When Nothing Else Works For Your Natural Hair Head-Wrap It!
I have been natural for almost for over 6 years. Honestly, I still don't really know what I'm doing with my hair. I have tried it all:
- Bantu Knots,
- Wash and Go's
- Twist outs
- Everything under the sun.
After 6 years of trial and error but mostly error and giving up. I have now discovered the head-wrap hack.These days I just throw my hair back in a bun and just leave it. I have accepted my shortcomings and I'm moving on. After contemplating numerous big chops and relaxers.
I have thrown out all the wash and go tutorials I learnt on Youtube. Of course, they were informative and fun to watch. But I have realised that every person's hair truly behaves differently and you cannot find the secret formula. You have to experiment and learn your own hair.
Here is my new routine
- Right now my hair likes being washed every 2 weeks then weekly. She likes it when I just leave her to it.
- Under my head-wrap I keep my hair stretched using the banding method. She must be stretched unless I want drama on wash day.
- I wear head-wraps when I'm out & whilst I'm at home. I always have a silk scarf on and sleep with a satin pillowcase for extra protection. And she's loving it.
If you are a natural like me and have lost hope. Join me on a head wrap journey whilst we retain length and think about what to do with our hair next. PS I might take time to do complicated head-wraps but start at your own pace🙌🏿
