I find that being someone who blogs/vlogs natural hair, it can be hard to be completely honest about the negative emotions that come along with natural hair sometimes. I wish I could say that after four and a half years, everyday is a “perfect” hair day! It is so easy to shake my hair in front of a camera for Youtube and show the amazing growth progress, but what about those days when I just don’t want to deal with it. Those days when I feel a little frustrated and you know what I also may feel a little ugly! Yup, I said it! Now, this is not a question of my self esteem or confidence, because I think I am oh so fabulous, but because my hair is doing the complete opposite of what I want it do.
4 Simple Tips To Stay Motivated Throughout Your Natural Hair Journey
Why Did You Go Natural
Always remember why you made the decision to go natural. How important is it to you? I made the decision to go natural, because my hair was literally falling out of my head. I struggled with retaining length most of my life, and I can’t imagine going back to that place.
The Great Things About Being Natural
Even with the struggles, I have had so much success with my journey. I’ve been able to grow my hair to a length that I never thought was possible. I have had so much fun with unique hairstyles. It is also a great feeling when you stand out in the crowd!
Sometimes it is best to just give your hair a break. Bantu knot outs, twist outs, braids outs are gorgeous hairstyles, but sometimes putting the hair up in a cute high bun is a great option to style and go. Two strand twist, braids, sew ins, wigs are also great options!
