In my opinion being "Natural" means that I no longer use a chemical relaxer to permanently alter the natural texture of my hair. Some people will go further and say that it also means that you only apply products to the hair that contain natural ingredients.
I try my best to steer clear of products that may possibly have things in it that will result in damage for my hair. However I do sometimes still try things that may contain some un-natural ingredients (i.e. conditioners with silicones, clarifying shampoo with sulfates, gel).
I am mostly concerned about how to care for my hair now that I am working with a thick and coily texture. I am learning that curly hair types require a different method of styling. This blog is so that I can share information on how to care for naturally coily, kinky, afro-textured hair.
