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.
Wash days were a nightmare especially with two textures the best decision I have made since I started this journey was chopping off the relaxed ends.I began attempting to wear my hair naturally, I quickly learned though that not all products *cough cough Cantu* will provide you with the luscious, perfectly defined curls the YouTube influencers are promoting. After spending a ton of money on natural hair products, spending hours on what felt like an extreme power-lifting arm workout, breaking several combs, and draining my bundles to stream instructional videos, [(there is no greater hurt than when your twist out comes out trash),refer to the first photo above ]it’s a knife to your heart and self-confidence.
It’s not all bad though, my natural hair nirvana has been the DIY hair masks I get to treat my hair to. They have really helped reverse the damage to my hair and to get thicker and stronger hair.
It’s the weekend so if giving your hair a little TLC amid a glass wine and queued up Netflix is the plan,here’s a power protein hair treatment recipe to help ensure you are putting your best hair forward. 😉
– 1 tablespoon of Coconut Oil
– 1 tablespoon of honey
-1 tablespoon of Olive Oil
1.Mash the banana and avocado
2.sieve the mixture to remove tiny particles which might stubbornly stick to your strands.
3. Add the egg,honey and oils then blend away until you get a lump-free thick goopy consistency.
4. Apply to your hair from the ends to the roots.
5. cover with shower cap and let sit for 30-45 minutes.
6. Rinse with cold or luke-warm water as hot water can cause the egg to clump in the hair.
