Because they know someone’s gonna come & say ”Shut up, you know you are”. But some girls say they’re not pretty not because they’re looking for attention but because that’s how they feel. They compare themselves & see what others don’t. We see someone beautiful, but they see stretch marks, gut hanging out, small bodily features that wouldn’t catch the average guy’s eye. That’s why some girls can’t take a compliment, they feel like they don’t deserve it.
I saw your question and i would recommend using more generous amounts of your products and set the styles longer. I also have 4c hair and had similar problems to you. You can also check out my new YouTube channel called ForTheNaturalGirls. i hope i helped!
Thanks. You are the greatest. So far, I haven’t had too many problems.
I hope your summer is going well. I must say that my natural hair journey is coming along accordingly. I have been doing some research on my own and finding out what works best for my hair.Also, I would just like to say thank you to the ladies who gave me tips, I truly appreciate it. However, I wanted to share this link about different hair textures. This link could possibly help people that are new naturals like myself who are building a hair regimen. I would like for you ladies to remember to use what works best for you and DO NOT become a product junkie.
I read this quote on YouTube and I wanted to share my opinion on the statement:
“Black people are the only race that seems to keep on explaining why they wear the hair they were born with [curly, coiled, textured, etc] …..Is it even normal to have a debate on hair ?? Who ever ask someone why…
did you get help with your question? "Hello Everyone!I have been natural for seven months now. However, I did not big chop , instead I wore braids to help my hair grow the releaxer out. " etc... let me know if you still need help, i have 4c hair and an easy daily routine, but there are a lot of great youtube channels for sure:)
Thanks! I’ve been using Youtube as one of my main sources. I would like to know are there any products you use to help define your curls.I’ve purchase the cantu curl enhancing smoothie, eco styler gel and it does me no justice. I’ve also tried to attempt a wash and go, but it doe not work the way I would think it would.And it is very diffcult trying to put my hair in a twist out while it is wet. I watched one young ladies video and it helped me so much as far what I should do somewhat with maintaining my hair. I try not mess with my hair all the time. So I ‘ve just been wearing a wig, washing my hair twice a week and keeping it braided for just a couple of days.
You could research how to *stretch* your hair without heat. I transitioned about two years ago (officially; to me this transition is still ongoing). I mainly use a protective style: I plait the first ~1/6 of my hair in three strand twists and then continue with two strand twists. The good thing about this is that if I want to have a fro later in the week this style makes it really easy!
congrats on your big chop! i would say for anyone, not just 4c, your biggest task is not styling but moisturizing your hair. i say this for several reasons. although your hair is now natural, its not as healthy as it will be, since perm seeps into the scalp and it can take over a year to grow out all the bad effects. u need to moisturize and seal your hair. also, moisturizing your hair will make your texture really come out. i thought i was 4b when i big choped. turns out i'm now a 3b/c
I didn;t big chop, I wore braidsto help the relaxer grow out. And I must say that the relaxer is basicly gone. My hair has little tiny curls but it is somewhat diffcult styling it, but that’s alright. And I appreciate the advice.
I have been natural for seven months now. However, I did not big chop , instead I wore braids to help my hair grow the releaxer out. Now that 95% of my hair has barely any releaxer in it, I want to sport my natural hair off. The problem is I have trouble trying to tend to it. I have subscribed to sooooo many natural youtube channels it is ridiculous. I see people do wash and go's and twistsout and it does not work on my hair. Everytime I attempt to do these styles my hair draws ups and gets dry fairly quick. So if there is anyone that could give me some tips on how to style it, I would be sooooo happy!!!!
