In December of this year it will be 10 years since I cut off all of my hair and moved back into my natural state and I think that I am finally all settled in.
Returning to unprocessed hair was my first adult all in, life- image altering decision that was all my own.
And I think that I walked through the newness of that season well.
Like everyone else that has reverted back, I have learned and experienced a lot about this head of hair.
Too few trims.
Diy- Over trimming.
All of it…
It’s as if this head has been going through constant renovations.
Necessary revampings that have built on my creativity and desire to try new things.
Now, here we are and here is what I’ve learned so far:
Find the products that work for your hair.
Nine years and six months later and I am just now figuring out what works well for my strands. YouTube is the culprit and my desire to experiment and experience variety. Take it from me, watch the tutorials, try a few of the products,learn the styles, but SAVE your coins for the products that matter and work for your hair.
Once you find the products that work best with your hair, develop a routine and stick to it.
Visit a professional regularly.
Understand the importance of professional trims and routine maintenance and partake. That’s really it.
*The hardest part here is finding a natural stylist in your area that truly cares for the health of your hair.
Try new things
Try new protective styles that work for you( your style, hair length and thickness).They will break up the monotony that is sure to come. Trust me.
Take care of you!
Drink your water. Eat well. Reduce stress. Do the things that give you peace.
IT TOOK ME A REALLY LONG TIME TO REALIZE THAT LESS IS MORE THAN ENOUGH. USING THESE SIMPLE PRODUCTS, LOW MANIPULATION STYLES AND REGULAR MAINTENANCE IS ALL THERE IS TO MAINTAINING HEALTHY HAIR.
