most videos portray that smoking cigarettes could boost your intercourse existence, cigarette smoking essentially deprives it. The character of Christian Grey is somewhere between 65 and 80, and he has a personality that is two parts 'Hugh Hefner' and one part 'Tom Freston. It's going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better.
