I decided to go natural 10 months ago. I had toyed with the idea for several years and finally decided to take the plunge. My friends and family could not believe that I cut my hair into a small bob. I had worked hard over several years to grow my hair out. I love hair; I could make a wonderful hair blogger because I love reading about hair, researching different hair techniques, and I have a product collection that could rival any product junkie. Honestly, I felt scared and a little liberated by cutting my hair. But as time went on I realized that I didn’t have a clue about how to deal with my natural hair.
I stalked Naturals on YouTube looking for the “secret”. I sought advice from my sisters over at Long Hair Care Forum because those chicks know everything as it relates to hair care; this website helped me grow out my hair many years ago. I sought the advice from all my natural friends and spent excessive amounts of money on miracle potions and hair care tools. I even hid under a weave for 10 weeks in hopes of it helping me look pretty and salvage my hair.
I recently took the weave out and really didn’t know what to do. I feel like I have worked too hard over the past couple of months to just go back to a relaxer. The idea of shelling out big bucks on another hair style was not appealing either. I decided to just play with my hair to see what I could come up with. Yesterday, as I watched the Falcons whoop up on the Raiders the secret finally came to me “Be PATIENT“ and do what works best for you! My hair grew extremely long by using good products, using roller sets, and having a lot of patience. Check out this cute video by some of my favorite hair bloggers Chescaleigh, Urban Bush Babes, Taren Guy and Hey Fran Hey collaborated on a natural hair infomercial parody called “The Secret to LONG Natural Hair!”
After the game went off I washed my hair and did a roller set. I am happy to report that my natural hair loves roller sets just like my relaxed hair.
The moral of the story: Do what works best for you and have a little PATIENCE!
