What’s been most challenging about your natural hair journey?
Which products has your hair absolutely loved?
My Hair absolutely loves my home-made whipped Shea butter. I use it to do my twists and if I want more definition I use Taliah Wajids Curling Cream.I absolutely love it!! I wash my hair with African Black Soap or diluted pure Dr Bronners Castile Soap. Currently however I’m on a ‘no soap’ washing routine.I only co-wash and clarify my hair with my Bentonite Clay Mixture and I always ACV(Apple Cider Vinegar) rinse with cold water to remove any build up.
‘My hair type is more like 4c/4z…
…Very kinky and super coily’
What’s been your experience on dying your Natural hair?
I coloured my hair because I wanted a chic afro look; but I had the worst first experience; I went to a beauty school and they bleached my hair. The amount of dryness and change to my hair texture was pretty bad. If you’re a natural and thinking of colouring your hair I would definitely recommend the Shea Moisture Colouring System for Natural hair. It’s Ammonia and Sulphate free and doesn’t make your hair feel rough. I’ve also heard good things about Henna but I’m yet to try that.
1. Part my hair in three sections
2. Spray water on each section
3. Add oil and cheap conditioner then detangle
In that order…It cuts down my wash day time tremendously.
