When I went natural, I thought that natural hair would be easier to care for.
Ummm – NO! I had experienced so much hair trauma with relaxers I just knew that when I went natural all those problems would go away. My hair would be strong – almost indestructible, and all I’d have to do is throw some oil on my scalp and keep it movin’. I was so wrong. Whether natural or relaxed, I had a difficult time with breakage and keeping my hair moisturized – and the key to a great looking natural is moisture and shine. Sounds simple to achieve those two things, but it’s not quite that simple and by no means easier than caring for relaxed hair.
