Trends really do evolve. For a long time keeping your hair natural wasn’t so stylish, in fact most people would think one is probably too broke to buy a weave. However; both young and older women have decided to go natural. For some it’s purely fun and being adventurous, while for others it’s linked to health reasons like avoiding some headaches associated with plaiting your hair or burning your scalp while using chemicals. What we are very sure of is, only confident women can rock natural hair.
One of the disadvantages a natural is likely to face is finding products that will benefit the new hair. When you have chemical in your hair, there are a variety of products to choose from, it’s a little different when it comes to natural hair, you have to take your choice of shampoo and conditioner seriously. Ask any natural, and she’ll tell you it’s all about the type of hair you have. When you begin the natural hair journey it is good to be well researched, we have 4a hair which has a well-defined natural curl pattern. This type of hair usually retains moisture, but it can still be prone to dryness. The most common hair types are 4b and 4c which are the kinky type. Unless straightened, this hair may look shorter than it really is.
The next step after establishing which hair type you have is to follow a basic hair routine which should have a cleansing shampoo, a moisturizer and conditioner. Don’t lose hope if you don’t get the results you want the first time you devote a few hours weekly to hair. Hair can be resistant the very first time, it is a trial and error.
