In continuation with my discussion on the psychology of having 4C Hair, yes the psychology, and how we honestly feel about it let’s discuss the big chop. To be honest, since we’re speaking honestly, I wish I had a blog to read when I cut my permed hair off and was faced with my natural hair. Not knowing how to style it, having hardly any Youtube videos to watch, and no one around me had any advice outside of getting my hair straighten was frustrating.
Some folks call it “Slave Hair”, “Nappy”, “Knotty”, “Beady Bead” so on and so forth. For some reason, the 4C hair texture label has received a bad wrap. All these labels are mostly negative which leave many naturalistas desiring for a different texture. And let’s be honest, who would want to be associated with any negative connotations?
If you noticed, you hardly find anyone to come out and say proudly “YES,
New Color for a New Season! The time has come to change up my color once again using my Shea Moisture Hair Color System. Instead of using the shade Dark Auburn, which was my original color used in my youtube video, I decided to try the Reddish Blonde shade. I have to say, I’m so thankful that I have this very chic haircut because I have the ability to experiment and it still looks cute.
I recently purchased the exclusive line from Target by Carol’s Daughter named “Sacred Tiare”. Some of you may remember my informational blog post about the new line and its claims. As soon as the weekend rolled around, I was excited to try out my new shampoo and conditioner. Below are pictures of my process and my initial thoughts.
Step #1 – Deep Condition
I deep conditioned before I washed my hair.
