What Natural 'rules' do you break?
 
So I've been on this journey for about three years now, and I realized that it was alot of trial and error to get to this point. In the beginning I was a total 'natural nazi' who solely used natural products, counted the number of bad ingredients and other anal things. Now I do whatever I want! Here's some things I've done (hey, rules are meant to be broken):

- Dyed my hair a million colors (blonde, black, red, carrot top, purple, and now the ends are hot pink)
- Use generic styling products including hair grease from the beauty supply, Miss Jessie's, hair spray
- Use gel for every style...no not Eco styler...AMPRO baby!
- Used a curling iron on my straightened hair

Granted I do have healthy practices but I like to have fun as well! What about you, do you break the traditional 'natural hair rules'?

I've done a couple bad things:

I've put lemon juice in my hair to lighten it...
I use drug-store brands that sometimes have silicones and chemicals in them
I don't trim my hair as much as I should

I used to never wear a hair bonnet or sleep on a satin pillowcase, too! I was such a badbad :/ lol

I use cones, I shampoo all the time (otherwise I'd have fish jizz in my hair) I'v e bleached, dyed my hair.

But does using cones make you not natural?

What is natural? all I can think of is anti relaxer/texlaxer/all that other shizz

I do not break any rules! HAHA

No fo real tho'. I started using a blow-dryer (tension method) to stretch my hair before styling for the week. WHAT A DIFFERENCE THAT MAKES!!!!

I use a sulfate free shampoo every week. I don't use cones (they are the devil to my hair). I stay pretty natural in terms of products.

:hiding:I comb from root to ends because sometimes you just can. Don't fight it...:hiding:

I dye my hair (if loving you is wrong.. I don't wanna be right) , and when I can't find my big tooth comb I comb out my hair with ...dare I say it :glasses1: a rat tail comb. The natural community is not pleased with me :sad3: :protest:

I check the scent more than the ingredients.

I don't really read labels and I do not research unpronounceable ingredients. I do check to make sure there is little to no coconut anything and I keep it moving.

I use IC Fantasia Tea Shampoo whenever I feel I have build-up and need to clarify (while I don't think this is "bad" it is stripping and even if it is bad, I don't care, my hair loveth it).

I always comb (finger combing too) root to tip (kanye shrug).

I always lay my edges down with gel if they are going to be seen.

Besides these few...I'm a good "natchal".

...i'm supersonic

I also comb from root to end. Kinda. I pass the comb until it gets stuck, then go end to root up until the stuck point. I have no idea why.

Otherwise, I'm a good girl! :D

murrrcat 08-20-2012 07:24 AM

Lol ^ yes


And I read the ingredients and then I'm like "oh well" and still get it anyway LOL

Rules? What rules? Haha

Not really a natural rule but a general hair rule I have seen the "experts" say is don't condition all the way to the roots. Supposedly the oils from the scalp make this not needed. Somebody forgot to tell my roots that. My roots get really dry if not conditioned and moisturized.

HAHA if I really want to try it I just go for it aslong as it doesn't have olive oil in the ingredients that is my hair's worst enemy.

I thought I was the only one who does this!
I brush at the bottom...then go to the top brush down til it stops and go back to the bottom til I get to that part lol.

The tension method is really difficult for me, unless I'm combing through it my hair will take forever to stretch. Its super resiliant!

I dnt deep condition. That's a waste of time for me just to end up with mushy hair because my hair is easily over moisturized

The Snow White one? Oh, it is like happily ever after/fairy tale ending is in reality taking care of some bad ass kids while Prince Charming's lazy butt is vegetating in front of the tv drinking a beer.

Oh Lol! I didn't really get it because it just seems like she's holding babies, the children aren't doing anything bad, the house isn't a mess... *shrugs* I was more concerned with the poorly furnished house! :lol:

Probably not bad kids but a handful. Just a lot of work with no help so no fairy tale endings.
