Hair and self esteem

Hair and self esteem

How hair is important to self-esteem

Hair, if not the first, is one of the things people notice first about you. It gives a quick peep into your personality, identity, and interests. It has a way of informing people of your age, gender, social class, and even more. Hair, as one of your salient features, frames your face and configures your facial appearance. And as such, affects your self-image. A good and well-thought hairdo would complement your facial features, and inflate your self-image. Self-image, on the other hand, has been proven scientifically, and even maybe by common sense, to be directly connected to self-esteem.

Why Transition To Natural Hair

Here’s Why Some People Prefer Transitioning to Doing the Big Chop

Why Transition To Natural Hair

Here’s Why Some People Prefer Transitioning to Doing the Big Chop

Transitioning is simply growing out your natural texture while retaining your relaxed ends. A big chop, on the other hand, is shaving off your relaxed hair and growing your natural hair from scratch. Transitioning allows you to ease into the natural hair lifestyle because, let’s face it, you will find that it is a major change. Most naturalistas go the transitioning route because it gives them the option of testing the waters before diving in.

You may be wondering if it wouldn’t be simpler to just cut the hair and go natural since growing natural hair is the goal, right? Well, this is not a decision to take lightly for some people, hence, their desire to grow the hair to a certain length before cutting off the relaxed ends.

Why transition?


Transitioning Will Make You Get Used to Your Natural Texture

Most women began using relaxers when they were kids, and they grew into adulthood with the only knowledge of their natural hair being the periodic relaxer touch ups they get 3-4 times a year. Transitioning allows them to get used to their texture before committing to becoming full-time naturals. If you are considering the natural hair lifestyle, a few months-worth of growth should help solidify your decision, or you could decide to go back to your relaxer ways if you think the journey is not for you.

You Learn to Style Your Natural Hair When You Transition

Those super cool YouTube styling videos will convince you to take some scissors to your hair. While those online hair inspirations are great, you may need a few trials to perfect your hair styling game and to decide which styles are perfect for your texture. Transitioning is wonderful for this trial and error phase. By the time you are fully natural, you would have learned what styles work for you.

You can Decide Which Hair Products Work for You During the Transition Phase

There are so many products in the market, and as a newbie, you might be tempted to try them all out. Be cautious, though. Read up on the active ingredients in these products and find out how they affect your hair. Transitioning allows you to learn about various products like shampoos and conditioners and all the other products out there.

With Transitioning, You Aren’t Really Starting from the Bottom

Admit it, your relaxed ends serve as a cushion. Not only do you retain new natural growth 100% BUT it cuts down the ‘growth watch’ that comes with doing the big chop. You may not really feel the need to track every inch of growth and measure gains with a ruler like most newbie naturals. You get to grow your hair out for a few months or a few years, either way, you’re cutting off your relaxed when you are satisfied with the length of your natural texture.

What to look for in a natural hair salon

What To Look For When Choosing Natural Hair Salon

What to look for in a Natural Hair Salon?

1. Does the salon specialize in natural hair?

You may not want to go to a salon where the stylists may be great at relaxers and other chemical processes but aren’t very good at taking care of hair in its natural state. This could potentially end in disaster if the stylist decides to do your hair at all.

2. Is the hair stylist natural?

This may not be a concern of yours. But you may want to think about this point. It may help with your choice of the stylist because you can clearly see results on their own hair.

Suggestions for natural hair

Natural Hair Suggestions

There have been many requests for help in developing a good, healthy hair regimen. A lot of people want to go natural but just don't know the exact things that they need to do because they may not have been natural since they were young or just never knew how to maintain it. Here is a list of 10 natural hair suggestions to help with making your customized regimen...

1. Moisturize your hair. Making sure that it is moisturized daily even if you don't have to put anything on it on a particular day is really important, especially in dry winter months. Using water is important. Get a spray bottle and before you go to bed or when you're able at home just mist it before you put anything else on it. After that put whatever leaves in the conditioner you want on it. Just make sure there is little to no alcohol in it (The fatty alcohols don't really count. They can actually be very moisturizing). Remember the ingredients are listed from the most to the least so leave it alone if it's in the first five ingredients.
