Meet Lucy! Postgraduate archaeology student from Edinburgh. Lucy takes us through her battle with self-love and acceptance to loving every inch of herself and her curls. 

The Journey

What inspired you to return natural?

I’ve lived in Edinburgh all my life and am now a postgraduate archaeology student at the University of Edinburgh. I began embracing my curls in March 2020 to give me something to focus on after loosing my job and being unable to continue pole dance classes over the following months. After experiencing mental health issues I’ve made it my mission to love myself as I am and my hair journey has truly helped with that. I feel the most authentic version of myself when I show my natural hair to the world! No more hiding who I am!

What were the challenges (if any) along the way of your healthy hair journey?

Distributing products through my hair! I have so many funny pictures of the back of my head that make me smile whenever I look back on them! (Tip: use a brush!)

What is your number 1 curl tip?

Invest in good curl products! Your hair and wallet will thank you! I never truly noticed a difference until I focused on natural ingredients! Good ingredients mean that a little goes a long way and your products will last a long time!

Discovering Flora & Curl

What made you buy Flora & Curl products? How did you hear about us?

I first discovered Flora & Curl on Instagram at the start of my journey. I got the Jasmine Oasis Floral Hydration Hair Mist for Christmas and I’ve been in love Ever since!

How did you see your hair change after using Flora & Curl products?

My hair is more voluminous and shiny! I can really see the health of my hair improving!

Which Flora & Curl product is your favourite and why?

Definitely the Sweet Hibiscus Curl Volumizing Foam! It’s my holy grail product! So much volume whilst maintaining definition!

What is your current Flora & Curl haircare routine?

Currently I use the Sweet Hibiscus Curl Volumizing Foam EVERY DAY! But I love to spritz some of the Jasmine Oasis Floral Hydration Hair Mist for a quick refresh and I’m experimenting with the full product line!

What sets Flora & Curl apart from other brands/products on the market?

The scent! Gorgeous and delicate!! It reminds me of summer even in the midst of winter!
