Fashion: The Essential Guide to Spring and Summer

Well I myself have curly hair and I can attest to everything that I say for the girls who are in the 3 category  for C’s. My hair personally it is probably difficult and easy at the same time it’s that happy medium.

Well I’ve inserted quite a few pictures and all of those will be attached on the blog because I love blogs that show pictures but also include some of other women who has the exact same hair texture and they can give the exact same advice that I give as far as that happy medium of maybe she did her hair maybe she didn’t but either way I really do love my hair

Which is not even fathomable for myself, who is a 3A category hair type, or for my best friend who was a 4B/4C category hair type. The one thing that I will say is the difficulty that does come with having hair type 2 is that you have to put a lot more work into trying to achieve a girl that’s going to last longer and you deal with the issue as far as that falling but there’s a lot of grace and a lot of just natural beauty that comes with it to hairstyle.

Fashion: The Essential Guide to Spring and Summer

Kinky hair is notoriously known for being more challenging but with the proper tools it is by far the show stopping when nurtured.

Moisture

Kinky hair has the tightest curls of all 4 types. When our hair makes natural oils, the straighter the strands the easier the oil can pass down the shaft. Since Kinky has the tightest curls or all, oil hardly ever makes it to the end. So this makes moisture a big deal. So creams and conditioning are a must. 

What’s a great moisturizer? Eden All Natural Curl Defining Cream

How should I apply moisture? LOC or LCO Method

 

Curl Definition

Curl definition is almost an impossibility with Kinky hair but it can be achieved with the correct styling method as well as the proper holding product. Since the curls are more individualized, getting them to cluster isn’t going to happen without product.

You have to understand that when your natural you not going to do the exact same things you may have been taught. The one thing that you have to do immediately is change your shampoo and change your conditioner. The shampoo that you need now is one that is majority water based because your natural hair will need as much moisture as possible. I suggest starting with something very easy to transition too.

Which gave me a different much softer consistency. This is only for the transitioning time so don’t get use to it.

 

 

If you are past this point or getting close to passing this part of transition then here is the next step.
