Does your Hair Texture determine manageability?
I’m seeing so many women say natural hair is not for them or they are not able to manage their hair where it has me thinking does texture determine manageability? If you think about it, it really depends on the person because there some people with straight or wavy hair who think their hair is hard to manage. So let’s be real does natural hair type 4’s take some work. Hell yea it does. I mean come on now from the frequent tangles, single strand knots, watching out for humidity, making sure our hair is dry, scarf is on and products are right it can be some work. People automatically think the tighter the curl the harder it is to manage which is why women won’t even attempt to go natural because they don’t know what to do with it.
I personally don’t believe that natural hair is hard to manage the key is knowing your regimen, what works for you and your lifestyle. I know for some keeping their hair in two strand twist work, where for others letting the hair out is what works best and even some think a little heat with the blow dryer makes life easier. Tighter the curl does not determine if it’s easier or difficult to manage your hair it is not finding the right way to get the moisture and look you want. You have to take the time to learn what your hair likes and what it doesn’t like. The more you take time into anything the more it flourishes because you begin to have a better understanding of how it works. You can’t go back to the products you knew when your hair was relaxed because they most likely won’t work on your hair while natural. Give your hair some love and see if a butter would work better or a curl creme. Trial and error is key. If you have natural hair events in your area or product swaps those are the perfect time to try out new products and begin to find out more about your hair through education. I know it sounds like some work but we have to take the time to learn our hair so we can have a positive frame of mind on just how “manageable” our hair can be.
