Real Talk: I’m Not Feeling My Natural Hair

So I’ll be honest, I’m not feeling my natural hair. My hair has been through some major changes over the past year. If you have been following me you know that I had to learn to care for it all over again with new techniques and practices. Read my story here.

While it has been going great for the most part, I still find myself back at the same point. I am constantly looking at old pictures of how my hair used to be and feeling sad. I know that my hair may never be the same as it was pre and immediately post baby, but sometimes its just hard for me to accept that. I’m being totally transparent with y’all, I’m not feeling my natural hair.

I’ve been trying new techniques and new styles but I keep getting disappointed with my hair. So lately to keep my hands out of my hair, I have been protective styling all summer. You can check out the styles that I have been rocking, Here, Here, and Here 🙂

I am saying all of this to say that I too have bad hair days. You may not see the bad side of the Natural Hair Gurus, that you follow online but I’m sure they have bad hair days too and sometimes are not feeling their natural hair (me included). My hair and I are not getting along right now, but I won’t give up. I will continue to take care of it and nurture it. I have been consistent with my healthy hair regimen, vitamin intake and water intake. I have also been making sure that my hair is deep conditioned in between protective styling.

Sometimes you just are not feeling your hair. You just feel blah, because your hair isn’t acting right I’m here to tell you girlfriend I’ve been there. I’m there right now. But, I’m gonna get through this. At the end of the day I love my natural hair and would never go back to a relaxer!

Are you not feeling your natural hair?

    I felt this way a LOT the first two years into being natural, but now I LOVE MY HAIR! The only day I’m not so into it is when I have to dye it. You and your hair look fabulous, try not to be too hard on yourself.

    I feel the same way about my hair right now.
    It sucks because before it stopped responding like before, I was in a really good place!
    Oh well. Back to the drawing board!
    Your hair still looks beautiful. It may not feel like it, but we see you!
