Journey To Waist Length – Four Simple Rules

The name of the hair game for me is almost always Keep It Simple! My journey to waist length hair will not be achieved if I have to practice anything complicated. I have watched and observed many of my own hair crushes and they have one thing in common is they are creatures of simplicity and their hair has thanked them for it.

The start of my simple journey began when I decided to learn what is best for my strands rather than emulate the routines of other curlies. That does not mean that I no longer learn from the experiences of others, but it means that I truly listen to my hair, find out its likes and dislikes based on what I have learned so far.

Yep! I find that my hair is high porosity so holding on to moisture has been a problem. There is no way I can use just water and oils I need something heavy to strong arm that moisture into my hair LOL! In the past African Pride grease with all the herbs in it, or Indian Hemp were most effective at keeping moisture in. I haven’t used them since the start of my HHJ. I got a sample of Sweet Mimosa Butter from HennaSooq though and my hair is just eating this stuff up! I am going to do a little experiment and see what happens.

Hello.
I have just learned that I have low porosity hair.
It’s very dry, so when I add oils they just lay on top of the hair. It doesn’t matter if I massage them into my scalp on wet or dry hair.
Can anyone please advise me on what I should do?
I’m trying to nurse my hair back to health.
I’ve been natural since 2003. My hair was coming out in strands for the last two years because I was going through a long term illness. Now that things are looking up, I’m going to have to cut my hair to even it out – I mean a big chop.
Thank you.

Colette, I have low porosity hair also. I find that applying my products with heat helps. I shampoo and conditioner once a week with sulfate and silicone free products. I always deep condition with heat, and rinse with warm water, then apply leave-in and styling products on wet or damp hair. Search You Tube for other low porosity naturals for more tips. Good luck!

I stopped buying deep conditioners too and just make one with banana, olive oil, honey and greek yogurt. My hair feels (and smells) much better after I use it.

Everything does not work for everybody but this article is on to something. As a professional I will say that our hair grows best when it’s moisturized and left alone. Whether that be in a protective style or left natural. Over manipulation and/or dryness WILL stunt hair growth and even cause breakage.

She recommends Co washing your hair EVERY day. Surely that’s not healthy for your hair!!!

Markisha Tingle
