I'm going natural...again.
I was natural for 7yrs of my 20's and after my hair became so much and too much to handle...I crossed back over to the "creamy crack".
So, here I am about to turn 38 in 9 days and I am going back to the wavy/kinky/mangled mane that is mine...naturally.
There's no pressure from anyone, anything or any particular trend or fashion...just the reality that I am tired of burning my scalp...especially when I only do it once or twice a year anyway. No need to half-ass it...might as well go balls to the wall.
I've been investigating products to use...and I've come up with something less expensive than what's on the market...my KITCHEN (no pun intended).
Instead of this frou frou, chi chi bullcrap being sold online and in stores...I'm gonna go ahead and use Pantene or Motions, like I am used to...and then condition bi-monthly with olive oil and/or mayo. In between washes is where I may spend a little cash. I saw a holding wax by Beautiful Curls and decided that between them and another one called Curls...I'd pay the $10-$12 every month or two for the daily maintenance. I just don't think it has to be that hard. Find ways to improvise. Check labels and see what the ingredients are and duplicate that at home for pennies less. MY kinda shit. lol I also plan to (from time to time) visit my Dominican chica, Jovita and let her lay my hair down ;)
I'll try and chronicle my crawl back to natural tresses...no picture as of yet...but, I'm sure once I'm entrenched in my transformation, I'll be more than happy to share my hair's ack right and cain't get right with you all.
Peace and Pomade~Kween
