Everyone's hair is different. I'm not sure why that was a newsflash for me. A hard lesson I learned after dedicating hours to watching YouTube videos, spending a ton of money on hair care products, and wasting so many hours on my "wash day" routine. The first year after my "big chop" was exhausting. On a trip to DC for Thanksgiving, I didn't notice that my bag was open and all of my hair care products fell out. In a last ditch effort to not look a complete mess in our family photo, I found new products that were serious game changers on my natural hair journey.
Weekly deep conditioning with a thermal heat cap for 30 minutes, followed by Kinky-Curly Knot Today helps to minimize tangles and makes detangling easier.
Curl Delight & Hair Butter
Naturally Smitten is selling a miracle in a bottle and a jar. This combo is a guarantee for hydrated hair. In the early stages of my journey, I used creams and my hair always looked and felt dry. Once I made the switch to the moisturizing hair butter, my hair became more manageable. I spray the curl delight on my hair in sections, and follow with the hair butter for each twist.
