AFRICAN NATURAL HAIR TALK
I have been natural for over a decade now, for which I am very proud of!
As a pre-teen I had relaxed hair but I started to transition to natural hair in my early secondary school years.
Transitioning:
First things first, my hair was tough when I first stopped relaxing my hair! Transitioning is a strenuous
process and you need a special type of patience to keep you from running back to the “creamy crack” also known as relaxer when the going gets tough – which it most definitely will.
Now that I’ve cleared that up, let’s move onto the good part where I tell you how things got better
So, I overcame my transitioning woes by consistent protective styling; in my case that was cornrows (weaving) and single twists with my natural hair. Also, I did a bit of trial and error with hair products but eventually settled with:

  • Olive Oil Shampoo
  • Organics Olive Oil Deep Conditioner
  • Cantu Shea Butter

Now, I also have a home mixed recipe of hair products that I use twice a week (when I remember to) on my dry scalp as a moisturizer. It’s been a long standing family tradition which has proved very effective so I’ll list the names of the products I can remember lol:

  • Damatol or Virgin (Growth)
  • Sulfur 8 (yes I heard Sulfur is bad on the natural hair stratosphere, but it works for me, provides growth protein treatment)
  • Morgan’s Pomade (keeps hair dark)
  • Dr. Miracle’s Leave in Conditioner (Growth)
  • Dax (Shine/Growth)

The actual regimen:

  • Protective Style for 2-3weeks
  • Moisturize at least twice a week
  • Wash and deep condition between each style
  • Trim every 6 months to prevent split ends
  • Minimize heat appliance i.e. blow dryers
    and straighteners!

So yeah, that’s basically it! Feel free to
drop any questions in my email: info@elizabethtpeters.com and keep up with more hair style updates on my website at; www.ElizabethTPeters.com
