This post is brought to you by our friends at Gurl.

When I stopped straightening my hair nearly four years ago, I had to totally overhaul my hair routine. I had a slew of new products to buy, new ways to protect my hair and a ton of quality time to spend reintroducing myself to my natural hair texture.
