Time & Effort
Hey Curly Divas,Today marks 12 weeks since I went completely natural, and what I've discovered is that it takes a lot of work to be a natural diva. I'm happy to be relaxer-free and excited about all of the new growth (inside and out), but wearing natural hair takes a lot of time and effort. I'm not referring to the time it takes to wash and maintain natural hair. I 'm not talking about the long periods under the dryer, deep conditioning my locs so they will be strong. I'm not talking about the time I sit with KBB hair mask on so that my coils will be soft to the touch. I am not even talking about the hour it takes me to detangle and twist my hair now that it has become a little longer than it was my first week of being natural. Aside from all of these things, there's an aspect of the time and effort it takes to be natural that hair blogs don't really speak of- chasing down products.
