Natural Hair|Returning to Natural


There is not a day that goes by that some one does not ask me something about my hair. I do not have any difficulty sharing as I love to help others.   I am very pleased with the progress that may have has had over these past 2 .5 years. According to my stylist, my hair is doing very well.

One of the main questions that I get is what do you use on your hair and did you big chop?

When considering going natural make sure you make sure that you realize that  everyone’s hair is different and what may work for one may not work for you. Your hair may not grow as fast as mine or someone else that you know.  You should also evaluate your reason for going natural and remove unrealistic expectations.This will keep you from becoming frustrated and become impatient.  Patience is vital throughout the Natural Journey. 

I had to learn my hair and I encourage you to learn your hair as well. I did not really do the big chop. I transitioned my hair for about 13 months. And you may ask , what is transitioning?  Transitioning is the process where you grow out your hair instead of just cutting off all the relaxer.  At the then end of the process, I did finally cut off the dead ends as the two textures were not mixing well and I had begun to have a lot of breakage and split ends.  When I cut off the ends, I was excited with my curl patten yet concerned what am I going to do with my hair now. 

There are many different styles that you can where but that all depends on the length of your hair. I will cover hairstyles in a later posts.

Learning the texture of your hair will help you to find the products that work best for your hair. There is a such thing as becoming a product junkie….don’t become a product junkie!!! One of the first things I did was to get a consult from a seasoned Natural Hair Specialist. The consultation helped we out a great deal to help me to learn things about my hair and how to take care of my hair in the natural state. 

My go to products now are Water, Tresseme Flawless Curls Conditioner, Coconut Oil and Argon Eco styler Gel. From time to time, I use other products but I always go back the primary products that seem to give me the best results for my desired style.

Hope this help with your decision to return to natural. I feel that this is the best decision that I made in regards to my hair. My only regret is that I did not do it sooner!
