The decision to 'go natural' (wear your hair in its natural state, free of chemical straighteners) can be both empowering and daunting. What do I do with it? What products should I use? How do I style it? These are questions that plague and frustrate most women. Luckily, there's Island Curlz to help simplify things.

"Keeping it natural is more than just styling the hair; it is about caring, managing and appreciating your choice to be natural," notes Paula Pinnock, owner of Island Curlz. Pinnock understands and has experienced life with processed hair. She said she knows how important it is to embrace natural beauty.

She shared with Flair that she started the business in 2013 when she realised that she could not find the help she needed to maintain her natural hair. "Being natural is a lifestyle choice and we help clients with their desire to have the healthiest hair possible by caring, managing and offering the best advice," Pinnock said.

Pinnock explained that the way you treat your hair will determine how much it grows, how it looks and how healthy it is. "Due to the burdens that can come with maintaining natural hair, we provide clients with solutions and products that can prevent them from getting frustrated and resorting to processed hair," she said.

Island Curlz provides a variety of haircare products, including Mielle Organics, Shea Moisture and Sisterlocks, which are recommended by Pinnock. Having used the products herself, she said she knows how well they work. She said that people will experience different results based on their type of hair. So if your are ready for the journey you are not alone.
