I have always had coarse hair and even when I had it permed, it was a nightmare as I always ended up with headaches. So my best option was always a hair cut or braids.
I have never been comfortable with weaves and my mum always said I looked horrible in them anyway .
So about two years ago I decided to just grow my hair again and this time stay natural (to be honest, my hair was always mostly natural as I avoid perms for as long as I could).
At first it was exciting. Then, when it grew to a certain point, I didn’t know what to do with the hair and chopped it off again. Then i learnt that I should never use anything with sulphur on my hair.
It was like magic. My hair got softer, I combed with ease. I’m stuck now to certain hair brands,my favourite for all time – Cantu and also my favourite detangler-Taliah Waajid (the great Detangler).
My favourite and regular oils are – pure coconut oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, Jamaican black castor oil and mint oil. Jamaican black castor oil works magic on my edges. My hair is healthy and lovely to touch. The softness makes it easy to style.
I love being natural, I love being me and I love to Sparkle
