Back To Natural



I have been transitioning for nearly 2 years now and have discovered a lot about my hair on the way. Firstly, everyone is different. It is important to realise that you have to find what works for you and not what someone who appears to just have the same length hair is using.
We all have different hair types. It depends which interpretation you use, 
but refer to the chart below for guidance:


Moisturising natural hair is the main thing you need to worry about when transitioning. The difference between the thick coils and the straight relaxed hair has a lot of tension which means your hair is likely to break. This is called the line of demarcation and holds a lot of problems for people like me that are transitioning. By trimming you hair regularly and moisturising it with these core products you can minimise any damage! 


THE BASICS

Raw Shea Butter
blend or melt to apply to hair because it is very stiff!
Almond Oil
or any oil that has natural protein 
Castor Oil
smells awful but is amazing for growth. Use it sparingly because it is very heavy. I only use it on my edges, but you can also use it on problem areas of the skin
Shea Butter Leave In Conditioner -
 use after shampooing on towel dried hair or for use during styling
TRESemmé Shampoo and Conditioner -
Tresemm√© products are often underrated but I find that the shampoo and conditioner leave my hair really soft and easy to comb out.

  1. Natural hair is the best thing I ever did..its grown 11 inches in 18 months..when I straighten it..It looks relaxed..I love to see black women embrace their natural hair! For me it shows strength, character, and pride in your culture and history. I would no go back to the creamy crack!
