I have been natural for 5 months. I would not be natural today if I hadn’t had a setback with my relaxed hair. Like so many of my setbacks, I experienced breakage due to chemically overprocessing my locks. I was always proud of my hair in its relaxed state because it seemed to always grow fast and it was quite longer than most women I knew. I transitioned for 1 year before finally cutting off the remaining relaxed ends.
Because my hair is still quite layered and at shoulder length, my go-to styles are wet styling with twists and twist out styles.
I am venturing into other natual products but at the moment I use Tresemme Curl Hydration conditioner, V05 conditioner, Eco Styler Gel for my wash-n-go’s, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil for my prepoo’s and hot oil treatments, and Organic Root Stimulator for my weekly deep conditioning. I wash once a month with Neutrogena Residue shampoo mainly on my scalp.
I love being natural. All the fears and myths that I had accepted for years are completely gone and I have never felt more free and beautiful. I love my hair this way and I can’t see myself ever going back to relaxed hair. Frankly, I wasn’t relaxed, I was freaked out!
