Whoo I'm 1 Year Natural!!!


I am HAPPY and PROUD to say I just celebrated My 1 year mark being Natural on Tuesday. It really doesn't seem like its been a year but it has. I have to be honest that its still a learning process and you have to be committed to your hair. I have to say there were SEVERAL times where I wanted to cut my hair off, color it and/or start over. I'm Proud to say I NEVER once thought about going back to relaxers. Yes it is hard finding hairstyles and dealing with a new texture but relaxers were more frustrating and damaging to my hair. I think that I could have done better with my hair but I am proud of the results.

Use Raw Shea Butter, when I decided to go natural everyone talked about how much they love using shea butter and how it help with their hair. I went out and brought some but never used it because my hair was growing out and I really didn't see the need to using it. Now that my hair has reached a certain length.

Detangle more..I've been really bad about detangling my hair after every wash. Sometimes I'm in a rush and just need to wash my hair and go. (i don't do wash and gos)

TRIM its time for a Serious Trim. I have not trim my hair because I'm afraid of cutting it lol said the person who wanted to chop it off again #sad. I'm not sure yet if I'm going to trim it myself or go to a professional. However that's been an issue lately.

Throughout the year I had to deal with dryness but lately its been getting better, however I'm dealing with shedding. I really need to find ways to deal with this. I try my hardest not to put too much stress on my hair. I try once to put heat on it. I flat iron a small section and decided I wasn't ready for that. Ok back to the shedding, if anyone knows a method I can use please leave me a comment it would help alot!!
