I have been natural 3 years and 2 months
I’ve been natural twice. The 1st time I transitioned but I did not know that at the time. This current time I chopped it all off! I was so happy and nobody couldn’t tell me I wasn’t cute. lol. Big ups to all the transitioners…because that was so hard for me. I lasted 6 months my first time around.
I get confused with the curl type system so I would guess its around 4a…but Im not positive. I do know I have a lot of different textures. Some coily, some wavy and curly and a patch that has no definition at all.
I love Riah’s (my hair’s name) versatility!
I would say my big chop. It was so easy back then. The longer my hair gets the more difficult it becomes and I go from wanting locs to big chopping all over again.
I’ll try almost any hair style. I like to change it often. But when i’m in a jam its the side puff or bun.
Most people where like OMG I cant believe u cut off all your hair but nothing that I couldn’t handle.
I use all Essence of Oshun products to which I am the owner.
Here is where the regime changes depending on what I decide to do with my hair.
Whip appeal shea whip may be used as a styler or moisturizing sealant. Use sparingly. A little goes a long way. Rub in hands to melt whip. Smooth onto hair. I use this for braid outs, twist out, puffs and mini twist. I also at times moisturize with Desire leave in conditioner throughout the week if my hair feels dry or to smooth for puffs or retwisting.
I love www.blackgirllonghair.com and youtubers I follow are whoissugar, naptural85, aliciajames, and mahaganyknots to name a few but its a lot of them out there!
Have fun with your hair and take LOTS of pictures!
