Need Help Fast
Okay! I have gone natural by simply wearing sew ins for the last year. The last time I took it down I cut off all of the permed ends. Now, this upcoming weekend I want to be brave enough to wear "my hair" but I have no clue where to start. I have simply been washing and putting a basic conditioner on my hair and getting it rebraided. Therefore, I am at a complete lost. I need a list of products, any advice, and easy styles that can be recommended..
Take the hair types quiz to figure out your hair type. That will lead you to styles and products which may help. Also, once you've done that, find YouTubers with your hair type to follow. They may have videos on styling etc.For the record, I keep my hair in little braids overnight- not cornows, random plaits. The next morning, I undo them, and use the cut off leg an old pair of tights/pantyhose (usually black or brown), to make a puff with my hair which I undo and comb out. I secure the tie with two pins. In the video below, she sprays her hair with water first- for goodness sake don't do that if you want to keep your hair stretched from the night before!
For styling, it depends on how long your hair is. What's your texture? - finger coils-mohawk on braidout- twists- bantu knotsthese styles are very simple, you can find out how to do them via youtube videos. they are just to define your hair and give you a style that should last.It's good to have at least one good oil, my favorites are:-jojoba-castorShampoo and Conditioners I recommend:-Silkience Silky Smooth Conditioner-Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Shampoo and Conditioner-Suave Naturals Shampoo-Tresemme Smooth and Silky ConditionerGet a good leave in conditioner:-African Pride Shea Butter Miracle leave In Conditioner-Cantu Shea Butter Leave In ConditionerGet some good gel and curl cream to define your curls:-ecostyle gel-texture my way curl keeper moisturizing hair lotion- African Pride Shea Butter Miracle Bouncy Curls Pudding-Wash your here once or twice a week. I wash every friday-Always oil your scalp, I oil my scalp in the morning and before bed-Make it a habit of braiding your hair and leaving it in for atleast 2 months at a time so your hair can grow without being overworked with daily styling. your hair will grow faster this way-You can do protein treatments once a month but be careful to watch how your hair reacts because too much can cause your hair to fall out-Stay away from the texturizers, you're not natural if you're using chemicals like that, and they can also damage your hairThis has worked for me, my hair has grown so much since I went natural, hope I helped
