One of my challenges with natural hair is consistency. Sometimes I think I'm doing the exact same thing to my hair, and the results are completely different. I don't remember having that challenge with relaxed hair!
However, I am learning how to get consistent results. I try to deep condition every week with heat. I am paying more attention to the weather since the humidity levels can affect my hair. I am also more aware of how much product I use. For example, I thought my hair hated Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, but now I think I was just using too much. Now I use less than a dime sized amount to get moisturized and (somewhat) well-behaved hair.
The journey continues...
I'm also learning to embrace the frizz...and accepting that my hair doesn't do what everyone else's does.
