Why do I feel Ati would see my post title and just faint...hahahaha. Please read the post first o before we all faint. Hello mi boos. No owanbe download today because I don't go for owanbes anymore *sad face*. My party clothes has finished and all my shoes are begging to rest. Truthfully, I think I am tired of anything rice and I am trying to take it easy with my sugar consumption...so most weekends, I am at home, or in another person's house or on the street looking for money (not prostitute kind o..hehe). So, I went natural in January, 2014... no one pushed me to it. I just did it. But natural hair enthusiasts are always very quick to tell you about the glories of rocking your natural hair (I did not mention names o...where is Abieyuwa sef..hehe). Aby didn't let me rest. Many of them will tell you about how good it feels being liberated from relaxers and how taking care of your natural hair isn’t so hard. Now I am becoming them *arghhh*
Well let me tell you about some things they never remember to tell you.
There will be tears, and even blood sometimes.
When you wake up already late for an important meeting, and your bantu just end up looking like you haven’t run a comb through your hair in months, there will definitely be tears. And when you are struggling with detangling your hair, and you rip out some of it that’s tied up in a knot, there’ll be blood - ok, maybe not. Last week Thursday, I planned on washing my hair and then I slept off...I woke up in the middle of the night to wash it cos I had an early morning on Friday. No jokes. I was grumbling all through and didn't bother detangling. The amount of hair that fell off while I was combing...story for another day.
Patience is the key...patience is the key...patience is the master key. Magical hair growth can not happen overnight. If you like, use HairInfinity till Jesus returns, your hair will grow at its own pace.
It can be expensive. I hear alot of people say going natural is cheap... Aunty na lie. It is not cheap at all... I can't even start to explain...
It’ll annoy you a lot.
You are going to wake up on some days, and feel like heading straight to the salon to relax it.
You might use the same products as your friend, Tomi, who inspired you to natural, and even go to the same salons as her, but you hair will probably never look like hers. This is because curl patterns are a thing, and everyone has theirs. So as much as you love Tomi’s hair, you’ll learn to love yours more.
All in all, going natural is great and it might take you a while to get used to it, but the results are always worth it.
