I DEFINED MY CURLS!!

Hi  guys,
    My natural hair journey has been a great blessing to me in so many ways. I have learnt things about my hair that I would never have known if I was still relaxed. One of the things I recently learnt is that my curls can be defined. In this Post I talked about how I was able to identify my curl pattern as 4a but I wasn't sure if I could achieve the super defined curls I saw in other 4a sisters I saw on YouTube. Fast forward some months later, I got my hands on the famous Ecostyler gel (with Olive oil) and I was ready to find out if my hair would make me proud.


 

  I did a test run on fairly stretched moisturised hair. I picked up the first lock of hair and applied a bit of the gel from the roots to the ends. Then I briskly rubbed it in in a downward motion 3 to 4 times and voila....Curls were popping!!!!

All done ;-)

    I finished my whole head in about an hour and a half because my hair wasn't fully detangled and I didn't want to use a comb (which I ultimately did after suffering a lot). The results were really good. I had a meeting that same day and I'm proud to say EVERYBODY loved my hair and wanted to know how I managed to achieve the look. But as usual once I started talking about BC'ing and then conditioning and deep conditioning and hot oil treatments the interest died immediately LOL!!
    To achieve this look make sure your hair is thoroughly detangled and preferably stretched. Make small workable sections and do each section at a time. I used mainly my fingers but I've seen some You tubers use brushes. I didn't have to do that. I just rubbed the gel on the small section I was working on and then I separated the clumped curls. The gel does most of the work just ensure you smooth it in downward motions. Also make sure the hair is well moisturised to prevent crunchiness as it dries. Another thing to note is that the gel looks kinda white when you first apply it, but that goes away when the hair dries.
   So you never know what surprises your hair has in store for you. Just love her and treat her well and let the future be popping with curls.

The best way to comb your natural hair

Hi there,   Combing natural hair has always been a problem. There is a lot of pain involved but that's not the only challenge combing presents. Combing your hair is a major cause of hair breakage, remember those balls of hair you remove from your comb each time you comb?  Here are some tips to help you minimize breakage from combing: Use the right tool  Never use a fine tooth comb for your hair. It is better to use a wide toothed comb. This will reduce hair breakage. If you must use a fine tooth comb ensure you have thoroughly detangled and combed with a wide tooth comb first. Also make sure the teeth of the comb is seamless to avoid ripping out your hair as you comb.  Avoid these  Much better Comb your hair only when it is damp  Your hair is weakest when it is dripping wet and so combing it then will cause it to break.On the other hand combing your hair when it is dry will also break it off because your hair is not as flexible as it should be.
