At the beginning of this year, I decided that I would stop chemically treating my hair and embrace my natural hair. I think just about every woman that I know has decided to do this. I admit that I was hesitant about going natural because my hair is very course. After talking to other sisters and hair professionals, the key is conditioner and LOTS of it. I use Taliah Waajid for Children and Silk Elements MegaSilk Olive Moisturizing Treatment. I also use coconut oil and shea butter on my hair. I was also told that it would be a lot of work, and that I would need to give my hair time to recover from the many years of relaxing.
Last year, I wore a very short cut, which was really cute and easy to manage. However, I was starting to notice that my hair was thinning around my hairline. Since natural products and herbal supplements are improving my health, it should work for my hair. I decided to try Ninja Hair Growth Tonic for my thinning patches of hair. I saw results within 2 weeks. I massage my scalp with it 1-2 times each week nightly and wash it the next day.
To make my transition to natural hair easier, I have been wearing fluffy twists, which look natural. They also feel very light. My stylist says that my hair is growing fast. When the relaxer “grows out”, I can rock my natural hair and love it!
