Rolene Strauss, who was crowned Miss World in 2014, says it took her some time before she was able to embrace her curly hair and that it was one of the things that made her struggle with self-confidence.

The beauty queen says her curly hair was one of the things society measured her by and that she had to find ways to say no to the cruel judge called “Perfect”.

Here are five times Rolene Strauss embraced her curly hair and looked flawless and elegant while doing so:

All-natural Rolene

At the baby shower for her second son, Strauss wore her natural curls pulled up and accentuated it with a white flower that completed the look perfectly.

Curly hair, don’t care

Strauss has been on a curly hair journey for quite some time and naturally, people started noticing, asking for tips and ideas when it comes to styling their hair. She later shared a proper styling tutorial, specifically for women with curly hair.

She says: “I was often teased about my ‘kroeskop’ [frizzy head] and I despised my curly hair. I wanted to blow dry and straighten them since I was six years old!”

If you also struggle with frizzy hair, OGX® Damage Remedy + Coconut Miracle Oil Hair Mask is an ultra-rich blend with coconut oil, vanilla bean extract and essence of tiare. It boasts an extra-nourishing blend that helps calm frizz and tame flyaways, leaving hair with a silky soft bounce and shine.
