For some reason, I find that natural women feel like if they make being natural seem like a complicated, time consuming formula and process, it gives them some sort of credibility. Like if it takes them the entire afternoon to wash their hair, it is because they really know how to take care of their natural hair. Meanwhile, I’m over here wash, moisturize, twist and done in an hour. Are you doing too much?
1. Your shampoo day is literally an all day event- That is unnecessary. I just need to know what it is that takes all day. Even if I try to stretch the process, I still wouldn’t take all day.
2. Your detangling process is exhausting and long- Yes, detangling sucks. Yes, it could take about 45 mins. NO, it shouldn’t take 2+ hours.
3. You pre poo, shampoo, condition, deep condition, leave in, moisturize, heat cap, every wash session- Now you know you are doing too much. Your hair just does not need all of that. Deep condition once a month and pre poo when needed. That is enough.
What is your natural hair routine? Are you doing too much?
