I have been talking about trying some natural hair styles for a year and I NEVER stepped out and tried any. My fear of looking wild because I have so much hair is one of the things holding me back. Also, I have not done my own hair in at least 3 years if not more. By this I mean, I have not washed, blow dried or pressed/flat ironed my own hair. I am not good at getting it bone straight so I don’t waste my time trying anymore. I would LOVE to be free of getting my hair pressed every 3 weeks and trying to maintain the straight texture until I see my stylist again. I love wearing my hair pressed but with summer coming and me exercising more, there has to be a better style than a wrap. I have never had a perm but I have been a slave to the pressing comb my whole 28 years of life. Its time to get free!! LOL
My coworker shared a website with me that I will checkout http://www.healthyhairjourney.com Currently, I don’t put any products in my hair except a little oil when it gets dry. I wrap it at night and comb it and go each morning. This is another reason that has hindered me from trying a new style; my current style is boring BUT effortless. I don’t have to spend lots of time in the mirror and I don’t have to spend lots of money on products.
So if I get some assistance from ladies on what to do, where to go and how to do it, I WILL step out and try the natural look. God has blessed me with a full head of healthy hair and I want to see what types of creative styles I can do with it!! I wore my hair in a blow dried and wild with a head band last Thursday before I got braids and I really liked it. The wind was blowing in my hair and I didn’t have to worry about sweating out my press! I was honestly nervous about going out in public without my hair pressed, which is sad. Once I was out, the nervous feels started to away and I felt comfortable. I would like to feel comfortable and confident with a new natural look.
Questions for the ladies who wear their hair natural.
1) Where do you get your hair style ideas from?
2) What products do you use?
3) When you first started wearing it natural, were you nervous to step out and try something new?
4) What advice do you have for me to get started?
Thanks ladies in advance for your help!!
