Transitioning To Natural Hair
Have you decided to “go natural”? Are you a natural already?
I am a natural. I started going natural a few years ago. I originally had a perm which I first got it when I was about 18. Yep, I was a natural up until then. My hair was past my shoulder.
Getting a perm really changed the texture and growth of my hair. It actually stopped growing and starting periodically breaking off. I suspect the chemicals. So I started getting my hair trimmed.
A few years ago I noticed some damage to my hair in the back. It was then that I decided to go natural.
I let my daughter “cut it all off”! Yes, I had very very very little hair. I couldn’t even twist or plait it. I noticed it growing back after a few weeks.
I started using Cantu Leave In Conditioner alone with the S-Curl Moisturizer. By the time it was long enough to plait my daughter would braid it into a protective style and put in a quick weave so that I would nt have to bother my hair.
My hair has grown since and is about 5-6 inches. I really look forward to it becoming longer and stronger.
So here are just a few things you can do to help grow your hair:
2. Wear protective styles
3. Avoid heat as much as possible
4. When wrapping your hair before bed, use a satin or silk scarf — cotton ones tend to dry your hair out and can cause breakage
I am proud of my natural hair. If you are a natural and are struggling to grow your hair, don’t give up. Wear protective styles and keep your hair moisturized.
