My natural journey

ZAMA

 

There are so many lessons that I have learned and continue learning on my natural journey. I thought I was just cutting my hair and giving it a fresh start and was not really prepared for what came after.

There is something about cutting your hair that changes your perspective on things.

I guess for me it was a sort of awakening, I just became more aware of myself as well as my surroundings. There was no room for pretence. This reflected in many aspects of my life. There was also a greater awareness of the rest of myself physically and emotionally. . Natural is a personal journey. When something is good though you just want to share it with those you love.

I also learned that less is more. The simpler the routine , the happier the hair. What works for one person may not work for another person.

Hair Tips

  • What works for me is a good protein treatment once or twice a month.  Protein makes the strands much stronger.
  • Washing may hair with conditioner instead of shampoo (also known as co-washing) once a week. I find that conditioner keeps the hair soft, manageable and hydrated. You can also mix your shampoo and conditioner.
  • A good shampoo or African black soap. It really depends on the condition of your hair. Use Black soap about every six weeks for a deeper cleanse.
  • Basing my scalp with raw Shea butter or a Shea butter based product such as T444Z. Shea butter locks in moisture. A little really does go a long way. You can also apply Shea butter on your edges to give them a slick look.
  • Applying oil to wet hair after washing . My hair loves oil and water. It seals the ends making it less prone to breakage. Use sparingly though. My hair is happy with Jamaican Black Castor Oil.

I also discovered that what is good for my skin is generally good for my hair.
