Pittsburgh Curly

A Curly Girl in da ‘Burgh


Most of you who end up here probably know me as rcc over at naturallycurly.com and have come here via that site.

The care and maintenance of naturally curly hair is one of my favorite hobbies. I have really enjoyed learning how much of a difference things like ingredients, weather, seasonal changes, and a host of other random quirks affect the way our hair curls. Whether or not we end  up with pretty waves, curls, and kinks, or, end up with a head-full of frizz can be a simple matter of one ingredient or a slight change in the humidity.

Keeping track of what works and what doesn’t can take some time for the novice and not-so-novice curly alike. I hoep that my experiences and my knowledge of how ingredients react with your curls will help you out on your curly journey too.

I don’t plan on keeping this as strictly a hair blog, so you may see random ramblings and local tidbits too. I love to talk to myself. 🙂

    Hi, I’m a fellow curly from Pittsburgh and was wondering who cut your hair. Are there any curl experts around the area?

    Hi Marni! I’ve been going to Eddy (pronounced like Eddie)at Salon Cercone in Shadyside since about 2005. I’ve never been unhappy with a cut from him. He has curl hair himself, and he understands how it is. He’s never left me with a pyramid head!


    You can see some reviews of him here.

    Hey! I love your blog, I am enjoying all the time I’m wasting here! 🙂 I just started blogging about my hair adventures, I’m a wavy-gone-CG experimenting with mod-CG. I’d appreciate advice, etc., it’s waves4thepoor.blogspot.com (Waves 4 the Poor only because I happen to be a poor student 😉

    Ooh, thank you! If there are any topics you’d like to see covered, let me know. Also, check out College Curly on my blogroll. She’s good at working with a college budget! It’s different than a younger student budget, but it may be helpful too.

    Wow! I feel like I have stepped into another world. My world for once! I’ve always just “dealt” with my hair in the past and after finding naturallycurly.com and from there your site, I feel like I want to run out and buy everything all at once and I want results NOW!:) Luckily, I am a bit more patient than that!

    I do have a question…. I have a very limited budget (your section on that is wonderful) and if you had to start – and I mean start at the beginning – are there things you would recommend as top priorities?

    Thank you Donna!

    I always consider a good conditioner to be top priority. Even on a budget, I seem to need that $10 conditioner.

    Some sort of gel/styler would be my next priority because something needs to help control the curls during the day. At least with gels, there is a wider selection of affordable, yet effective gels.
