Welcome back, y’all! Oh the joys of natural hair…the detangling, the washing, the day long deep conditioning process… You’d be surprised how many people don’t know how much time goes into maintaining natural hair.
You’d also be surprised the amount of misconceptions people have about natural hair and people who are natural. Today, I’ll be breaking down just a few natural hair misconceptions that I’ve heard and why they are misconceptions!
The two words that strike fear into every naturalistas heart, whether a new natural or a very seasoned one: wash day. For those of you who don’t know, wash day is the term dubbed by people with natural hair because washing your hair can be a day long process due to a variety of factors. Washing natural hair isn’t just an easy 20 minutes in and out during your shower, y’all!
This post details my own wash day routine, which took me about two and a half hours from start to finish. Wash days can vary from person to person and also by what they want their hair to look like. This is my wash routine after my hair has been straightened for an extended period of time. Grab that wide tooth comb and detangling brush because you’re in for a wild ride!
