One Month Update on my Natural Hair Journey..

This month I have taught myself so much about who I am, and I am extremely proud of myself and how I had the courage to do this with my hair.
I am a 'girly-girl' as I call myself so often, lol but I am proudly so. With that being said my hair was my everything because it was part of who I am and the girly persona was portrayed with my hairstyles, my hair was a part of my image and my dress code. But now "it's just hair" like literally, I'm not saying forget about it, take care of it and nurture it but don't let it determine who you are as a person.

When I cut my hair I thought this will change who I am as a person, it actually did change who I am it made me a better version of me! I am more confident and my hair makes me believe that I am able to make bold decisions. Cutting my hair was one of the boldest things I have EVER done. Many people told me they didn't think I'd be able to do this. Okay, guys sorry I am babbling too much…

In my next blog, I will talk about the reactions I got from my family, friends and even strangers on my hair. However, this is an update on my hair lol. As I said in my previous blog my hair will love me for big chopping and apparently she really does!

My hair has been growing slowly but it is fuller and much healthier than before. Looking at the pictures above you can see there isn't much difference in length but along my edges, you can see the fullness, so I think my hair is just repairing itself now before it decides to grow in length. But girl, I'm waiting patiently on you! (I'm enjoying this length so much now

My daily routine is very simple I watched Daye La Soul's video on Hair Types and Textures (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkWhewD0AWc) and learnt more about my hair type and I found that the LOC (Leave-in, Oil, Cream) method is best for me because I have very dry hair, thick strands, and dense hair.

So I spritz it with water, then I apply some Micro-Keratin leave in mixed with Placenta, then some Avocado oil or coconut oil and lastly, Auntie Jackie's curling custard in circular motions onto my hair. Or I just comb it all out and rock my TWA!
Then I use some gel and apply it to my edges/baby hairs using a toothbrush.
Currently, this is the only method I use until it is long enough to do some cute styles which I can't wait for.
Thanks for taking the time to read this…
