Ive been there. Im probably in that place now. Ok. For certain Im in that place now. Ive mastered the art of keeping my hair moisturized and have perfected my sleep regimen. I have an abundance of products- some of which I have not opened. Ive tried every style in my now a little bit longer than an TWA fro and yet Im still bored!
For the past week Ive been rocking a twist out and figured that I would just let my hair do what it wants to do. And guess what? Its working! Who says that you have to style it everyday. I dont have time for it. I have teetered on the line of maybe getting it chopped into a tapered cut. But on the other hand- I want to get braids again.
All in all, Im figuring on just letting my hair does what it wants to do. Low manipulation, twist outs, water and oil. Thats it. Not to mention these prenatal vitamins are without a doubt aiding in the growth process!
While searching on YouTube, I found a cute tutorial on some easy styles for short natural hair (since Ive passed the TWA stage-Yipee!)
Check it out Below:
Ive touched on this topic before in 5 Things to Consider Before You Decide To Do the BIG CHOP!. But I see alot of people who comment on my Instagram page and lots of others about how they cant wait until their hair gets to a certain length. Its great to be inspired and aspire because that is what this blog is all about. But to be honest, having natural hair and maintaining it is a lot of work. And if you’re a natural then you know this is true!
I dont know about everyone else but Im enjoying every bit of my texture and every bit of each stage. I have found the perfect oil to keep it moisturized during the day and I have FINALLY mastered the art of PROPER detangling. I love trying out new products to see what works for me and experimenting with new ways to style my TWA. I CAN wait to reach that lengthy stage because in all actuality I feel as if Ill be learning my hair all over again. And its taken me almost a year to perfect this stage. LOL
Im saying all this to say-Embrace YOUR Textured Journey. Learn what works for you hair and perfect a regimen thas good for you.
Since going back natural, I have read that sometimes your hair can change in texture. Just as soon as I was getting used to being a cool 4C. I discovered that its actually changing into more of a 3C/4A/4C with a couple of annoying 2A pieces in there. Im not too certain on whether this has something to do with my change in regimen or my experiment with new products but I may as well embrace it!
Whats your hair type or types? And have you been experiencing any changes? Please share!
Do yall remember this past summer when Beyonce revealed her short pixie cut to the public? The cut was totally different from the long free-flowing locks we’ve always saw her rock. And I admit, I loved the new look on her!
Beyonce’s Pixie Cut
Fast forward to 5 days later, that exact cut is what I envisioned my hair to look like as I sat down in the chair to endure the first snip. Now you may be thinking, “What?” or “How/” or “Who lied to you!?” …. Truth is I told myself I would get a cute little pixie cut and rock that all free and natural and I would have little wisps of hair blowing when I walked! NOT! I had a bunch of kinky, curly fuzzy hair all over the top of my head and I couldn’t help but think, “What the FCUK did I do!?” In my previous post, “I Am Not My Hair”, I explained that it took me a few days to be fully comfortable with my newly found freedom. But to be honest, the real is way better than your expectations!
Now, I’m not one to try to convert you back to natural or persuade anyone into anything. This post is completely about MY journey and what is working for me. The freedom that comes along with rocking your natural hair is liberating, empowering and as my co-worker puts it “Its my middle finger to the man!” LOL! Natural hair is so versatile and to be honest at this point in my life, it’s as low maintenance as it comes. Perhaps I will not be saying this once I retain a bit more length but as for now, I’m rocking with it!
The moral is: Sometimes reality can exceed your expectations. Take risks.
So I was introduced to this product through my inspiration to revert back to me natural state, Diggz.
See her video below!
This video made me quite the believer in the product. And I just had to have some. So quickly after I did my Big Chop, I signed up for a regular monthly shipment of this MAGIC Oil. It came rather quickly and I was able to converse back and forth through mail with the creator of the oil before its arrival. Truth is, she had been using it for years! But decided to finally share it with the public a few years ago.
My hair has never felt so great! I use it twice it day; Once in the morning and then again before I go to bed. I believe that with this product in conjunction with my biotin pills is what has helped my hair grow a total of 5 inches (yes 5!!) in the last 4 months. Im extremely grateful to the CEO for sharing this awesome potion with us and for continuing to have great customer service.
