The last few years I have tried different hair extensions (weave). I’ve worn clip-ins, a sew-in, and even wigs.
But…Have you wondered what my real hair looks like?
I made the decision to transition from relaxed to natural hair 4 years ago. There have been some bumps along the way, but I do like where my hair is going.
Most of my relaxed hair broke off, but I am grateful that it all grew back. And then some.
I am somewhat of a product junkie, but I don’t believe that wash day has to be a whole day. Ain’t nobody got time for that!
I may do a deep condition or hot oil here or there, but it isn’t an every week thing. I’m trying to get better at it, but it is something I will just have to plan better for in the future.
A few things that I have changed since going natural:
- I rarely straighten my hair with a flat iron or hot comb.
- I’ve only blow dryed my hair twice this year.
Before, going natural, when I would hear Hair Gurus say they hadn’t used heat on their hair in months I used to be skeptical. I used to be in dismay really. How could they function without heat?
Now, I understand.
My fro is thick. It would take a few hours just to blow dry and another hour or 2 to flat iron.
I would love to try a silk press at the salon but would need to find a stylist that I trust.
Which one do you like better: natural or weave?
Thanks for stopping by!
