IMPORTANCE OF BEING CONSISTENT

Image
Hello Kinks and Coils Divas how are you guys doing? Hope everyone is doing great?...

So one of the most conversation I have with most naturalistas is the fact  that they want full and natural hair immediately  (instant gratification)...
Someone's hair can be your hair goals but there is no pills or potions to make your hair become full and long overnight consistency is key.

Understanding your hair type is very good and important cos that helps you to know what product will or will not work for your hair... However you have to be consistent after you have achieved this first hurdle..

Treat your hair like New born babies that work with a sleep schedule, As a new or old natural hair woman your hair needs a consistent routine to grow and flourish...

Consistency not only gives you fuller and longer hair but it also helps you to avoid damaged scalp growth and irregular hair pH level. Because all required process needed for your hair to grow will be carried out at a specific routine...

These are three easy things you can do to help grow back those edges..


EDGE STIMULATING CREAMS OR OILS: 
Apply the product morning and evening on your edges and massage it in.. What creams  would I recommend?
Castor Oil is always an available cream that you can find around the natural hair market..


Wenaturals also have really good edge stimulating creams so you can check them out on instagram @wenaturals..



AVOID TUGGING HAIRSTYLES: In as much as protective styling is great for your hair,  avoid styles that will tug at your edges like tight Senegalese twists, braids or even the common Ghana weaving that has been the number one cause of hair loss at the edges... Just leave your front hair line alone...

Parabens: They are considered xeonestrogen. Estrogen disruption of the natural process in the body have been linked to breast cancer.As a matter of fact a study in 2004 done in the UK found that Parabens were actually present in a breast cancer tumor. Also if you have unexplained hair loss,  the parabens maybe the cause or skin reaction.  The parabens IN shampoo is of more benefit to the manufacturer than it is the consumer... If you avoid parabens,  your hair isn't missing anything rather you are avoiding problems for yourself.
