Diary of a Nouveau Nappyhead Part I

Wednesday, October 04, 2006



In the last three weeks since I've cut my hair and went natural.I've bought about four products. When I went to get a trim, the barber( who was a woman) told me to let it grow a little and consider locking it.I've considered locking but the jury is still out on that. I'll just grow it out some more for now. She also told me to not put gel on my hair. Unfortunately , gel is the only way that my curls have definition and stay that way. I'm really trying,ya'll to be healthy and understanding to my hair. I figure this,if I'm nice to it, it will love me back. Seems to work with all of my relaxer, swooped haired girlfriends who have standing appointments with their yaky-yaky hairdressas! Here's what I've found recently:

Dark and Lovely Naturally Honey Wave Glaze-I wet my hair in the morning with warm water and apply this first.Yeah,its a gel. It says it has sunscreen but I don't see what SPF is.

Dark and Lovely Naturally Honey Kissed Hair Dress- Smells delicious and isn't overly greasy. But I just noticed that the first three ingredients are Water, Mineral Oil, and Petroleum which I once read are not good for hair period.

Elasta QP Creme Conditioning Shampoo-I used to use this back in 1997 when cut it natural. The only ingredients I could even pronounce was WATER.

Elasta QP Intense Fortifying Hair Conditioner- I just like it because it smells like bananas. But smells can be deceiving. Cetyl Alcohol is the 2nd ingredient.

So I'm back to the drawing board. I'm going to hit the internet tomorrow to order some Carol's Daughter and Oyin. Natural Products for my crop!
