The Natural hair movement has really taken flight. What are some of the typical misconceptions that you have noticed that the community needs to be educated about.
It’s is a wonderful thing to see the natural hair movement at a new height. Consumers are hungry for information and hair care companies are responding to the call for new products for curly girls. However, when there is an overload of too much misinformation consumers and DIYS’ers get confused and start just mixing everything together. Personal experiences are great but no two people have the same hair texture combination. It is important to remember that your natural hair journey is personal and unique to you. What may have work for one person may not be the best route for someone with a different hair texture.
Also cutting and coloring should be left to professionals. Everyone can style their hair with the right products, tools and patience. Cutting shapes and styles and creating custom colors and highlights should be done by a professional stylist who is trained and skilled in those specific areas.
Our audience includes transitioners who may sometimes find the process difficult, what advice would you give to a transitioner who might be feeling overwhelmed with dealing with two textures of hair?
The best advice for transitioners managing two textures is to wear protective styles until you’re ready to cut the relaxer off. That may take one to two years if you’re looking for natural longer hair. Transitioning can be a challenge, but a little patience and the proper information about your specific hair texture, and style options will make the process manageable.
