Soooo, I went around a week with my hair basically covered up. Either I had on a wrap or a hat.
So today, I decided that what my hair needed, was shape. What my hair needed was evenness.
I set out to a salon, where a girl there does “natural” hair.
From the moment I stepped in and saw the various hairstyles in process, I wanted the creamy crack( relaxer). The way these chicks hair just laid down in a style, even when it wasn’t curled……
But I held on, and let the girl wash, condition and shape my hair. Now, she didn’t take off much more than I already had, but it looks much better. It has a shape to it! While talking to her, she did suggest a few products to try for my 4a/4b( translated: very very kinky) hair:
Miss Jessie’s Buttercreme for two strand twists, twist outs, coils, braid outs, etc.
Kinky Curly’s Curling Custard to bring out your natural hair’s curl pattern.
Kinky Curly’s Knot Today leave in conditioner for detangling.
I added Shea Butter and ElastaQP’s DRP-11 for deep conditioning. ( I LOVE THIS STUFF!)
So, I’m going to try out these products over the weekend. Of course, I’ll post results and reviews.
