I'm Sam and I'm addicted to good hair days.
As a kid, I had puffy, dry, frizzy hair that I wore in a ponytail all the time to avoid being teased by the other kids. On days when I let it out, I was called "Hagrid" or asked if I stuck my finger in a light socket. Kids are mean, and I hated my hair.
I remember my dad applying a chemical relaxer to my hair when I was 8 or 9 years old. For the first time I loved my hair and how shiny and smooth it was! But that didn't last long, and I certainly didn't know then what kind of damage I was doing to my curls in an effort to just. stop. hating. my hair.
When I discovered the Curly Girl Method and the underlying message to love your hair just as it is, I was amazed at some of the transformations I saw online. Could my hair really look like that?
It took about two years of experimenting, transitioning, and finally understanding what my hair really needed to get to the point of appreciating the beautiful curls that I have now (most days... well-hydrated and cared for curls can still be unruly sometimes!). I started by dabbling in the Method, practicing some of the techniques other people used to get the best out of their curls, and trying all sorts of different products. Many of us don't make this change overnight, and that's perfectly okay.
That's where Curl Warehouse comes in. I wanted to make it easier for Canadian curlies to find hair products without heavy customs fees or extortionate cross-border shipping costs. We sell all sorts of curly hair products and accessories, many of which are considered Curly Girl Method approved because they do not contain sulfates, drying alcohols, non-water-soluble silicones or waxes, or petroleum products.
