"Mini-Big-Chop" 17 months now Natural

New year and new me. It's kind of hard to start something new, especially when you are aware of the emotionally and physical phases you will go through. Nevertheless, making the decision to go natural has been one of the most rewarding and empowering journeys I've ever done. I can say I'm part of the "Natural Hair Community".  In this video I speak on this new experience and what's to come.

Six steps to start your Healthy Hair Journey

Here are six basic steps to start a healthy hair journey. 
1. Get a professional consultation to determine if your hair is damaged. If so, rectify the problem by going through a treatment. I.e. Trimmed ends, protein treatment etc. (Professional consultations are usually free).
2. Invest in products I.e. Shampoo (sulfate free), conditioner, moisturizers, oils etc.
3. Build a simple hair care regimen that's specific to your need. Wash weekly. If you're lacking moisture it may be necessary to do a deep conditioning treatment once a week, moisturize and seal your ends nightly etc. Maintain healthy ends by getting your ends trimmed/dusted when needed). Usually once your hair is on the road of recovery those things you wouldn't need to do as often. Your hair will let you know :-).
4. Low manipulating hairstyles.Tips: Rollersets, buns, cornrows etc.
5. Eat healthy! Eat lots of veggies, fruits,  and nuts. It's ok to use a hair vitamin supplement to give you a boost, but it is not necessary. 
6. Have patience. Healthy hair doesn't happen over night. You will have to be consistent and patient.
