Don't Give Up On Your Natural Hair

July 29, 2011

Today, I am especially thankful for every natural hair blogger and Vlogger in the universe. You are so necessary. So often, women e-mail me or stop me on the street to pick my brain about their natural hair, and though I don't consider myself a natural hair blogger -- I love when it happens because I remember believing that I would never get a good grasp on my kinky hair. Moreover, I feel like a broken record with my natural hair message of hope {lol}, but I won't stop. Because the reality is, we weren't born with relaxed hair. And! There is nothing wrong with this beautiful kinky/curly hair that a little patience and care can't remedy. 

This post is dedicated to the newly natural and not-so-newly natural on the verge of giving it up.

To start, a few things for your consideration: 

If you think you're natural and you're holding on to relaxed ends, you're in denial. Go get a hair cut and get it over with. 

Don't take product advice from someone who CLEARLY has a different hair texture than you and get upset when your hair does something different.  

If you're completely lost in the transition, go to a salon that specializes in natural hair and have a consultation. Natural hair is NOT the same as relaxed hair.

If your stance is that you'll go back relaxed as soon as your natural hair disappoints or frustrates you, you're already losing. 

Do you need to know your natural hair texture? Check here: 

Youtube natural hair products, styles, tips, etc. Vloggers are a gold-mine resource for learning how to go from straight to kinky/curly.

Now that we've gotten that out of the way, I want to share a few blogs and YouTube channels that I believe useful.

  1. I love my natural hair. I feel so free when I wear my natural curl pattern. You are so right about products working differently for everyone. I've used a lot and have asked others what they used, but I've found it's a trial an error process for us all.

  2. I love my hair natural, as well. It was a major change to my daily regimen but I don't have any regrets.

  3. This is such a useful post, my natural hair is thick, wild, dark and curly.
    By the way, check out my blog. I've given you an award :)

  4. Love the post. I'm starting to love my hair more every day now that have go to styles I like and a wash routine that works for me. Loving it!

  5. Thanks for this post, at least once a week I think about reverting back. I prefer my hair short and straight! I never realized how much I associated my beauty with my hair. There are some styles I like, while other styles seem to only look good on other people. I'll have to bookmark this post so I can refer to it when I get discouraged :)

  6. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it
    was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly
    enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for inexperienced blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.
