The natural hair journey continues…

Curls, CurlyGirl, Natural Hair, TeamNatural

Hello and welcome,
It’s all about hair talk in this post. I am going to give you a synopsis of my natural hair journey with a few pictures. My natural hair journey started in 2009. My last relaxer was mid 2009 probably around July when I was still in the south of France. Upon my return to the UK, I decided to not  relax my hair anymore. You would think that since it has been about 7 years my hair should basically be sweeping the floor. But no it is not. My hair has gone through a lot of things during those years but what affected it the most was COLOUR.

I have adapted various techniques and styles on YouTube, in magazines, blogs you name them and whereas they have aided in the health and growth of the hair I feel my hair has a lot more growth potential.

This picture was taken around mid to late 2010 so probably a year into my natural hair journey.

In 2017 I do not feel I have achieved enough growth. This might be due to ups and down causing me to not exercise on a regular basis, cook and eat nutritional meals reach in vitamins, protein and Fibre. I will share some of my lunch ideas going forward.

Jogging history

I used to do about 10 miles run or jogging a week to keep my energy up. As I have stated before I have not done this in like about a year according to my sports tracker although I do walk quite a bit so I do not know if that counts as part of it.

So my new year “hairesolution” is to incorporate more protective style such as braids, corn rows, wearing wigs and other styles with my own hair. I have also decided not to colour my hair again because I lost about 4 -5 years growth.

I have purchased and will also be trying the Solgar biotin and collagen and hyaluronic acid from Holland and Barrett. I will keep you updated on any improvement on my hair and skin.

This is a cornrow out on my natural hair. I was happy with it but will use twist out pudding next time for better definition. My natural hair in 2017.
