My hair has been in its natural state for over 3 years and I still have not figured out how to manage it! I leave it out for all of 3 days before I get extremely frustrated with it and put it in a protective style. I am sitting here relaxing while a hot oil treatment is penetrating my strands. I really want to become efficient at managing my hair and not just the extensions and synthetic curls. As I write this, I can already feel the feeling of defeat rising within but I am not going to be defeated this time! I am challenging myself wearing my natural hair only for 2 full weeks and I want you all to come along with me on this journey! This means not extensions for 14 whole days. I shutter at the thought! But I am going to do it! I am going to attempt to post photos of my hair every day until Friday October 4th to track my progress.
I am going to take this time to learn my hair. The problem I have had is translating hairstyles for thick natural hair to my hair which is fine, dull, and lifeless. I am going to do it though. I WILL learn a routine that works for my hair as far as moisturizing, sealing, styling, etc. I am going to ROCK my natural hair with the same confidence that I have when wearing extensions. This hair growing out of my scalp will no longer be able to defeat me. I will conquer it and look fabulous while doing so. If you have felt like me, please join in on this journey with me! We can win together. If you have any tips or tricks to work with fine natural hair PLEASE SHARE!!
Until next post,
