I thought I knew my hair. As it turns out, I really don't. But in my journey to go natural, I've learned a ton. I know it's only been a couple of weeks since I made my special announcement
. But after researching hair stories, I'm finally starting to figure it all out.
In a recent post, I chatted about hair that hooks
. For some reason my hair has been curling and crinking up mid-strand. I couldn't understand why. However, another blogger by the name of Goldenangel graciously referred me to Hairlosophy
. I also stumbled across a detailed description and illustration on curlynikki.com
. Both sites break it all down. Hair that hooks, mid-strand knots, and tresses that crinkle all point to the same problem...not enough moisture. I used to add moisture by greasing my scalp and hair a few times a week. But ever since I started my television career, I've limited the amount of oils I use. Why you ask? Well, I noticed that the more hair grease meant the more weighed down my hair looked. It just didn't look or feel right.
Ditching the grease for a more bouncy look was a huge faux pa on my part. It's done nothing but damage my hair. With just one sweep of the comb through my hair, causes my mane to chip away. I know that it's normal to lose 100 to 150 strands each day, but I've been losing a lot more than that.
So, I'm on a mission to get to know my hair better. Right now it's screaming, "I'm thirsty!" Number one on my list is to combat dryness by regaining moisture. I have a few products that I'm trying out, and I'll be sure to share my newest hair care regimen. Stay tuned! Don't forget to dish yours! Sharing is caring!
How well do you know your hair?
