Things To Consider Before Going Natural

Black America Web

The transition from relaxed to natural hair has become increasingly popular. What is now referred to as the โ€œnatural hair movement,โ€ has more Black women wanting to ditch the chemicals for their own curls.

Iโ€™m an advocate for going natural and being natural, but a few things should be taken into consideration before making the decision to become a naturalista!

You must embrace your hair. Iโ€™ve heard stories of women taking the leap to go natural and then hating it because of the way their hair looked. When it comes down to it, itโ€™s not for everyone. But to truly be about this natural hair life you have to accept your hair, its texture, and everything that comes with it. Itโ€™s something different, but you have to fully embrace and love it.

You need patienceโ€ฆa lot of it. If you think youโ€™re about to go natural today, andโ€ฆ

So I just received my bottle of hairfinity in the mail today! I have been wanting to try the product for a while now after seeing all the amazing results online and to see if it would do the same for my hair. I really like the tips in this video about what to do and expect while taking hairfinity by @ms_black

1.) Best to take hairfinity while hair is in a protective style for best results
– I will be getting box braids tomorrow

2.) Best to take 1 pill a day instead of the recommended 2 pills a day to combat break outs

3.) Best to take it with a hefty meal and wash it down with a hot cup of tea

I will do an update post with before and after pictures once I finish my first bottle and will try to do a product review video as well. Looking forward to the results I will keep you posted ๐Ÿ™‚

Found this online and wanted to share it with you lovely ladies!! Sometimes you just have to let your hair down, look in the mirror and embrace your best self even if it comes with flaws. I have learned that what ever you do work hard at it, and do it passionately or don’t do it at all. Hope this conveys a bit of inspiration for you as it did for me!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Protective Styling!!….”The Bun”

Image

This is the time of year when I make an effort to wear more protective styles to give my hair a break for a while. Last week was very busy for me…..I really did not have time to do my hair like I usually do! So I wore my hair in a high bun for like 6 days straight lol! It was very convenient and low maintenance; the bun also helped to protect my ends.
My hair was already stretched from the week before so that made styling quick and easy just the way I like it lol!!
-I oiled my scalp
-Moisturized my ends
-Gelled it up
-Used bobby pins to tuck away the ends
At night I took the bun down to prevent strain on my edges and just repeated those steps again in the a.m.

The bun is definitely my go to protective style when I need something quick, easy, and cute. It is also great for naturals that are currently transitioning!! If you have other low maintenance protective styles I would love to know ๐Ÿ™‚
