3 Things You Need To Stop Doing To Your Natural Hair


Sis, Stop Doing These 3 Things To Your Natural Hair

First of all, I am preaching to the choir. For many, MANY years I have straightened my hair using some form of heat. About 4 years ago I discovered the heat protectants. I was ok with this because I would never wear my hair in its natural state….N-E-V-E-R! There are many reasons why, but I will save that for another post.

When I started paying more attention to my hair and my wallet, I started to look into wearing my natural hair. Now my natural hair is curly. I guess I would say that it is 2B/2C which is more of a wavy curl pattern. My problem with my naturally curly hair is always all over the place. To be honest, there are times where I just didn’t know what to do with it.

Parts of my hair were wavy, parts were curly, and some parts were straight! I mean parts that would not curl at ALL.  Why my hair was doing this? So, I started doing some research, and I found that the reason my curls would not actually curl was that it had been damaged from using excessive heat.

Heat Damage

Yes, all the years of doing my hair I realized this was my problem. On top of all of this, I love my hair color, and bleaching on top of using different methods of heat on a DAILY basis was killing my hair.

Actually, my hair was being stripped of its natural curl pattern, all from doing things that were not good for my hair! Seriously, I still have a piece in the front section of my hair that will not curl. I am in the process of repairing the damage but it is going to take some time.

I don’t want you to go down the same path as I did. I’m going to help you start out on the right foot if you are thinking about transitioning but find it hard to put down the heat. Here are 3 things that are pivotal in starting in the right direction to have healthy hair.
