We don’t go Natural; we return to where it began!

I remember when I was young, I loved how my hair was natural and had a wavy look. I didn’t feel pressured to straighten my hair during important occasions to look proper.

As I started getting older, I felt the pressure of going with the flow and straightening my hair to fit in.

Now I dare to break the norm and go out with my natural hair without any pressure of being judged. Not just me, but most people now are embracing their natural hair.

For some motivation, here are some celebrities that encourage the natural hair movement.

We’ve always seen international stars like Lupita Amondi, Viola Davis, Alicia Keys, Zendaya, Tracee Ellis Ross, Kerry Washington, Oprah Winfrey, Lisa Bonet embrace their natural curls. Recently, we’ve also seen Arab and Egyptian celebrities that go out with their natural hair like Dina el Sherbiney, Jamila Awad, Hind Sabry, Ghada Adel, Menna Shalaby, Ola Roshdy, Myriam Fares, and Nelly Karim.

Those beautiful celebrities are embracing their natural hair and are not ashamed of going public with it.

“We don’t go Natural; we return to where it began.”

The Natural Hair Movement encourages women, and men, to go back to their natural hair and quit using heat and chemicals that damage their hair.

You heard it right. Heat and chemicals do considerable damage to the hair.

What are these chemicals?

Shampoos and conditioners contain sulfates, silicones, dyes, Keratin, and Protein treatments. These are all the worst types of chemicals that cause damage to the hair. Everything done in hair salons damages the hair.

What do these damages do to the hair?

These damages make the hair always frizzy, brittle, easily breaks, dry, and uncontrollable.

So how to fix these damages?

Here are some tips to fix the damage in your hair and go back to your natural hair

First: Stop using heat on your hair.

Use a microfiber or cotton towel when you’re out of the shower. Make sure to pat your hair to dry to make sure your curls aren’t compromised. You can later let it air dry, or use a dryer with a cool air option and a diffuser if you’re in a hurry. But we still recommend air drying your hair for the best results.

There are lots of local brands that sell microfiber towels, along with other natural hair products and they’re affordable. You can find them at The Curly Cave, The Hair Addict, and Pineapple curls.

Second: Pick hair products that lack harsh chemicals like silicons and sulfates; read the ingredients before you buy any product to see if they contain any of those chemicals. There are lots of local products that lack those chemicals; like E-keratin, Bubbles, and Lovea, they are affordable and you can buy them from hypermarkets or pharmacies.

Third: Cut off the damaged hair to make the treatment more manageable and to have quick and better results! Several salons now offer services just for natural hair. Some of the ones we can recommend are G curls, Curly Studio, and Toi Beauty Salons.

Fourth: Know your hair and what it needs! Try many products and test them so you’d know exactly what your hair needs.

Fifth: Embrace your hair in its bad days and never feel ashamed of it. On its bad days, you can style it in a pineapple.

Now let's talk about this 6 month hair growth ladies.What do you think? I'm as amazed as you are to be honest. Now you all know what i did for the first three months to stimulate hair growth (if you dont, then make sure you check out my hair growth challenge in my highlights for all details). But what did I do from January to march? Well here is what I did for these results: ✅ Drank 4 liters of WATER a day. This is such a simple step and yet I can tell you it's the step with the most impact (also on your skin & overall health of course) ✅ Used Aloe vera gel religiously. I used it in 2 ways- 1) I added it to any shampoo I used. It's an amazing natural cleanser that clears away buildup, oils or dandruff. 2) Did scalp massages with it twice a week, left it in for an hour then showered. ✅ I used the Gro Brush by @thehairaddictofficial everytime I shampooed to clarify and remove any build up. The first step to hairgrowth is a clean scalp. I shampoo once a week. ✅ I did a weekly ACV rinse- on the day I only condition, I finish off my shower with an acv rinse then cool water to rinse it off. ✅ As usual I deep conditioned once a week. ✅ Did a rice water rinse once a month. SO what do I plan to do differently the next 6 months to achieve the growth I want? I'm only going to add one thing to my routine ?? and that's the hair growth recipe suggested by @youssraelgamal of using mustard seed oil, avocado oil & patchuli oil as a scalp massage. She guarantees results ? For details check out her page. Now will you join me these coming months? I know that these seem like a lot of steps (but come on look at my results!). Still I know some people dont have the time for all of them, so tell me ?? will you follow the whole routine with me or which step will you commit to the most to reach your goal? #curlytalks #naturalhair #naturalhaircommunity #healthyhair #hairgrowth #hairgrowthchallenge #before #after #aloevera #shorthair #curlyhair #curls #healhtycurls #curlytalksgrowth
