I have been natural since 2011 ( I big chopped and never looked back—nah, I looked back but kept it pushing). Now, like many naturals, I have this overwhelming feeling every now and then when I see a new natural with beautifully curly (Yes-including 4c) hair that forms a perfect crown around her face. Its shiny, curls are popping, and looking well moisturized. I feel proud that I belong to this “group” and then I feel inadequate because my hair is less than the aforementioned. But honestly, Im the one to blame. I have a confession: I don’t take adequate care of my hair.
Therefore, I am challenging myself by starting a new hair care regimen.
- Shampoo hair regularly. For me, that means once a week. Either Saturday or Sunday
- Deep Condition weekly
- Regular Protein treatments. Im currently in love with Henna and will try to do this bimonthly.
- MOISTURIZE DAILY
- Keep hair detangled and styled
- Oil scalp once a week.
- Scalp massages
- BE CONSISTENT.
To jump start this healthy hair challenge, Ill trim my hair today and keep you all posted!
