Natural Hair Journey – March 2017 to November 2017


Hello naturalists! Welcome back to DeluxHair for another update on my natural hair journey! So the last post where I gave everyone the background on the beginning of my journey and how I ended up going natural with my hair. Picking up from where we left off in March of 2017, things have really really improved for me in managing my hair.

Since March 2017, the texture and length of my hair has improved. I see a lot more shrinkage now as well, but not in a bad way. My hair really seems to act as though it is a sponge. It absorbs a lot of water and moisturizers very fast. Breakage has decreased a lot, as I tend to my ends more now than before. My hairstyles have improved a lot as well. This was the most frustrating part of my natural hair journey in the beginning, figuring out which styles to do and when to do those particular styles as well.

Great news! I finished the No Heat Challenge in August!

As mentioned before, the No Heat Challenge is where you don’t use heat in your hair for a full year, 365 days. This includes all flat irons, curling irons, blow dryers, hooded dryers, and curling wands. This was a tough challenge in the beginning, but now I prefer no heat at all in my hair. I have gotten so used to my hair being curly and kinky, that I don’t think I would be comfortable with it being straight all the time now surprisingly. This is one part of my natural hair journey that I am very grateful for participating in. It taught me a lot of discipline along with setting me up with a schedule, or routine, for my hair. Of course, any remaining straight ends or damaged ends have been cut completely off revealing my true natural hair type being a mixture of 4A and 4C.

Since March, great things have been happening for DeluxHair as a whole as well! We have added many different affiliations to our growing list in which have enabled me to highlight better products and regimens for any natural ladies out there with 4A through 4C hair types. Our affiliations also include great savings for our readers as well! Check them out below:
