I haven’t considered myself as being natural for very long although I had locs for 6 years. I am exploring my hair and trying a few things and as I find out more I just can’t seem to help sharing my ideas with friends, family, colleagues etc. I am by no means an expert especially as I can be lazy with hair, but I am reading, watching and trying out different things with mine and my daughter’s hair.
Last week I attended a conference with a friend and we talked hair which seems to be my staple diet at the moment. She has two beautiful girls with different types of curl patterns and she decided to try out finger coils on them. I have been doing coils on my hair for a couple of months and find it so easy that I decided to share. See these fantastic photos of the results.
We have been fighting over the bath since our shower broke down about 3 years ago! We now have a new shower! My initial reaction was I can’t wait to take out my coils so I can wash my hair under a warm stream of water. I’ll keep you posted as to the difference this makes to my hair regimen.
Six years ago, when I turned 40, I decided to locs my hair. No particular reason except I am lazy and wanted to do as little as possible to it and my cousin Karen’s hair looked fantastic. I grew it long but in 2012 decided it was too heavy, too hard to wash and on top of that my reasonably priced locs beautician had done a runner. I decided to keep my hair natural after Serena was disgusted when I uttered the unspeakable word ‘perm’! I did some YouTube research on being natural and well, here I am natural and loving it although still not 100% sure how I want to style my newly discovered coils.
