Were Your Friends And Relations Supportive?
Where do your home is? How is the natural locks community there? Well right now, I reside in Sweden, but before I lived in Austria and Nigeria. In every three countries there weren’t too many natural heard sisters that I saw while i first moved, but now in Stockholm, I am seeing increasingly more ladies embrace Natural hair. Natural hair is overtaking! When and why did you decide to go natural? Ok, well, I have been natural on and off for a genuine number of years, I wasn’t really into locks very much growing up, therefore i would go weeks with out a touch up or could have my locks in braids.
But I must say i decided to be completely natural in 09, after my third attempt. My decision was to see it through and observe how long I possibly could go with my hair.Being natural is more than simply locks now, I am taking better care of my epidermis, my own body. I eat healthier, I drink healthier,I meditate, I exercise.I have used steps to rid the negative from my life. My spirit is more alive than better now.
I have a whole new Holistic approach to me life. Were your friends and family supportive? If not, were you in a position to move forward? Some stuff has been done by me through the years to my hair – dyed red; Black/Blue; some funky light brownish color, leave home with shoulder size care and get back with a Toni Braxton – Breathe again, lower! So its wasn’t such a shock to the people who know me, also I had been residing in a foreign country so the majority of my friends back didn’t really know what I had fashioned done. In conditions of support, the first 2 times I Big Chopped ( I shaved my mind) my sister achieved it beside me.
So I had fashioned somebody in crime. I have now shaved my mind three times since 07 and 09 was my last time. What’s your current locks regular? Well, my hair and I are in odds, see after i started with my TWA in Nigeria, I’d alternate with braids and cornrows and leave it only.
Just washing every other week and a deep condition once i felt enjoy it. This did wonders for my locks. Are you experiencing any locks goals? What steps are you taking to achieve them? Well,lol, my original goal was to have lovely curly hair, but that ain’t in the script now any more hahhahahah.
- Gently clean on bronzer quickly and lightly
- 5 years back from UK
- Up to ½ x teaspoon Cocoa Powder (amount depends upon desired color)
- Remove blackheads with honey
- Exfoliation is the key
- Favorite amount 1- CoverGirl Intense Shadow Blast (in Bulletproof Beige)
- Cinnamic aldehyde
So my goal is overall healthy hair in what ever state she expands. I am targeting bra strap size for this calendar year and waist for next season. From December 09 till March 2011 I didn’t trim my hair. After March, I simply lately did some dusting of the ends in June.
What is your fav go- to style for your natural locks? Tell us how you achieve it? Well when my hair decides hold a style, I used to love wash n go’s with some gel in it. Also, my locks can be temperamental with a two strand twist. Sometimes it shall keep a twist for a couple of days and then other times only one night. Right now, I simply twisted my hair yesterday, so will see how she likes this.
Apart from that,I haven’t really experimented a lot with my hair, I have kept things simple. Not long ago i learned to do my very own braids with extensions and Individual hair. So I like to do that.Its an activity. A ever learning always changing process. I am a wavy, very little kinky, not so much coily, even less curly plus some parts straight natural girl.
