On today’s blog will be different ladies with their hair stories particularly one that was team natural hair when I first met her and this summer sis relaxed her hair .
When I asked her why, she said “I no do again, I can’t come and die”. Interesting Somebody and I haven’t stopped laughing whenever I remember her reply.
She’s a 4th year medical student, Baker(she learnt to bake and hasn’t baked oo, she has all the baking equipments😂😂😂), a tailor and a bookworm.
Qsn: Sis how long were you Team natural?
Amira: For 5 years.
Qsn: What was your natural hair routine?
Amira: Nothing much, just Wash, Condition. Use shea or castor oil. Then maybe once a week moisturise and I wasn’t consistent though😂😂😂.
(My fellow lazy team natural).
Qsn: So Why did you leave team natural?
Amira: Hehehe I was Tired of the stress 😴
Qsn: Do you have any regret relaxing your hair?
Amira: Na! Not yet…… I’m enjoying how easy it is to wash and comb. Maybe when my hair starts to fall out 😜.
(Kindly delete my number when Alopecia sets in)
Qsn: What exactly were you never told before you joined team natural?
- First That natural hair will teach me patience. All the working in products and detangling strand by strand and in sections….phew!!! That’s alot 😫😫😫.
- Second, That there are over 1001 you tube hair specialists. Everyone with their own thing and advice. Gets overwhelming.
Interesting, I can relate to the over 1001 youtubers . So overwhelming and such energy isn’t what I have.
Well, any words for those considering joining team natural hair?
Amira: They should be consistent. It’s worth it. Natural hair is so flexible, there are a lot of styles you can achieve with and most importantly Don’t look at others too much. Our hair journies are very different.
Ndewo Nwanne, ikwuru ofuma. Ka odiba✌.
Second guest on the blog is another sister I have known for awhile now .
She’s an academician, PhD holder in a country women are relegated to the kitchen and she’s got the vibe you all would want. Not forgetting she’s a bilingual like my humble self.
Thank you Nwamaka for accepting to share your story.
What are the myths you heard about Natural Hair.
Nwamy: Well, my joining team natural was a personal decision so I was open to whatever I see in it, I handle it…..
For the myths…
- It will be that keeping natural hair is expensive, and if you want your hair to grow, you must use certain products. I don’t think that is true….. keeping My hair now isn’t more expensive than when I kept a chemically straightened hair…..
- Again, people say that natural hair doesn’t shed….But that’s a lie….natural hair also sheds and like crazy too😂😂.
(Talmabout it! My hair sheds enough to make a baby’s hair. Haq! Haq!! Haq!!! They don’t know😂).
- This annoying one that natural hair grows better. Smh! Hair growth has more to do with a person’s genetic makeup and less of whether she keeps a natural hair or not……I have kept my natural hair for close to 2years and I can barely pack it up buh I have seen someone that within a year of keeping her own hair…it’s quite longer….
Qsn: How long have you been natural?
Nwamy: It’s up to 2 years and counting
Qsn: What’s your natural hair routine?
Nwamy: I braid my hair and when it’s not braided, I either twist my natural hair or weave it to enable me wear my wigs……oh, I wash it often because I have dandruff…..once in a while, I use wool to make my hair in order to help it straighten and grow.
Qsn: In your opinion Are there benefits of being team natural.
Nwamy: Well, personally, I love team natural….when I lock and twist it, it looks more beautiful on a team natural hair than the counterpart….I love the way the hair is full nd thick…..I just love it when I see someone pack different styles using their team natural hair and that was what made me go into keeping it too.
Qsn: Are you planning on leaving team natural anytime soon and if yes, why?
Nwamy: Nope….as long as it doesn’t affect my health status or psychological well-being……
Hahahaha spoken well as a psychologist you are. Mental health is essential in decision making.
Thank you so much for sharing your hair story.
