For so long, I have given so much power to my hair. I grew up believing that the length of your hair was a gauge for just how beautiful you were. The longer your silky pressed and permed tresses, the more attention you received. With my patchy, knotty crown and round, soft body I felt invisible for a long while. I believed that I never quite compared to the girls with loose curls; I actually convinced myself that I was dull.
Life as a lawyer has been an interesting adventure. I wanted to become a lawyer to promote liberty, empowerment, and justice. And I’m beyond proud how far I’ve come. However, throughout this journey I’ve had to overcome an inferiority complex based off, of all things, my hair.
Tis the season for delicious food, sparkly objects, and PRESENTS. Guys I really, really love presents. I love buying them. I love giving them. I love wrapping them (I’m a monster when it comes to unwrapping them). But for some, the task of giving the perfect gift can be quite daunting. Which is why we’ve put together a guide of amazing beauty gifts. Check out these 20 treats – perfect for anyone in your life who is obsessed with hair care, skin care, fragrance, or cosmetics. #beautyjunkiesunite
It’s December 1st, that means it’s the holidays. Halloween happened, Thanksgiving happened, you can’t yell at me. Holiday mode is ACTIVATED.
Break out the lights, the inflatable lawn ornaments (you love them and you KNOW it), and the pretty wrapping paper.
What’s better than ribbon in 1,000 colors and learning how to tie bows on YouTube? Countdown calendars. You know those things where someone punches out a tiny door and reveals a daily surprise – usually candy. You know what I’m talking about. You fought your sibling over who got to open it each morning.
Well, we like them so much that we’re hosting a digital holiday calendar right here on the blog. It’s like a Deva-holiday party that never ends. Okay it ends after 31 days but we can all pretend.
What kind of surprises are in store over these glorious weeks?
We’ve got giveaways. We’ve got deals. We’ve got special guest bloggers. We’ve got product cocktails. We’ve got SO MANY THINGS.
Be sure to keep up with curly Joneses and check back here every day for a new treat.
Yeah, us too. Now through the end of the year we’re giving you two free minis on any order over $50. They’re adorable. You’re welcome.
Binge Watch With Us!
Let’s be honest, it’s winter, so it’s cold, and it’s wet, and no one in their right mind wants to be outside right now. So, we’ve put together a playlist of some of our favorite curly hair routines from all over the net. Consider it your movie marathon for all things curls.
We know you all have some Deva goodies on your holiday shopping lists (and let’s be honest, they’re for you, not your friend). Well, we want to make someone’s dreams come true. From now until Wednesday post a photo on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram using #MyDevaCurlWish and let us know the top 3 DevaCurl products you would wish for. You just might find you’ve got a fairy curl mother after all.
There’s nothing I, no I wouldn’t do (I wouldn’t do) just to get up next to you. You know it’s true – you’re dying for a DevaTowel or Scarf. Well from now until December 12th if you spend $100 you get one free. Plus, you also get those two free minis. Yesssssssss. FYI There’s a code required. Click here.

Wanna win a holiday kit?
Of course you do! Now’s your chance. The beautiful TyLauren is giving away a holiday kit to one lucky winner now on her Instagram!
I said brrrrr!
It’s freaking cold outside. And nobody is happy about it – including your hair.
Of course you do. Look no further than coconuts, coconut oil is a total powerhouse (that’s why we put it in SuperCream). But if you’re not into oils you can also try coconut milk, it’s easier for your hair to absorb.
The holidays are almost here, and we are still celebrating! This time with Carrie, of CurlyCraftyMom. She’s giving you ANOTHER chance to win a Celebrate Curly Holiday Kit. Head to her Instagram now for more details!
