My Natural Hair

Having natural (unrelaxed) hair is something I have often dreamed about. I just never had the opportunity to know what it looked like because I had relaxed hair for as long as I can remember. Many a time I decided to go natural but I did not succeed because I lacked knowledge of what to do to take care of it properly and I usually gave in and  put in a relaxer.

So fast forward to 2012, I had my last relaxer in May 2012. After that, I decided

that was the end. I had my hair in braids as a protective style while I transitioned. I did not do anything special during my transitioning.

On the 8th of March 2013, I decided to big chop because my hair had grown so much and my relaxed ends were quite long as well but it did not look nice. I big chopped myself by putting my hair in little twists. I was scared but afterwards i felt so happy and proud.

Now, I have been playing with my hair so much and I cannot get enough of it. I feel like I am meeting a new part of me that has been absent for too long.

Unlike the previous times I tried to go natural, I have armed myself with some knowledge on how to care for my hair and I bought some products to help me as well.  Here are a few below:

                                     ORS Curls Unleashed Leave-In Conditioner

                                            Creamy Shea Butter{100% unrefined}

                             Silk Bonnet with my Pretty Mannequin Head{ Isn't she so gorgeous?}


                                                     Eco Styler Gel with Argan Oil

                                                        Organic Coconut Oil

                                    Herbal Essence Hello Hydration Conditioner

                                                                Spray Bottle for Water

                                                               Extra Virgin Olive Oil

It's all a learning process which I am happy to experience and understand what works for my hair.

I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend as I have. Have a lovely week ahead. X
