My transition journey from relaxed to natural hair has been an nightmare to say the least. Some people just have it easy from Day 1, but many people don’t. My hair texture isn’t even that difficult to work with, but the natural hair journeys I was observing on social media weren’t the ones that came with heat damage, 3-4 different curl patterns in different parts of your scalp, or accurately showcased the frustration when a desired end product wasn’t achieved. From battling two different textures to product trial and error, transitioning from relaxed to natural hair can sometimes leave you feeling defeated. I can’t tell you the number of times I have fantasized about just relaxing my hair and getting on with it.
You know that thing they tell you about the pregnancy glow? Issa scam people😂
I glowed for all of 2.5 sec and then it was downhill ever since.It was an acne fest up in my face.
Thing is there is acne and then there is hormonal acne.Hormonal acne is basically equivalent if not more painful than ingrown hairs.I know we are all grown here and if you have experienced ingrown hairs especially on your pubs then you know that pain is from the devil.Just like ingrown hairs they are unsightly,painful and inflamed.
Merry Christmas Lovelies!?
I know its a day to make merry so I will keep it short and sweet literally!??
