We’re now at http://www.lushfro.wordpress.com
We’ve grown so much that we had to create a better package now including Fashion, Lifestyle and more for all the amazing readers who’ve supported us. Thank you!
When I decided to go natural, I went online and got into the natural hair community where I started learning about things like pre poo, co wash, moisturizing & sealing, deep conditioning, coconut oil etc.
While most of these changed the way I looked at hair care and have helped me in my journey, some have;
* In the long run, gotten me tired
* Not just worked
* Been really overrated
And so on.
Before we start:
1) Please do remember that everybody’s hair is different. What doesn’t work for me might work for you.
2) I only wrote about routines I tried which didn’t work.
So here we go…..
Routines that don’t work for me
1) Co washing:
Co washing doesn’t work on my hair at all. It always seems to add more product rather than washing them away.
2) Deep Conditioning On Every Wash Day
To my hair and I, it isn’t necessary on every single wash day. I know my hair and she knows me, enough said.
3) Detangling In The Shower
Alright, the main reasons are
a) I usually wash my hair while having my bath & it’s annoying to just stand there detangling my 4c hair.
b) I’m usually too lazy 🙂
c) I prefer dry or slightly damp detangling to wet detangling.
4) Moisturizing Daily:
My hair’s mood changes constantly so I don’t stick to a particular regimen for long.
Moisturizing daily doesn’t always work for me. Some weeks, it’s a must, some weeks I don’t even moisturize.
5) Twisting Every Night
Braids are quicker and stretch out my hair more and I can get away with fewer braids.
You don’t have to follow any hair routine even if someone with your hair type is doing it. If it doesn’t work for you, please move on.
Everyone’s hair is different, you don’t have to feel frustrated because your isn’t doing what you see on YouTube. You just have to listen to your hair.
It’s all about trial and error.
Your hair is fabulous just the way it is….Coarse, fine, straight, coily, dry, greasy, thick, short etc.
