My Natural Hair Journey #3: Brittany

My name is Brittany and I have been natural for 2 years now.

I stopped putting perms in my head because my hair was breaking out, I was tired of wasting money and I wanted curly hair. Going natural was the best decision I could ever make. My hair has grown a lot during these two years.

I love the versatility of my natural hair. Three times out of the year I will flat iron it but that is it. The rest of the time I will flat twist it.

I have tried to do Bantu knots, or roller sets but hair just comes out looking a mess. I don't use any type of pills to help make my hair grow I just use the LOC method. My favorite products are coconut oil, cantu leave in conditioner, lotta body setting lotion and lotta body curl and style milk. I am still trying to find the right products for my hair. As a natural I had no idea of the maintenance to maintain it.

I flat twist it daily and every now and then I will wear an afro. I think I have 3 different curl patterns but I love my curls. I get a lot of compliments on my worst hair days lol.

Going Natural Wasn't Always Easy

My first year was the hardest I contemplated perming my hair several times.my natural hair journey I would go online looking for natural hairstyles and try them only for them to not work for me and that became extremely frustrating.

Going natural wasn't the easiest thing at because people that were use to seeing me with straight, long, uneven not healthy hair were negative.

It brought my self esteem down but I am over that now and so are they. I love my different curl patterns and I wouldn't change a thing about my hair. If anyone knows good moisturizers please let me know.

My hair still has a dry look to it and I don't know how to fix that. Love the skin your in and your curl pattern. Don't give up on your natural hair journey.

How to Transition From Relaxed to Natural Hair In 7 Steps

Transitioning from relaxed to natural hair when beginning your natural hair journey is a common experience.

To go from permed to natural hair, you have two options: Transitioning or The Big Chop. Which one you choose is entirely up to you. There's no textbook right way or wrong way to begin your natural hair journey. It doesn’t matter how you get there, it's about getting there and doing what you're most comfortable with doing.

The transition from relaxed hair to natural hair can be a challenge - sometimes dealing with split ends, odd curly bits, and some hair breakage. But don't give up, it's not called a "journey" for nothing, all journeys have some bumps in the road. But rest assured that your hair is on a route to recovery. Getting back to your "natural" beauty is a beautiful thing and an interesting road to self discovery.

What Does Transitioning From Relaxed to Natural Hair Mean?

Like we talked about earlier, transitioning is a way to avoid cutting all of your hair off, doing "The Big Chop" as it is called.

Transitionintransitioning from relaxed to natural hairg your hair to natural is the process of eliminating all chemical treatments and allowing your natural hair to grow out while gradually trimming the chemically-processed ends away. It takes time and patience but for many women it is worth the wait because they may be uncomfortable big chopping.

Most women who transition to natural hair slowly trim their relaxed ends away as they grow the relaxer/perm out of their hair, this also helps to keep breakage manageable and it gives your hair a more healthy appearance.

Pros of Transitioning From Relaxed to Natural Hair :

  • You have the time to learn about your particular hair type.
  • If you are not comfortable with short hair, then you can avoid that adjustment period, and avoid the wait of growing your hair back out.
  • During transitioning you have the time to perfect your hair styling skills.

Cons of Transitioning From Relaxed to Natural Hair :

  • The texture of your hair will not be consistent: which means if you decide to wear your hair in a braid out or twist out style the root of your hair might be curly while your ends will be bone straight (To avoid this simply roll the ends of your hair with rods or rollers).
  • The process of transitioning takes longer than if you just did “the big chop”.

How to Transition From Relaxed to Natural Hair In 7 Steps

Transitioning from Relaxed to Natural Hair Rule #1

Keep your hair hydrated. The biggest struggle with transitioning your hair is preventing breakage due to dryness and damage. Do what you can to keep your hair conditioned and fully hydrated by using a conditioner on a regular basis. Every night before bed, thoroughly moisturize your hair with either coconut oil or olive oil and let it soak in good for 30 minutes to 1 hour. This will help replenish your hair with nutrients that will strengthen the demarcation line (the part of the hair where the transition is happening).

  • When you wash your hair, add a little conditioner to your strands prior to shampooing. This will help to keep the shampoo from stripping all the moisture. Then, condition as usual.
  • Consider using a leave-in conditioner for your hair during the day. Apply some to your hair before you style it, paying careful attention to the demarcation line.

Transitioning from Relaxed to Natural Hair Rule #2

Use a deep conditioner regularly. Deep conditioning treatments take moisturizing your hair to the next level. Although deep conditioners are usually only used once a month or so, you need to do it more often when transitioning from relaxed to natural hair. Purchase a deep-conditioning treatment for naturals and apply it to your hair at least once every 7 days. Or if you have the money to do so, you can go to the hair salon once a week and get deep-conditioning treatments regularly.

  • Follow the bottle instructions for your deep conditioner.
  • If your money is low, another great alternative to a deep conditioner is using mayonnaise. Although it sounds a little gross, it can work wonders on adding moisture to your hair. Apply it to your hair once a week for 30 minutes to an hour.
  • If you decide to have a professional deep condition your hair, try looking for someone who specializes in transitioning hair. They’ll be able to provide you with products and services designed specifically to meet your needs.

Transitioning from Relaxed to Natural Hair Rule #3

Don't put heat on your hair, it's a natural hair killer. In general, hot tools should be avoided if you’re trying to protect your hair. Using curling irons, flat irons, and blow driers can stress your hair and cause breakage, specifically at the line of demarcation. While transitioning your hair, do all that you can to allow it to be as natural as possible. Avoid hot tools, and if necessary, limit their use to only one day a week at most.

  • If you absolutely must use hot tools, keep them away from the demarcation line and avoid using them on your roots where your natural grow-out is forming.

 

Transitioning from Relaxed to Natural Hair Rule #4

Limit the amount of times you wash your hair. This goes hand in hand with adding moisture to your hair; washing your hair frequently strips your hair of its natural oils that help keep it strong. So limit hair washing and some women have had great success with co-washing natural hair. If you’re able, only wash your hair once every 7-8 days so that there is plenty of time for your natural oils to thoroughly coat each strand of hair and bring them to life.

Transitioning from Relaxed to Natural Hair Rule #5

Promote hair growth with supplements. Maintaining your vitamins and minerals is important to general health (in addition to hair health), but taking certain supplements can strengthen your hair and speed up hair growth super fast. Doctors recommend taking biotin or viviscal (read reviews for viviscal here...)- these are supplements used specifically for promoting hair and nail growth.

Additionally, making sure you have enough vitamin D and vitamin A will help your hair too.

Transitioning from Relaxed to Natural Hair Rule #6

Avoid putting chemicals in your hair. Although it may seem like a given, you to stay away from all perms and hair relaxers when trying to transition your hair. In addition, stay away from hair dyes and bleach, as these cause significant damage to your hair, causing it to break and become frizzy. Look for all natural alternatives to chemicals you typically use, as these will be much safer on your scalp and strands than harsh chemicals are.

That's It!

You now know exactly how to transition from relaxed hair to natural while beginning natural hair journeys. It's a truly beautiful thing to see the amazing styles and natural beauty on display. Please feel free to ask more questions of other natural in the Natural Hair Lovers - BlackHairOMG Group!

Super-Mom Creates Black Dolls With Natural Hair

When Angelica Sweeting heard her young daughter wishing for blonde hair and white skin similar to her doll's, she decided to create "The Angelica Doll" for little girls with curly hair, wider noses, and fuller lips.

The doll comes with hair that you can twist and knot just like real-life natural hair.

Sweeting's Naturally Perfect Dolls Kickstarter campaign has already raised $23,000 of the $25,000 needed to launch production of the doll, which promotes positive beauty ideals and self-acceptance for young girls.

Sweeting and her daughters tested The Angelica Doll's hair for eight months with common natural hair practices, such as twisting, bantu knotting, and curling, to make sure little girls could style and wash their doll's hair exactly how they would do their own.

Black Dolls With Natural Hair


Lee's Article Highlights:

♦ First off, I want to to stress the importance of supporting Angelica's business. If you have the means to do so you can help her get these dolls made for thousands of little girls by contributing to her kickstarter campaign at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/angelica/the-angelica-doll-a-natural-hair-doll-for-young-gi and hey, I know it's hard out here on these skreets (yeah, I said SKREETS), so if you don't have money to help her get these dolls made then just share this article. Someone else who reads this might contribute and it will be because you let them know about it through sharing this story.

♦ I always love products like these and BlackHairOMG is known for promoting these kinds of businesses and products because they make a difference, I just recently wrote about the coloring book for natural hair kids. When children grow up rarely seeing a positive reflection of themselves in the things that they are entertained by it has a negative psychological effect.

Angelica's daughter thought that the standard of being beautiful was the dolls that she played with and nothing else. Little girls adore their dolls and so she began to adore what she was not and undervalue what and who she is. It's not a conscientious choice she made, it is the mental conditioning that comes from being exposed only to what is the opposite of yourself and being told that it's the most precious thing without seeing any alternatives. Natural hair dolls gives the girls a chance to see beautiful representations of themselves.

♦ This serves as a lesson to myself and you as well as far as business goes too. When you see something missing, something that is needed... MAKE IT. It's much more effective than wishing and hoping for something and it's a great opportunity to build a business, make money while giving people something they need and want. More people need to have the entrepreneurial spirit like Angelica. I'm supporting her, I hope you will too.

Curly Kids Coloring Book - Natural Hair Styles For Kids

Curl Centric has created a new natural hair styles for kids coloring book to give children a positive portrayal of curly-haired people, so they don’t feel isolated by one of their defining features.

Unfortunately, kinky curly hair is often considered a nuisance for those who have it, but its true potential is far more varied than straight hair can be. Unfortunately for curly-haired children, their minority status can see them subject to bullying and derision. As such, it is important that this is counterbalanced with positive messages.

Because the media can't be counted on to portray curly hair in a positive light, people have been left looking for alternatives, and Curl Centric has provided one. They have just published a new Natural Hair Coloring Book for children with curly hair.

The Curly Kids Coloring Book is a new product, and was created because Curl Centric understands the importance of representation. It is important for little girls with textured hair to see images that look like them. The coloring book features more than thirty different images, including action shots, mermaids, princesses and ballerinas with natural hair.

The girls in the coloring books have also arranged their hair in a variety of styles that range from cornrow braids, puffs, two strand twists, bantu knots, wash and gos, locs and many more, to show girls with curly hair the amazing potential their hair has to be defined and redefined.

A spokesperson for Curl Centric explained, “Those with naturally curly hair in the media tend to straighten it, leaving little girls without role models. The coloring book is designed to fill that void and offset the lack of representation. This is just the beginning however, and showing girls it’s possibly to have a curly-haired princess or action hero will open them up to a world of possibilities for their own hair, many of which can be found on our website. The book is available now at Amazon for $5.99.


Lee's Article Highlights:

  • I wholeheartedly agree with what Curl Centric is doing, they realize that little girls need to see themselves and associate representations of themselves as something pleasant and positive. Natural hair styles for kids is something to be proud of and they need to know that as they grow up. I look forward to seeing more and more products like this in the future, they are long overdue.
  • If you think that products like this are important, you need to show your support and let others know about it too. Many positive products die on the shelf because they don't get the same level of attention as less-valuable products that get promoted.
  • The Curly Kids Coloring Book contains more than 30 coloring pages for little girls. The coloring book features a wide variety of natural hair styles for kids, the little girls are wearing natural hair buns, puffs, braids, afros (or low styles), updos, twist-outs, and bantu-knots. Get the colored pencils, crayons, water colors and makers ready. The coloring book is recommended for children age 1 year and older.

Author Zimkhitha Sulelo's Hair Journey & Favorite Products

Three years ago I did the big chop and started my natural hair journey. It wasn't planned and unlike a lot of unplanned things, cutting my hair turned out to be the best decision I have ever made.

While I watched my hair grow, something amazing happened.

I fell in love with my natural hair again which I haven't really been since my first relaxer. It was thick and had a healthy natural glow. I realized that I have been paying good money to achieve similar results without any success.

If someone told me all I needed was a pair of scissors, and a brave hair stylist who wouldn't argue against the big chop, I would have done it years ago.

It has been an interesting journey and I had to learn to be patient with my hair. Hair growth does not happen overnight and hair envy is a killer.

Go to those YouTube channels for inspiration, but don't expect to achieve the same hair growth because we all have different hair types.

Here are my top 5 products that have been keeping my hair looking good.

1. Water

This might come as a surprise for some, but it is the most important for hair growth. Natural hair can be very dry at times, so, moisturize, moisturize and moisturize. Make sure that your natural hair products are water-based for added moisture. Read those labels like you would read food labels.

To make sure that my hair gets enough moisture I mix water with olive oil and spray m

y hair regularly before using any other hairspray. I choose olive oil because it is readily available in my kitchen, but there are so many good natural oils out there to pick from.

2. Tresemme Naturals Conditioner

Naturals hunt for a good conditioner like it's gold, because shampoo is a bare necessity but a really good conditioner is a life-saver. With this conditioner the packaging grabbed me and I think the word NATURALS written in bold had something to do with it. On close inspection it got even better.

It's silicone free which means my hair will not be left sticky and dull. And if you are into organic foods, you will be happy to know that this conditioner has organic orange extracts. It smells like citrus heaven too. When I am feeling too lazy to wash my hair I think of this as my reward for doing it anyway.

3. ORS Hair Fertilizer

After a protective hairstyle I find that my hair gets very dry and before I do anything I use this hair fertilizer and gently comb it out from top then roots to avoid further hair loss. My water bottle with olive oil is never too far away and I spray it whenever I feel like its needed. This hair fertilizer is water based, so it's perfect for dry hair.

4. Dark and Lovely Night Wrap Cream

I have used Dark and Lovely products all my life and when I decided to go natural I didn't find anything suitable for my hair. So you can imagine my surprise when I saw this night wrap cream. I inspected it suspiciously because it looked so much like a relaxer tub, but anything with Amla Oil, is good to me. I decided to give it a try. I just love how my hair feels in the morning. It looks soft and has a healthy shine that makes the night wrap ritual worth it. I also use it when I am twisting my hair just to seal in the moisture.

5. ORS Olive Oil Spray

This is the only spray in a can that gives the instant healthy shine for my protective styles with a smell that I can tolerate. I used to use two different hairsprays, one for a healthy shine and one to mask the smell till I found this one. I am sure my pillows are happy too.

A lot of people are going natural these days and there are a lot of miracle products out there, but you can't keep buying new products. It's good to try new products, in fact its a necessity but always stick to the products that keep your hair looking healthy and strong. It's all about good healthy hair after all.

Curly Nikki's "Better Than Good Hair" Book Gets Rave Reviews - 4.5 Stars

The fresh new handbook on how to achieve and maintain stylish natural hair, from one of the savviest and most revered expert on coils and curls

These days there's a revolution going on. A natural hair revolution...

Relaxers are out. Weaves are so yesterday.

Tired of damage from expensive chemical treatments and artificial enhancers, women of color are going natural thanks to many natural hair enthusiasts and supporters, one of these people is Nikki Walton of CurlyNikki.com, the natural hair blogger and online hair therapy expert.

In Better Than Good Hair, this gifted "cblackhairomg - Lee torrey - curly nikkiurl whisperer" educates women on how to transition from relaxed to completely natural hair, with advice and styles for every length—from Fierce Braid-and-Curls to Fancy Faux Buns.

She also counsels those considering the "big chop"—cutting it all off at once to sport a bold and beautiful "teeny weeny afro." Here, too, is essential guidance for parents of mixed-race children dealing with new and unfamiliar hair textures and styles.


Lee's Review Highlights: First off, I love everything about Curly Nikki. She's a beautiful and brilliant businesswoman who cares about her readers. To see her success makes me proud. So when I saw HUNDREDS of amazing reviews for her "Better Than Good Hair" book I was pretty geeked for her. Out of 260+ real person reviews, she only has 4 "haters"(people that gave her book 1 star), most of her readers are loving the book. In my opinion, you get more scientific and in-depth info from "The Science of Black Hair" book from Audrey Davis-Sivasothy but Curly Nikki delivers more entertainment value. I'll share some of the customer reviews below...

5-Star Reviews from real customers... (5 out of 169 comments)

Positive customer review from Places2Love -

  • The Quintessential Kinky/Curly Encyclopedia: Whether you are an inquisitive newly natural beauty or a natural hair expert/goddess looking to give your friends some sound advice, Better Than Good Hair is it! There are great features from Nikki AND many of the hair bloggers and youtubers that the natural experts will be familiar with and the newcomers will glean from. I was discouraged when I first saw the reviews that said this book was just like the website (and I almost did not buy it). But in actuality the layout, conciseness, and illustrations make this a very user-friendly, quickly accessible MANUAL for readers of all ages, transcending just a website that can take hours upon hours to search. Moreover, it should be comforting to the natural hair experts that the quality hair principles you have experimented with and learned by trial and error are encapsulated in one handy reference guide. I just hope updated editions will be printed every few years :-). As a bonus, Kim Wayans adds a hilarious and fitting foreword that makes me wonder when her first book will be coming out because I would buy it!

Positive customer review from Chrishonda Davis -

  • Loved It: I love this book It really breaks down how to care for your natural hair during all stages, not only that, it doesn't ridicule those who prefer to relax or chemically alter their hair. It simply encourages you to take the right steps in caring for your hair no matter how you choose to wear it. Nikki helps you have confidence in your hair and yourself.

 

Positive customer review from SDO "Swtdrk1" -

  • It's Better Than Just a Hair Book: I have been natural for almost 4 years and what I love about this book the most is it is a guide, a source of information. As I was reading it I was nodding in agreement. I was laughing and I was intrigued. Even though I am going on 4 years I can always benefit from things I didn't know or haven't tried and that is what BTGH is for me...information that I don't have to keep in my head. I can simply go back to that section of the book. I had to get my daughter her own copy, because there will be no borrowing. 🙂

 

Positive customer review from Angela P. -

  • Very Informative & Good Read: I've been natural well over 5 years and was able to take away some very good tips from this book. Nikki never disappoints. She has been humble from the beginning and is extremely clear in the book that this is not about her, but about US. I bought 3 copies and plan to buy more just to give away. This is a Godsend for anyone considering to go natural or for anyone who has been natural for years. Not many hair books can accomplish that.

 

Positive customer review from Deborah Houston, TX -

  • Amazing Book: It took me a while to finish this book (not because it's not good) because I'm so busy. However, I finally finished the book and I just have one word AMAZING!! I was on the Curly Nikki forum for 2 years, and reading this book was just like being on the forum but better. I like the way the book was organized, the information provided, and how Nikki used ladies that contributed to the forum to share their natural experiences. I don't know maybe it was just me, but I felt connect to the book and the articles. I have been natural for 3+ years, and the content of this book is still relevant for all of my natural hair care needs!! I only wish it had been around when I BC'ed!! Love you Nikki please keep up the good work!! Deb

 

1- Star Reviews from real customers (2 out of 4 comments)

Negative customer review from Bobby Ray -

  • Don't Waste Your Money: I check this book out from my local library, save your money and do the same.
    All the information in the book can be found on CurlyNikki or any other natural hair blog. The photos & illustrations are in black and white and look cheap and tacky!
    The book covers big chopping, transitioning, 5yrs natural and natural kids but nothing for naturals that are regular folks with medium length strands. The book seem dated to me I wanted color photos of "hair porn" you get none of that.
    Bottom line dont waste your money, honey check it out if need be at your local library!

Negative customer review from Steph -

  • Over-rated: It does not address enough about people with fine hair. Glad I was able to support a black author though. (Author note: Even the Science of Black Hair book got 2 bad reviews out of 400, someone will always complain, that's life so take it for what it is. )

Hair Butter Review For Type 4b Hair Styles

I used this product to set my hair in twists, flat twists and braids on many occasions.

I thoroughly massaged my ends with this product to keep them from getting dry.

I used the entire jar up in under a month and was very upset that I had no more.

 


4b type hair butterEditor’s Note: Jenell Stewart from kinkycurlyme.com gives a helpful review as she always does, this time she reviewed a product that works very well for type 4b hair.

The natural hair care product is called Pura Body Naturals Cupuacu Hair, she tried the Tahitian Vanilla scent and the cost was $14 for 4 ounces. She does a good job of breaking down the pros and cons. Here are our article highlights:

  • Jenell felt that the price for only 4 ounces of hair butter was a bit high at $14.
  • Jenell has kinky curly coily type 4b hair, after using the hair butter her ends felt great and her twist out had great definition too.
  • The hair butter has a great Tahitian vanilla scent.
