My name is Shamilla Dewi and I am the founder and creator of Curlygirlmovement.
I started this movement in 2014. As a little girl I struggled a lot with my curly hair. To me it was just a big mystery: What was I suppose to do with this hair?!
For years I would straighten out my curls. This was easier and in my mind I blended in more with straight hair than I did with curls. After years of using excessive heat on my hair I had no other choice but to do a big chop. I started doing a lot of research about curly hair and I created this platform called Curlygirlmovement. Here I would share all my knowledge about curly hair with other girls. My goal was to inspire other girls to embrace their natural curly hair as well.
