Since going back natural, I have read that sometimes your hair can change in texture. Just as soon as I was getting used to being a cool 4C. I discovered that its actually changing into more of a 3C/4A/4C with a couple of annoying 2A pieces in there. Im not too certain on whether this has something to do with my change in regimen or my experiment with new products but I may as well embrace it!
Whats your hair type or types? And have you been experiencing any changes? Please share!
My Pretty Natural has launched a tshirt campaign on TeeSpring to raise funds for their all natural product line! Exciting, right!? I think so! Please go and show your support and purchase a tee. We have a certain quota to reach before the tshirts can be printed and shipped so we need your help in reaching that goal! Feel free to email email@example.com if you have questions!
Thank you in advance!!
I Rock MY Virgin Hair
The LOC Method has been proven over time to help your hair retain moisture. In my previous post, I said that once you Big Chop your hair can become very dry. The LOC Method is a sure-fire way to keep your tresses moisturized. I practice these steps in the morning when I wake up and repeat these steps before I go to bed.
The Lis for LIQUID. I keep a spray bottle filled with water. So Im ready to spritz at any time of the day. And when Im at work, everytime I use the restroom, I throw some water in my hair. Lol
The O is for OIL. I am a firm believer that my Ancient Secrets Hair Oil is whats giving me the tremendous growth on my hair. And until you’ve seen what my hair looked like before as in comparison to now- You cant tell me ANY different. The ingredients in this magical mixture include: Aloe Vera, T- Tree oil, Jojoba, Ginger, Organic Coconut, Egyptian Basil, Egyptian Fennel and Olive Oil. Each of these essential oils is broken down to prevent any irritation or burning to the skin.
The C is for Creme or Cream. This can mean many different things to many different people. Ive found what works for me and is Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding. Just a dollop of this on my hair will leave it feeling soft and lightweight all day! Not to mention it smells great!
Using these three things daily has made an impact on the health of my hair and the way it looks and feels. If practiced regularly, you can begin to see the difference too.
Any of my fellow naturalistas follow this method? What products do you use? Please share!
Last month I told yall that I would certainly be waiting and ready to catch me a VIP curlBOX Membership this month. Well! I just received that good ol’ faithful monthly email saying that Membership will be opening up THIS Saturday at 3pm EST! Anybody who has been waiting to get one- Dont miss your chance this weekend!
Just finished a debate on an Instagram post by a boutique owner – who shall remain nameless. She posted this picture:
And proceeded to say that she was happy that she won and her hair looks great! But natural hair is not for everybody. Hmmmmm.
Now you #teamnatural came out of kinks to respond to this- Including me! And I never get into meaningless and debates on any social network but I felt the need to voice my opinion on such an ignorant comment/opinion. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion whether it be good or bad. But to say that natural does not look good on everybody is to say that the skin color you were born with does not suit you- You were born that way!
She went on to explain that what she meant was: ‘Some people use being natural as an excuse to not keep up with their appearance. They roll out of bed and not do anything to their hair.’
Well some women with relaxed hair do the same thing also. So there’s no difference there. There are plenty of times when I roll out of bed and I do not have to do anything to my hair at all expect for take my scarf off. Yet my hair does not look unkept or messy.
There were other comments as well from people who were supportive of this post. Women were saying that ‘being natural is trend.’ I hear this a lot and I feel as though, my hair is not a trend. Trends are things that fade with time and come back again. My natural hair is here to stay. Its been with me since birth and it will be with me when I leave this earth. There is no way I would go back to a process that is damaging to my hair. I returned natural because I wanted to grow strong and healthy hair. And relaxing it every 6-8 weeks was not doing anything but damaging it.
I feel as though people have become so accustomed to how their hair is supposed to LOOK as opposed to how its supposed to BE. I do not knock anyone who has relaxed hair. Its just not for me anymore. But I do not take it too lightly if you try and knock mine either. Especially making rude and ignorant comments that have no substance.
My thing is keep the negative comments to yourself. If its not for you- Its not for you and that goes with anything. It hurts to see black women so divided on a subject where we should be banding together.
I apologize for my rant. Just had to vent.
Referring back to me last post-’Keep Me Away From the Scissors’- I have not been able to put them down yet!
Living by the mantra, ‘Its Just Hair’ I pretty much feel as though if I mess up, I can cut it all off and guess what!? It will grow back!! Im having way too much fun playing with different looks and Ive finally decided on a color!
Cant wait to reveal it!
So last night, I grabbed my scissors and started chopping away!! Just at the sides and bit off the top. I havent quite refined the style yet but I will show you pics when Im done. Anybody else having a hard time staying away from the scissors? Lol
