I usually prefer to be able to straighten my hair even when it’s short but now I decided never to use chemicals in my hair again and to embrace my natural hair. I want to grow my hair out to a cute little afro and just wash my natural hair every two or three weeks. I can’t wash my hair more often than once a week. I like shampooing my hair but I know shampoo has stuff in it too. I just love to be able to shampoo my hair and make it smell good. I use Carol’s Daughter hair products and Luster’s Pink lotion and other oils in my hair. I find I like to use Blue Magic hair grease in my hair that the African hair braiding salons use in clients hair when they braid their hair. I like how things are now that I’m able to say I am embracing the person I am. I may have went through a phase where I changed the color of my hair and even my eyes because I once even wore color contacts. I feel very secure and comfortable saying I’ll let my hair grow back and wear a cute little afro when my hair grows back. I even remember liking having the braiders use Kankelon to braid my hair. I found I really liked getting my hair braided. It’s too much right now but I love braids.
