I recently got a tapered hair cut and I am loving it. However, I have spent all of my childhood and early adulthood being afraid of my natural hair. I did not know how to manage my thick, healthy 4c black hair.
Fast forward, by the time I started wearing my hair natural again I fell in love with it, because I had the support of an amazing natural hair community. However, if I am being honest, though I now love my natural hair, I am still afraid of managing it. I guess this is why I relied on hair extensions to allow me to create many of my styles. I did not know enough about caring for my own hairtype. I will admit though, it’s better to have thick hair than thin hair!
I will still wear hair extensions from time to time, but not at the expense of losing the moisture in my natural hair.I decided to cut my hair to get rid of damaged ends and focus on regaining moisture.
I am truly in love with my hairtype, and I intend to learn everything about this beautiful hair that God blessed me with, once and for all.
Please join me on my renewed journey, as I learn once and for all how to truly maintain healthy, natural 4C type hair. The greatest challenge for my type of hair is dryness or lack of moisture. I recently did an Avocado Banana Moisture treatment and it was amazing for my hair.
Here is my recipe and Hair Vlog:
1 small ripe Avocado
1/2 Cup of Coconut Oil
1/4 Cup of Honey
Please ensure that this is treatment is properly mixed (no lumps) before applying treatment to hair.
Cowash hair and dry with clean pillow case of Tshirt. Apply moisture treatment to hair. Steam hair with plastic cap for 1 hour. (30-45 minutes under the dryer).
