WHAT MADE YOU GO NATURAL? (5 REASONS WHY I WENT NATURAL)



Hey kinks how is everyone and everything?..
Hope everyone is doing great?.. Well as some of you know I was out of town this weekend for my dad's one memorial service but am back now!...

So whilst I was away I met someone I knew when I cut my hair and she said 'Tega you stuck with this natural hair thing' Now I wanted to go all hammer on her and say 'what natural hair thing?'...  But then I sat down and asked..  Why do people even go natural?  I know you will ask why did you go natural Tega?  So am going to give you five point why I went natural or should I say stuck with it and I hope I will convince you or better still encourage you to stay natural

(1) REDEFINING BEAUTY: In the black or African community we have been told for so many many years what beauty should be I say this all the time that for the longest time our kind of hair was tagged unkept and ugly, but going natural for me was telling myself and everyone around me that my beauty is unique and different.

(2) AVOIDING HAIR LOSS AT OLD AGE: Constant use of perms or relaxer will cause serious hair loss as you grow older, you will notice that your hair will be falling off; I actually want a head full of hair when I grow older so...

(3) PREVENTING UNNECESSARY SICKNESS: on a personal note, I used to suffer a lot of lumps growing up,  In fact I have had three breast lumpectomies so I had to find a better and a more organic way to live life, there are a lot of dangerous ingredients that is not only damaging to the hair but also to one's general health.

(4) TRAINS MY ACCOUNTABILITY AND RESPONSIBILITY: look in all honesty people close to me know that I am the biggest baby you can find around,  I am not accountable for nothing lol..  But going natural has forced or should I say taught me to be accountable and consistent, not just with my hair but with my life in general cos I think to myself if I can take a whole day to take care of my hair,  I can do other things!.

(5) FREE FROM HEAT AND SCALP DISCOMFORT: I am a big hair don't care girl so I normally use nothing less than three packs of hair for my weaves or wigs etc...  But these days most of the time I am usually on my natural hair so I actually have breeze going through my scalp (in this weather) and I have space to scratch my scalp whenever I please so..  Lol

I hope I have sold natural hair to you and encouraged you to stay on the journey cos I know it can be hard and annoying, sometimes even frustrating but stay on the course it's a good and beneficiary one to you my love! ..

5 TIPS TO HELP REDUCE SPLIT ENDS AND BREAKAGE

Hey kinks what's up y'all?.... Greetings! I hope everyone is having a fab day?

Okay so to the post what is a split end?  The end of a hair strand is damaged resulting in the strand separating into two or more fragments.

Hair breakage is more of a problem for naturals than split ends because split ends is as a result of many activities that a TRUE natural try to avoid..

Most naturals really suffer from hair breakage and I used to be a part of the team (even do my hair still breaks it has reduced a lot)

Here are five tips to help you manage hair breakage..

TRIM YOUR HAIR AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE:I came in contact with someone who told me that she has a phobia for cutting her hair and she was worried she was weird, but the psychologist in  me didn't see her as crazy though, this is a real problem that a lot of women have. With that being said,  trimming your hair doesn't mean you are cutting it off, it means you cutting of the damaged ends to allow new growth to be possible.

3 REASONS WHY YOUR HAIR ISN'T GROWING

Hey kinks what's up y'all? Happy weekend darlings..

So based on the numerous questions on hair growth, here are three reasons why your hair isn't growing.


YOU COMB IT ALL THE TIME: I have stressed this IN  my hair journey that I don't comb my hair all the time. In fact one of my new year's hair resolution is to comb my hair less this year..  So I take finger detangling serious and I am patient with it. Combing of natural hair (which is already hard in the first place)causes SERIOUS tension to your hair follicles and breaks your hair more than it would if you just finger detangle!.  


YOU DO NOT MAINTAIN A HAIR ROUTINE: like I have said in previous post you have to be consistent but not just consistent, you must have a hair routine or regimen.. Your hair has to be accustomed to a specific method.. It's not everything that is flying in the market that you should do (Charley trust me I learnt the had way).. There are a lot of DIY's out there but you have to be c…
