THE BIG CHOP
Your confidence in this decision goes a long way in carrying you through the initial stages of the journey.
Although natural hair has now become more globally accepted, you may still notice a few glares and stares from the naysayers.
Don’t let negative comments or looks get to you, you are beautiful and you shouldn’t let anyone convince you otherwise. You may even find that family members may not be supportive of your decision. Lucky me, my husband and siblings were super supportive.
The more confident you are in your decision, the more others will respect it. So hold your head high and strut your new look! Don’t be surprised when the naysayers start asking questions about how to care for their hair as they watch your hair flourish.
Now that you’ve taken the first step to a wonderful hair experience, here are a few pointers to what to do next.
1. Develop a Simple Hair Maintenance Routine.
After big chopping, many naturals are shocked of the new hair texture. Caring for natural hair is a lot different from caring for relaxed strands. You may find that your hair needs a little more TLC than before and will actually require you to learn about your new hair texture in order to keep it healthy and maintained.
Don’t go overboard with buying all types of hair products. Start simple and perfect your routine to suit the needs of your hair. Stick to the basics such as a
- A PLANT-BASED OIL FOR SEALING
- STYLING PRODUCT OF YOUR CHOICE.
