I started embracing my natural hair in 2017 after deciding to transit from a relaxed hair to a natural hair. Since then, I’ve promised myself to never get a relaxer again.
Although, maintaining my hair has been a very difficult one. The bigger my natural hair gets the harder it is to maintain.
The most empowering part of my natural hair journey is that It makes me reconnect with my root and who I really am. It also gives me the opportunity to help other black women embrace there natural hair textures.
It’s hard for me to pick which natural hair product is my favourite because I love trying new products but If I’m to pick, I will say one of the best product I’ve used is the Cantu Shea butter. It keeps my hair moisturised and soft for a long time.
One of the most magical thing about natural hair for me is shrinkage. Every time I wash my hair and it shrinks, it just makes me feel like I’ve got some kind of superpower 😊 like how can my hair go from big and poofy to small and curly? I guess it’s the BLACK GIRL MAGIC!
Finally, One of the most effective way I’ve been able to maintain my natural hair is by making sure I do not leave it out for too long. After washing, I have it weaved immediately in other to prevent breakage and for me the longer I have my natural hair out the more painful it gets when combing it.
Oh! lets not even talk about how many combs I’ve broken since I went natural 😢 that’s gonna be in another post. For now, below is the link to my previous post on how i do not enjoy my natural hair journey.
