So, I’m officially team natural 🙂
I was transitioning from relaxers and growing out my natural hair for a while. I’ve never been someone that relaxes their hair often as I usually do it every few months and wear weaves or braids.
As of March this year I was officially transitioning. but over the past couple of years my hair had become so damaged from not being careful enough with my hair.
So on March 23rd 2012 I chopped all my hair off and dyed it a brownish red colour. I pretty much killed two birds with one stone as I have always wanted to dye my hair but never had the courage to since I already had enough chemicals in my hair due to relaxers. I had been thinking about cutting the hair for months but was trying to avoid doing it by transitioning instead. But I couldn’t be happier with my decision, I’m absolutely loving it!
I spend a lot of my time consulting others about their hair and skin while working at Lush, so there are a few products that I know my hair loves and I will continue to use. But now that I’m all natural, I need to change my hair care regimen a little.
Right now I’m just using VO5 Nourish Me Truly Conditioner to co-wash my hair every morning and I’ll be using Organic Root Stimulator’s Curls Unleashed Sulfate Free Shampoo to wash my hair at the end of every month.
I feel like I cut my hair at the perfect time as we are dealing with a heatwave over here in London.
Are there any products you could recommend to a type 4a/b hair natural girl?
