Shrinkage!!!

Now for those of you ladies who are rocking the natural hair and LOVING IT there is a factor of natural hair that some of you ladies don’t like what so ever SHRINKAGE!!!

Yes the dreaded word which you either embrace or try to prevent (sometimes impossible). To be honest though I love it and it amazes me how my hair can go from shoulder length to just under my ear, with not a pair of scissors in sight is AMAZEBALLS!! I think the reason why some natural haired ladies aren’t loving shrinkage is because the whole having long hair aspect is highly focused on these days.

PREVENTION

So for yall who are running scared there are ways to prevent or should I say alter the shrinkage.

1. Twists outs – This is my fave style and a MUST, I do this simply because my hair is easier to maintain and lasts longer. In my opinion this is best done when your hair is wet/damp this is because the hair is easy to manipulate and less frizz will form. If you want smaller more defined curls do small twists, if you want bigger curls but still defined do big twists. Once twisted it is good to keep them in overnight or over the course of a day. The longer you leave them the more defined they will be. Once taken out If you retwist your hair at night the hair will become more and more stretched over a few days.

2. Flat twist – These are also another one of my faves as they give definition from the root, so if you have straight areas flat twist are good to form a curl pattern on these areas.

3. Braid out – This is the same concept as a twist out but instead you braid the hair. A braid out gives a more relaxed looser curl and not as much definition. This is a good method/style to do if you don’t like tight curls and want your hair even more stretched.

4. Blow dryer – This is another method which I am not much of a fan of but it may work wonders for you. The blow dry method involves using a blow dryer to apply heat at the roots whilst pulling the hair out gently. This should elongate the curls for a more stretched out look.

For the ladies who wash and go (I don’t as my hair freaks out) shrinkage will be the norm to you. If you wash and go but don’t want shrinkage this is when you can use the blow dry method.

So ladies don’t run and hide from it face it head on..

Our hair is amazing its our crown so say it loud and wear it PROUD!!

My Hair Journey/History!!

This major subject has been on my mind for quite some time now and I thought it was about time for me to address my hair story and my thoughts on my hair past.

I was born a light skinned, light brown curly haired button nosed girl. I know I was a curly top and my hair was silky and light but as you know the afro always kicks in at some point. I never really remember my hair say under the age of about 7-8 I think its because I wasn’t a girly girl and I just wasn’t bothered.

Staple Hair Products (I hope so)

I thought it was about time I gave you a lil low down on my staple products at the moment. Even though I am still (6 months later) fine tuning my tried and true, I have already found a few gems that are here to stay.

Curls Unleashed Lavish in Lather Sulphate Shampoo – This shampoo right here is the love of my life from the first time I touched her I knew she was going to be mine (yes I am still talking about shampoo).  This is my FAVE well my only shampoo I don’t think I can give this shampoo enough props. I’m telling you I have never used a shampoo that moisturises so much that you don’t need to follow up with a conditioner, detangles with a few strokes of my fingers and cleans my my hair without stripping. This shampoo does lather up quite a bit but I do like this as I feel my hair is getting a good clean. This shampoo which I have already done a review on I would reckon to any curly!

Denman Brush – THIS BRUSH IS A MUST believe it or not it defines your curls nicely with a few strokes. The best time to use this brush is when your hair is wet loaded with product. Hands down this beats the wide tooth comb any day.

Coconut Oil – I love me some coconut oil and ever since I got this BARGAIN of buy a tub get one for a penny at Holland & Barrett I was sold sold sold. The only things that put me off about this oil is that it is hard and you can’t really pour it. But as soon as it goes in your hand its melts instantly and it goes onto your hair nicely. Now if my research is correct most oils are made of BIG molecules so they just coat the hair and act as a barrier to lock in moisture? Coconut Oil the molecules are smaller so they can actually penetrate the hair which is bonus.

So for now the journey continues hopefully ill be back soon with more tried and trues!!!

Live it, try it, use it and don’t waste it!!
