Being a natural has been such an exciting journey for me!
It has now been 3 years and I can’t believe how much this process has affected my life.
To be honest I can sometime be super lazy when it comes to styling all this kinkinest on top of my head , so I'll wear a wig or get my hair braided.
Being natural has allowed me to express myself and learn how to become even more confident as a young African American women .
Below are a few tips that has helped me during my natural hair journey.
Get yourself a vent brush honey !!!
Purchase lots of conditioner
Keep heat out of your hair . Heat is not your friend for this journey.
Lots of people do BIG CHOPS but you my friend do not have to do a big chop to start the process.
Get your hair trimmed every 3-6 months (me personallyI usually wait to the growing moon to trim my ends ).
Coconut oil is EVERYTHING .
Use a bonnet or scarf that is silky to protect your hair at night .
Do not color your hair if you are not going to take EXTRA care of it.
YOU TUBE STYLES & TRY WIGS
I’ve been through lots of different hair products and I'm still searching for more .
Don't get caught in the hype of purchasing name brand products I've bought some off brand hair products that have worked better than the big name brand ones.
Lastly , be patient with your hair , when comes to natural hair I've learned that consistency is key !!! Keep trying & you'll eventully see the improvement you want to see with your hair.
