The first curly haired child in my family.
I have always liked my hair, sometimes it was just too much, I call these years the "rebel hair child rearing years" I didn't have time to take care of it, so it was in a perpetual chignon or top knot. My kids are toddlers now, so I worry about different things and have a little more time for myself.
I went cold turkey "natural" 6 months ago, this means I stopped using "product" in it, only butters and olive oil. Curly hair is naturally dry, you have to invest time in bringing moisture to it, sometimes it feels like a job.
But... There's always one, isn't there? Life is too short to stress about things you can "kinda control" I moisturized it till an inch of making it oily and then cut half off. My hair was long, think "Latoya J" long. So now it's a comfortable shoulder length. I still use butter and oil. A little bit of hair polishers and Mousse nothing fancy, you can buy everything at your pharmacy or supermarket. (I'm frugal that way)
My hair now:
Products I normally use:
- Palmer's cocoa butter
- Olive oil
- Smooth and Shine Instant repair
- Smooth and Shine polishing curling mousse
