My hair is natural and I must say it is one of the most stubbornest hair I have ever seen. It is as hard as rock (lol). The catch here is, I am really lazy when it comes to keeping my hair from breaking.

The salon and braids are my worst my enemies. I just hate going to the salon and putting my hair in any kind of braid. These two are just so painful for me. But, I had a change of heart regarding to how I keep my hair because, I saw that I was mistreating my hair which was not fair.

So, I got my self some natural hair products annnd started putting my hair in protective hair styles. I won’t lie and say my hair has increased in volume. Nope far from that but it is softer and manageable now. Number 13 is my most favorite style now.
