Hope you’re doing great, I just realised that I’m 2 years, a month and a week natural today, and an update is only right. I get a lot of questions about my hair, its care and my regimen. In the past, I have tried to make videos, write posts and answer questions via my social media accounts, But I guess when it comes to hair, we enthusiasts always want to know more. Hence this post.
MY NATURAL HAIR TIME LINE (2months post Big chop till date-2years Natural)
I would try to divide this post into sections and answer all questions I have gotten over time. All points/answers are solely what has worked for me, I am not an expert, take all with discretion.
1. WHY NATURAL?: I have cut my hair thrice before this, just for style purposes i.e the ‘Anita baker’ kind of hair cut, but it never lasts. The back grew back and I to re-trim it almost every 2-3 months. On the last occasion, I just decided to take it all off. My friend Biola was actually the one who ‘enticed’ me with the natural hair movement. I first wanted to keep it short, i.e like month 2 as seen above, but when it started growing out, I quite
Remember I told you about a hair company called RaéFran Hair HERE. The company contacted me a while back to try out some hair from their range. I was sent their Virgin Brazilian and Indian hair. I am yet to fix the Indian hair, but I have used the former. I was sent a 14″ closure and bundles in 14,16 and 18 inches in colour 1B. However, I knew I didn’t want a plain colour as I already have similar weaves like that, so I decided to add some highlights. For the 1st week I wore it as a centre part with little layers. After which I further cut it to a shoulder bob and wore it as a side part. My complete review is after the Images below.
I always like to incorporate new oils or products into my overall health care regimen, and I just added four new oils to my skin and hair regimen. Thought to share with you!
1. PEPPERMINT OIL : peppermint is a cross between watermint and spearmint and is native to Europe. Historically, the herb has been known for its medicinal uses. This oil is great for hair care as it gives a cooling effect to the scalp. It helps in removing dandruff and lice. Peppermint oil has antiseptic, regenerative, and stimulating effects which improves blood circulation to scalp areas triggering/promoting hair growth. It also can relieve the scalp of irritation and dry skin. Based on my research, I find that it allows hair have a shiny, fresh look. Peppermint oil can be found in many hair products and alternative solutions for baldness, dandruff, and other hair-related conditions. I bought mine from
