New video up on YouTube where I talk about my experience when I was younger and how a hairdresser bullied me into getting a relaxer. If you’ve had similar experience, or if you’d like to share your experiences, please feel free to comment!
Hey guys! I just uploaded a new video up on my YouTube channel! It’s my relaxed hair journey and it compares my relaxed hair (which I thought was my healthy and normal hair at the time) to my current hair. I show how damaged my hair was from relaxers, excessive bleaching and dyeing, and constant heat. It wasn’t until I learned that what I was doing was a problem, and started taking care of my hair, that my hair was able to grow and thrive. I hope that you all enjoy!
Here’s my new updated FULL curly hair routine! All of the products (besides the EcoStyler gel, which I only use on my edges) are paraben, silicone, and sulfate free! Lately I’ve been trying to use more natural products on my hair and seeing how they work. This past summer, I spent over a $100 on natural and healthier hair products and these are the only ones that I liked. The other ones left me with hair that I HAD to wash the next day because they weren’t moisturizing enough. I hope you guys enjoy the video. Below are what I used in the video!
