When did you start transitioning? Tell us about your journey - how has it impacted you?

I started transitioning around 2 months back. I had always yearned to have sleek, straight hair (blame the usual shampoo ads and society when I was growing up). After abusing my hair with straighteners and keratin treatments for several years I came across a curly hair blog which made me sit up and take notice. After searching on Google for curly girl friendly products, Bouclème caught my eye and my love for the products began.

What was your biggest hurdle while transitioning?

My biggest hurdle has definitely been the lack of time. My 2 year old daughter is extremely naughty and needs constant attention. Also, the years of heat and chemical abuse has really affected my waves. I get really frustrated on some wash days when the front parts just refuse to curl. 

What would be the best advice you’d give to someone that wants to start transitioning?

I would beg anyone who wants to start transitioning to give it TIME. Stop comparing. Everyone’s hair is different. Everyone’s hair is unique. 

Tell us about your passions and interests

I LOVE cooking. Both me and my husband are big foodies and whatever time we get after handling our little dynamite we just eat food, shop food and cook. I am also passionate about skin and haircare and I believe in investing in them. II have also been a blogger for a long time. 

"I have a greasy & itchy scalp which is prone to build-up so this shampoo has been my saviour. I love the soothing minty freshness & the gentle beads which are not too harsh. It leaves my scalp and hair feeling clean, fresh & light."

"I love a weekly deep treatment for my dry ends. The formula is rich & creamy yet not at all heavy, even for my very thin hair. My hair feels soft and supple, with frizz at a minimum. "

"This is one of my favourites! I have played around with a lot of curl creams & Bouclème is one of them that really gets the balance right. My waves feel soft, light, defined & never ever heavy!"

"I have very thin hair prone to a lot of frizz & always need a gel cast on my hair to let it dry properly. I love the Bouclème gel for being the perfect lightweight texture. I need just a small amount & squish into very wet hair. It’s easy to scrunch out as well. "
