Your hair is beautiful and healthy. What products did you use in the beginning of your natural journey to help with its health and growth.
Thank you for your kind words. I must admit that the beginning of my natural journey was turbulent. I didn’t have a clue what I was doing because, I didn’t do much research. Big mistake, but we live and learn from these things!
My first crash course in caring for my teeny-weeny afro was in moisturizing my hair. My problem was learning that less is more, which I wasn’t accustomed to in caring for my relaxed hair. Also, with short hair I had to keep in mind that I have a recurring acne problem, so certain hair products just didn’t mix with my active lifestyle. Heavy products + middle of the summer = sweat and clogged pores (Yikes!). So I opted for something light; I washed and conditioned with Yes to Carrots products, and used a dab of Kinky Curly’s Knot Today as a leave in. When the weather begins to turn as seasons change I recommend Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream, for a thicker more protective feel. Also, Proclaim’s Natural 7 Oil (Olive or Essential) is a great seal for any time of the year.
Thank you for writing, I hope this helps.
