|Happy to be Natural
Five years strong!
This past weekend marked the fifth anniversary since I went natural back in 2009. I did my big chop on the third day in May after a nine month transition. Recently I looked back on my natural hair journey and thought about how I would have done things differently. It took a lot of trial and error to get to where I am today but I finally figured some things out.
In some of my more recent posts I discussed the different uses for hair oils. I spent a very long time thinking that I was sealing in moisture with coconut and olive oils. In actuality, grapeseed oil was the true winner when it came to this because it was heavy enough to lock in the moisture. Now I know that coconut and olive oils are to be used to help moisturize and condition the hair; not to seal.
