It's been just over one year since my big chop! My hair has grown in length, thickness, and curl definition, and it's still one of the best decisions I've made in terms of healthy hair. Many people ask me how my hair grew so long/fast over the course of the year, so I...

Long time no blog! At least, not on back2curly.com. For those of you who aren't active on Instagram, or may have missed my posts due to the Instagram algorithm, I want to start a new blog series: Instagram Catch-Up! Click on any of the photos to see them on Instagram....

If you've been following my Instagram lately, you'll know I was selected as a Brand Ambassador for SheaMoisture!

SheaMoisture is a leading natural hair, beauty, skincare, and cosmetics brand that prides itself on creating safe and uncompromising beauty (free of harmful...

I can't believe it's April (it sure doesn't feel like it, especially when April showers in Boston somehow means snow!?) I wanted to share my March 2018 Ipsy GlamBag! For more on how Ipsy works, check my post from last month here!

What I got (L-R):

Where did February go? This year I wanted to try out the Ipsy GlamBag Beauty Subscription service, after not really enjoying the Sephora Play! Box. Judging from the first two bags of 2018, Ipsy is much more my style and definitely gives you a great value! When you sign...

Perhaps it's too late to still be reflecting on 2017, but it was such an amazing year! When I saw that Spotify made customized playlists of everyone's individual Top Songs of 2017, I was so excited. When I listen to it, it's like an insight into all the moments of the...

I picked up the Shea Moisture Jojoba Oil and Ucuuba Butter No-Rinse Foam Cleanser and Odor Neutralizing Mist with Carrot Seed Oil to try on my crochet braids. When I shared photos of the products on my Instastory, so many people wanted to see a review! I posted a quick...

This weekend, I attended a product swap party curly hair event hosted by @actually_ashly! It was so well organized and fun! We got to:

meet other Boston Naturals...

...swap products....

...share curl tips...

...get hair advice from Sharita from @theloftmedford...

This weekend, I got my very first protective style installed! I had a super fun weekend at my sister's house, and she put crochet box braids in for me! 

She used the "single-braid method" to crochet the hair into mine. First, she braided my own hair into around 50+ sing...

Now that the holiday season is over, many of you may be travelling from vacation or trips home. I just arrived back in Boston after spending the winter break at home with my friends and family in Hong Kong. I was so excited to see everyone again, but wasn't very thrill...

Hi! I'm Shayla. After 8+ years of chemically straightening my hair, I decided to transition back to my naturally curly hair! I started an Instagram to track and share my journey. Embracing natural hair is not just about hair; it's about self acceptance, redefining your standard of beauty, and celebrating your culture(s) unapologetically in a world where it is not always treated with equal respect. Here, I'm sharing more in depth articles and reviews about hair, makeup & skincare, lifestyle, music, and cultural identity. 

🇺🇸  🇲🇽  🇭🇰 I hope you enjoy!
