Relaxing hair is hatted upon by many. As the natural hair movement has set its roots in our society it’s hard to justify not being natural.
I struggled with the idea of having natural hair for a while. I used to braid it constantly to make myself feel better about it. My mum was not even aloud to come close to the hair on my hair because I wanted it to ‘grow’. I say that between brackets because I had no idea what I was doing.
After I went to uni it was even harder for me to take care of my hair I hated that it was big and that i had to wet it daily. Some months pasted and I gave in to the idea of texturisers.
It’s not completely getting rid of the curl but just making it a bit looser and easier to handle. I have always wanted wavy hair and soft waves as so to speak.
So I finally went almost crying to my mum for het to please texturize my hair. I am maybe 20 but that doesn’t mean I don’t still go crying to my mum when things aren’t what I want them to be. And I am not afraid to admit it.
We went tin the bathroom and finally did it, when I finished my hair was perfect exactly what I want and I don’t regret it at all. I know a lot of people are afraid to got true the proces but I can tell you one thing. Do what makes you happy! And this definitely made me feel happy.
I spent way less time getting ready and when my hair needs washing I just do it with a super easy wash and go routine I love.
Texturing hair isn’t a bed thing and its just as wearing makeup isn’t. Natural beauty is great and I am all for it but feeling comfortable is the goal at the end of the day.
