Here are some things that people often wish they knew before starting a natural hair journey:

  1. It's a journey, not a destination: Growing and maintaining healthy natural hair takes time, patience, and commitment. It's important to understand that there will be ups and downs, setbacks, and moments of frustration. But with persistence and dedication, you can achieve your goals.

  2. Understanding your hair type: Every individual's hair is unique and understanding your hair type and its specific needs is key to achieving healthy and beautiful natural hair. You may need to experiment with different products, techniques, and styles to find what works best for your hair.

  3. The importance of moisture: Natural hair tends to be dry and requires a lot of moisture to maintain its health and vitality. Deep conditioning, regular moisturizing, and protective styling can help to keep your hair hydrated and prevent breakage.

  4. The benefits of a healthy diet: A healthy diet rich in nutrients such as vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and biotin can help to nourish your hair from the inside out. Drinking plenty of water, eating a balanced diet, and taking supplements can help to promote healthy hair growth and prevent hair loss.

  5. The importance of protective styling: Protective styles such as braids, twists, bantu knots, and updos can help to protect your hair from damage, retain length, and promote healthy growth. However, it's important to avoid styles that are too tight or cause tension on your hairline.

  6. Embracing your natural hair texture: It's important to love and embrace your natural hair texture, whether it's curly, coily, kinky, or wavy. Don't feel pressured to conform to society's beauty standards or compare your hair to others. Celebrate your unique beauty and individuality.

  7. The role of stress in hair health: Stress can have a negative impact on your hair health, causing hair loss, breakage, and stunted growth. Practicing self-care, managing stress, and prioritizing your mental health can help to promote healthy hair growth and overall well-being.

  8. The importance of regular maintenance: Regular treatments, detangling, and deep conditioning can help to prevent split ends, breakage, and other hair damage. A consistent hair care routine is essential for maintaining healthy and beautiful natural hair.
