It’s official. I’m natural.
You may remember from my last post that I met Dami, the founder of Neriah Naturals. We had a little chat (well, more like a consultation) on my hair transition process and she was excitingly informative and impressively self-educated on afro hair care (be it natural or relaxed).
Last weekend, I picked up my Neriah Natural Deep Conditioning order and at about 1:00am the following morning I had my hair all buttered from the roots to the tips. For the first time in 7months I could comb my hair right through with ease and smoothness. It was certified, I was sold. My thick, full, afro hair often requires a dose of composure and a whole lot of patience so quite frankly, this was an unknown luxury.
Around 6:00am that morning the hairdresser came over to braid my hair and before she’d even begun, I braved the Big Chop! I just didn’t see the point of having these straight edges on my curly base. They looked unhealthy and weak as they hung limp off the edges of my afro crown.
I’ve refused to put pictures of my new look up simply because the pictures are of terrible quality and at 6:00am in the morning it’s safe to say no one (especially not me) looks particularly flattering. So until next time, here are pictures of my Neriah Natural product and me whilst deep conditioning…. Lol
