|A wash n’ go style with Eco Styler Gel
at 3 months Natural
Sometimes I find people in hair forums who are trying to figure out what to do with their TWA a.k.a. “Teeny Weeny Afro”. Everytime I see this I think to myself, don’t they realize how good they’ve got it? When I was new to being natural and my hair was shorter than ever, I embraced it. It was so much fun! Now don’t get me wrong, it took some getting used to. However, after a nine month transition, it seemed like my hair wasn’t short for very long.
When I think back on it, all I can remember is how easy it was. My routine was pretty simple. Each day I either re-wet my hair with my homemade spritz or co-washed it in the shower with a cheapie conditioner. I didn’t really use a lot of products. I moisturized my hair with leave-in conditioner, my aloe/glycerin/water spray or shea butter. I tried a few different hair gels and realized that Eco Styler worked the best for making my curls pop. Other than that, I played around with finger coils, the conditioner only method, and hair accessories. This was also the time when I started wearing earings more often which turned out to be a great compliment to my short hair.
