Natural Hair Transition with SheaMoisture

If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for some time, you would know all about my natural hair transition. I decided to go natural some months ago but I didn’t want to down the big chop route. So I had to grow out natural hair, while cutting off the dead hair tips gradually. It took a while but I am happy to say my hair is now fully natural.

I would be lying if I said growing my hair natural was a walk in the park. It wasn’t. Getting my hair to this stage has not been easy. It took a lot of hard work and determination to get here. And my hair is still a work in progress.

I felt like giving up so many times along the way. My hair is a 4C and it is very coarse, so it is hard to manage. However, but I am happy I didn’t. I am very confident with my hair now. I am show it off proudly and it is just growing like weed, which is amazing.

In my transition, I have used so many hair products. A few of them I won’t use again and many I would continue using. I recently came across the SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl and Shine Range. This range is great for my thick hair. I am loving it so far.

I am a huge fan of the SheaMoisture brand. If you scroll through my natural hair transition posts, you would see me raving about 1 SheaMoisture range or the other. The products are great for natural hair and I believe they have helped in my hair growth. This Coconut & Hibiscus Curl and Shine range is no exception. I love all the products in this range, especially the SheaMoisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, which I have used before. The products keep my hair clean and moisturised. I will be shopping this range in future.

You can get this products in Boots stores, Amazon, eBay and other beauty stores.

The Truth About Nappy Hair

The truth about nappy hair is that it is A LOT of hardwork maintaining it, but so worth it in the end. Growing up, my hair was natural and I hated it! It was hard coarse, thick, long and annoying. I didn’t know what to do with it, so I just ignored it. There were no blogs to read or vlogs to watch, to educate us on what to with our kinky hair. And there was hardly anyone around me with a natural hair too.

I cut my hair very short a number of times whilst growing up. It was easier to manage the nappy hair once it was short.

Some of the lucky ones are blessed with soft manageable hair, like my daughter. Her hair is so beautiful. It is soft and curly, and a lot more easier to manage than mine. People like me with the very coarse hair have to struggle to manage our natural hair, and when we can struggle no more, we texturise the damn thing! Back in the day, texturizing/relaxing the hair was the only way to manage it. If only I knew then what I know now, I would have kept my hair free of chemicals.

My hair has been chemical free for over 2 years now; the struggle has been real, but I won’t have it any other way. The reason I decided to stop using relaxers/texturisers on my hair was because my hair became extremely unhealthy and I needed to bring it back to life.

I like the way my hair is looking now, there is no more hair breakage and my hair is the healthiest I have seen in ages, but it comes with a lot of work.

The hair products I use can be expensive and my hair routine can be exhausting sometimes but I try to keep it simple. I have reviewed most of the hair products I use, so have a look at the review posts if you missed any of them.

If you are contemplating going your hair natural, I would advise you to go for. It is the best thing I ever did for my hair, and I am 99% certain you won’t regret it as long as you are happy and ready to put in the work. If you are not ready to dedicate the time and money, wait until you can.

Another thing I have noticed about the natural afro hair community is that it seems to be the norm to have a big chop. I didn’t have a big chop because I didn’t want the crop hair look and my nappy hair grew out just fine. It did take a while to fully transition but I got there in the end, so please don’t think you must have the big chop.

Are you rocking the nappy hair? How are you finding it? Please share your tips or secrets  in the comments section.
