Learning My Hair All Over Again

So after only these first few days of caring for my natural hair, even though there is only a little of it, I am realizing that I am going to have to learn what works for my hair all over again. The same products and methods I used for my relaxed hair will not work the same for my natural hair. That is where YouTube is proving to be sooo extremely helpful. I don’t think people really know the value and worth of their videos.
For example, when I was relaxed, I could care less about “cones.” After co-washing my hair for a few days with a particular conditioner, although my hair felt very soft when rinsing it in the shower, by the next day, my hair is extremely dry feeling. So I watched a few videos on YouTube and found that the conditioner I was using was filled with cones and cones create a barrier on your hair locking moisture out. The more you use it, the drier your hair will feel.
So, now I must start looking for cone free products. To be continued…


  1. Let me know what you find for a conditioner. I'm looking for a new one. My hair also gets very dry after my wash day.

  2. Yes, I will definitely let you know :-)
