Natural Girl Essentials 

Black Girl Magic is really a thing. We exemplify this with our beautiful melanin, curly hair, strong features, and our culture is pretty amazing. Our hair is so versatile it’s crazy! I stopped getting perms my sophomore year of college. The last time I got it I knew I could never touch perm again. It broke my hair off terribly and I knew it was so no good for my hair. I wore weaves on and off then cut my hair short like Halle Berry / Nia Long in the 90s. I love short cuts! I’m always willing to cut my hair short because the older I’ve gotten I’ve realized that hair is just hair. It doesn’t make you a better, more beautiful, person if it’s long. Also, it will grow back so why not cut it if you want to? But I would straighten it often and was self-conscious about how I looked with my short, natural hair. I finally learned to love and embrace it. I still straighten my hair on some occasions but not nearly as often as I use to. I’m kind of obsessed with SheaMositure products. I usually buy their products from Targer or Walgreens. Walgreens is actually doing a really good promotion on SheaMositure right now that ends on 2/27 if you haven’t gone yet. For the few years I’ve been natural, I’ve been using their Coconut & Hibiscus Shampoo and Coniditioner, as well as their Curl Enhancing Smoothie. A few months ago I tried their Superfruir Complex body soap. It was pink (which is my favorite color) and smelled so good, so I thought why not give it a try if I love their other products. The soap makes my skin feel great! Two weeks ago I bought their Superfruit Complex 10-in-Renewal System Shampoo and Conditioner. This one specifically is suppose to protect hair that is dyed. The crown area of my hair is honey blonde, which is my signature color even thought I’d love to branch out and get a bold color like hot pink or teal but I could definitely feel the difference in the Superfruit shampoo/conditioner. It makes my hair, even the dyed area, feel so silky and smooth. My hair is soft and my curls are bouncy. When I need my edges to be laid to perfection I use either Eco Syle Gel,which can be used for not just edges but to seal protective styles as well, and Olive Oils Edge Control. Raw Coconut Oil and Jamaican Black Castor Oil are, in my eyes, both essential to keeping my hair healthy and making my curls flourish. You can see from the pictures below my different looks throughout my natural hair journey. I just love being an African American and to all my ladies who are thinking about becoming natural or already are, EMBRACE THOSE CURLS! 🙂

  1. It’s me, again! Lol. I wanted to comment here because my daughter loves her coconut/hibiscus product. She loves that whole line. She is going to guest post for me, soon. So you’ll get to see that head of hair. Frankly, I really love your natural curly look better than the straight one. Either way, you are cute as a button and working wonders for women, and young girls, everywhere. Keep shining! 😍

    • Haha that coconut/hibiscus line is AMAZING! I always recommend it to everyone. I’ve started to use the Superfruit Complex Hair shampoo & Coniditioner and love that line as well. Yay!!! I can’t wait to see 🙂 OMG thank you so much! I really appreciate your kind words beyond words! 🤗😘
