Unhealthy relaxed hair to healthy natural hair
If you follow me on Instagram, which you should, 🙂 Igbocurls, you would have noticed that on Sunday I put up a collage showing my damaged relaxed hair in 2011 and my currently healthy natural hair.
If you don’t like reading, please watch the two videos below.
I put up this picture to inspire and consequently motivate people who are at the point that I was in 2011 and also people who have either decided to go natural or are already on their healthy hair journey.
I made a lot of mistakes during my healthy natural hair journey that’s why I write a lot of Tips & Tricks to help you all avoid them.
When I began my journey I certainly did not know what my hair would look like. I knew I had naturally 1B black hair but I didn’t expect the curls, coils, kinks, volume and beauty. It is with this, that I understand the out pour of negativity and ignorance when people choose to ignore the purpose of the picture and focus on if it’s me in both pictures and bash my good looking robe. wink
If they read my Instagram caption they would have understood but whatever, I cannot inspire and/or motivate everybody.
Anyway, with my regular use of the right products, regimen and protective styles, my Type 4 kinky, coily, curly natural hair, gradually transformed from being chemically relaxed, damaged and broken to being very healthy and long.
If I can do it, you can certainly do it too. If you don’t know where to begin, have a look at My Regimen first, then go to Basics/Videos. You can go further by reading the Regimens I created for different hair lengths and also pick up some Tips & Tricks while at it.
If you are still a bit unsure and you have specific questions you would like me to give a direct answer to, drop a comment under any of my blog posts, DM me on Instagram or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org I will endeavour to reply within 2 weeks.
Otherwise, if you would like me to be your personal hair mentor for a year, there is a Fee attached. I can only take 4 individuals per month so please send me an email if interested & Cheers to Healthy Hair!
