Tell me if this scenario sounds like you:
You see a natural with gorgeous hair. You wonder what she uses in her hair so you stalk her a little bit on social media. You end up watching a few tutorials. Then a few more. And few more. Until it’s 3am and you can’t figure out how you ended up on the weird side of YouTube watching pimple-popping videos. Or anything else totally unrelated to hair. And then you fall asleep, doing mostly nothing with all those tutorials you watched.
If you one day decide to go through the saved videos you said you'd "come back to" it's a total shock if your hair does turn out like the guru in the video.
All that wasted energy for a chance of something working? Not the best strategy.
OR maybe you’re like this:
You've concluded you just don’t have time to watch tutorials. And even if you did, you wouldn’t choose to spend it watching tutorials ANYWAY! Maybe you’ve tried it once and to no avail because your hair didn’t turn out like the chick in the video and you still found yourself struggling to keep it moisturized without having to do something with it daily. And the last thing you want to do is spend a lot of money on hair products either.
The issue we face is there’s soooo much valuable info our fellow natural hair bloggers/vloggers have put out for us that it's causing overwhelm and, unfortunately, many of us don’t quite know what to do with the information overload. I used to struggle with this. I felt like I didn’t have the time or patience to handle my natural hair or that something was just wrong with me because I didn’t get it right the first time. But I realized there’s more to it than buying what they buy.
Their life isn’t YOURS so you have to understand what to do with their advice in a way that works for your hair. And this is the hurdle the natural hair community now has. Before we didn’t have enough information to reach our curly hair goals. Now we have an overflow of it and if you're one of the naturals that still hasn't nailed down your perfect haircare regimen, the first step is to download my free guide:
