The Loch Ness Monster and Santa are not real. Just like these myths that you have probably come across. Natural hair myths are a thing! Maybe you’ve believed them at some point in your life or still do. Dispelling myths in 5,4,3,2,1…
See that’s where you’re wrong. Being natural is absolutely for everyone. We don’t go natural. We go back to being natural. Being natural is for you and you and you and you too. Many new naturals get overwhelmed by the whole ten-step process of wash day. Some don’t like how they look in natural hair. We just have to learn the abc’s of being natural and embrace the new phase of life. You are not alone!
Sure a Shea Moisture conditioner will cost you a few hours of work. However, you do not need Shea Moisture to get your hair to waist length. You will find a host of affordable products that actually work. You can also look into natural solutions like shea butter and aloe vera gel that are sold by the Kilo as opposed to by the jar.
The one issue people have about natural hair is that they feel like it cannot be worn open. It definitely can! Protective styles help naturals to grow their hair and protect it. But they also wear it open. Whether twist outs, braid outs, afro or in its natural shrunken state.
So you’re transitioning and you’re starting to see the cute tendrils that are your curls. You then chop off the relaxed ends. And now you wait. Wait for your hair to reach mid-back length within 6 months. You wait and wait. It’s now been 2 years. Still at shoulder length. Your favourite Youtube hair vlogger with 3B hair looks stunning with her long, curly hair yet you cut your hair the same time as her. ‘’Time to go back to relaxed hair!’’ You say…Patience my child. Patience. You need to watch your hair routine and manage expectations. See what you need to change and focus on hair health of length. Watch your hair flourish right before your eyes.
