MY CURLY DIARIES

Hey there curlies!! I know it’s been such a long time since I did one of these, but I’m glad I’m back. I think when it comes to natural hair care its well taken in visually, that’s why I moved to posting my journey on My you Tube Channel, https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBi7L8qoGmOqVH4jlcIDZr0WD4DVzWAzE .

The first thing you need to know about your natural hair is its porosity, density and texture so that you can know what method suits best for you. For me having high porosity meaning my hair dries out pretty fast means I need to use the LOC method and that is , Leave in Conditioner/liquid, Oil and Cream to seal in moisture and have perfect retention.

I love using water when the leave in conditioner isn’t available and my hair works well with natural oils like olive oil, jojoba oil, black seed oil, almond oil and I’ve recently been in love with this fine coconut oil from Kentaste. 

The goal in your natural hair journey shouldn’t be length. Growth is more important. Listen to your hair and feed it with what works best for it. One mistake we make is religiously following natural hair bloggers or you tubers but the thing is they only shed some light on what works for them, so the best thing to do is apply the tips and find your own regimen. That is key.

Also as curlies, we know that wash days are an important step in our natural hair journey so find products that work with you best. I have been using Dove products for the past few months and I do love how the shampoo makes my scalp feel fresh and not dry. A plus is the scent and I also love how it easily foams hence you don’t need to use too much product. The conditioner in itself is life, but I want to try out a couple more products and I will surely share my views.

Another misconception is about refraining from products that have sulphate in them. My curling cream from Creme of Nature has no sulphates, no parabens, no mineral oils and no petrolatum. The thing is , you can use products with sulphate in them, but sparingly. They are detergents and usually used in making of shampoo, perfect when your hair has loads of product build up. The only down side is that some might dry your hair and scalp out leaving you prone to breakage , they wash out the good oils out of your hair and increase friziness. With that said some companies make sure they combine hair friendly shampoos so just make sure you check the ingredients and read reviews before using them.

That’s it for today curlies!! Hope to see you soon on my Youtube channel, I post every Friday so defo subscribe and be on the look out. I hope you learnt a little something, defo share your views on this and I’ll see you in my next post!

xx

Sincerely,Didi
