This marks my first full week with my natural hair and it has already been a very interesting journey! I surprisingly haven't missed my long hair that much. Granted, there are moments that I feel like a boy with boobs, but that phases in and out....I am mainly just amazed with my curl pattern and individual texture, which I am already falling in love with.
I've also become obsessed with YouTube's natural hair guru's and researching all the amazing products available! And there are a TON of products available ya'll. Its almost overwhelming because I still don't know what I'm doing, but luckily I have amazing people around me who have made the transition as well, so I'm not going in this totally blind.
Having said that I have already started a "collection" of products that I am in love with. Check them out below:
1. Kinky-Curly: Knot Today Leave In Conditioner
2. Trader Joe's Tea Tree Triangle Shampoo and Conditioner
3. Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque
4. As I Am Coconut Co-Wash
5. Jamaican Black Caster Oil
6. ECO Gel
7. Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie
The Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner are both from Trader Joe's but everything else can be found at Sally's or Target.
So that's my product overload thus far! I think the biggest thing for me is learning what my hair likes and what it responds too. Another thing that has become very important to me since making this life change is using all natural products. No sulfates. No parabens. Nothing. This "care" is a lot more than what I was use to with both weave and chemically processed hair so I like trying out new things and I would love to hear what some of my natural followers are using!
