I don’t wanna call it the “awkward stage” anymore… This is normal during the transitioning stage, and everything in life looks a little “different” during this process. I’d been shaving my head, or getting the growth in the sides “softened” for the last 3 years, so it’s been a while since I’ve had a full head of hair never mind natural hair. Did I mention that I’m also 100% free of any AND all processed hair? Yes. *taking a bow*
I’ve been sticking to my routine of conditioning twice a week, moisturizing (religiously), spritzing, drinking LOTS of water, and trying so damn hard to eat healthy. Oh and reading up on some natural hair care tips from other members of the online natural hair community. There is some gooood stuff out there.
I’ve noticed that on days when I wear my hair out, lots of people ask me questions about it. I find this odd, as there’s a large community of women and even men with natural hair; yet some people act like they’ve never seen beautiful nappy curls. Even then, I appreciate their curiosity, because you know I’m always happy to talk about it lol. Don’t stop asking, it usually leads to some pretty interesting conversations 🙂
peace, love and health
