{January 6, 2012}   My hair, Your Hair

So let’s talk hair…Your on your natural hair journey and so badly want to know your “hair type”  Well friends simply said it just doesn’t exist. If you are a naturallista and truly believe in your heart that I am wrong please forgive me this is my opinion and I’m allowed to have it 🙂 I just so disagree with the whole hair typing thing going around. We are all different in our own way and we all have our own specific hair type.

I’m noticing rather than people embracing and enjoying their natural hair journey they are focusing more on comparing their hair textures to others, and trying to make their hair look like someone else’s. It makes me sad to see this, especially when your new to the natural hair journey you may or may not realize that you probably can’t have the same look as someone you saw on youtube or some other website. You may get discouraged and decide to relax your hair because your hair isn’t what you expected it to be.

One thing I’ve learned while on my journey is never expect anything. When you first start growing, the first hair that grows out is not necessarily what your curl pattern will be. I’ve noticed for a lot of woman the first hair that grows post relaxer is very rough, and coarse but as you continue to grow your hair, condition it and take care of your hair you will notice the change in it. It will start to soften and become more and more manageable, and as you find the items that work specific for you, you will notice even more of a difference.

Also remember what works for one may not work for another. Because we all have different hair textures and have different lifestyles it is impossible for one product to be the “magical product” for everybody. No product is gauranteed. All you can do is see a good review or hear something good about a product and try it. If it works great if not pass it on to someone else and keep searching.

We are such an instant gratification needing society that we want it now now now. We don’t take the time to stop and smell the roses. How boring would it be to big chop and instantly have beautiful locks down your back?… (ok let’s be honest that would be kind of cool) but were would the lesson be. The lesson of patience, of hard work, of learning yourself and your body.

Ladies this can be a real fun process if you just take your time be patient and enjoy the ride. I love trying something new that maybe I read about recently in a blog, or in one of the many books I read and it work on me. It’s so much fun and exciting when you tried a new item or concoction and see something new your hair does like shines differently or hangs in a cute new way.

Vitamins are helpful to take while on your journey and there good for your body too. Eating healthy along with excercising in conjunction with good hair care and trying products that work for you will all have a part in a beautiful and enjoyable hair journey. Good luck and God Bless friends.
