Hey there lovely!
Okay before I start, I just want to point out that I am no expert in this and definitely not one of the natural girls on YouTube that seem to really know what they’re doing! (We will get there one day) Lol. Okay, now that’s out of the way, let’s proceed! 🙂
So it’s been about a year and 6 months since my big chop and I can honestly say that I haven’t been the type to use a particular product or deep condition or use masks,etc.. the whole “natural hair journey” for me has been just leaving my hair natural and grabbing a bottle of any moisturizer while grocery shopping and when needed, I’d grab some natural hair shampoo and conditioner. In the process , have also tried brands like ‘as I am’ and ‘Shea Moisture’ as shampoo and conditioner sometimes, but nothing too serious.
Now, it’s game changing time! I am excited to test out brands and I am starting out with carol’s daughter ‘Hair Milk’. I am trying not to use many brands at the same time as I might get confused on which products are working or not working for my hair. Today marks the start of this journey ! So exciting!
First I detangled with the ‘combing cream’ , then shapood and conditioned my hair and while still still in the tub, I used the leave in conditioner and there, first step was over.
These photos of my hair were taken after my hair air dried :).
On to the second step,
I wanted to define my curls a little bit more (though my curls were already define after washing), I used the moisturizer, the curling cream and Ecostyler gel while my hair was still wet. I used a method call “shingles” ( I think that’s what it’s called :/) to separate my curls, and voila! I love the way my hair feels clean. I will be observing the curls and how they fade and we shall see!!
