As of October 2016. There will be updates as things change.
Creating a hair regimen can be tough; keeping to it can be even tougher. But it doesn’t have to be. I believe we can create appropriate regiments for ourselves if we know our hair needs and how we want to go about fulfilling them. My purpose for writing this is so you don’t stumble about as much as I did and waste time and money. Please, please learn from my mistakes y’all.
So here’s how I’m currently going about it. I’ll include the reasons why I use the products I use and some examples of what you could use if your hair’s different from mine.
Have a beauty question you need answering? You can submit it here or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. My ability to write blogposts like this directly depends on you sending me questions. So please do!
Jolade*(name changed) was cool enough to send me an e-mail. Please be like Jolade, she doesn’t have two heads. She needed suggestions to help with her facial and hair care. Below is what she sent:
I’ll be 3 years natural in about 6 months. I can’t tell you how long my hair is because I don’t like to check, but I’m guessing it must be around 15 inches stretched out. Here’s some of what I’ve learned over this time period that I wish I had known when I had started. I hope it helps you.
Hair is just hair. The inherent structure regardless of the person, race etc. remains practically the same. Differences in texture arise simply from the shape of hair follicles on your head. A very flat follicle produces kinky hair and perfectly round follicle produces straight hair. Curlier hair is right in the middle.
In March I loosened my long-term winter protective style anticipating some new growth (which I got 😀 ). Unfortunately I also got a lot of breakage 😥
Normally I would have gone for a trim without thinking too much about it. But this time I wanted to see if there was a way to reduce the amount of split hairs I got. I should add that I live in an area that can get really dry during winters and probably played a big part in my horrible ends.
