Undoing years of being taught into thinking that your natural hair was in some way inaccurate and needed to be fixed is one significant habit to break.
When you get rid of that hurdle and make a complete shift into wearing your unchanged hair with confidence, it can likewise be a bit tiring staying up to date with the ever altering patterns in hairdos, item choices, and strategies spoke about and passed around within the community. Handling these things might make anyone want to quit on their journey-- and truly so. Just ask Ambria, a YouTube creator who can thank the natural hair community for getting leverage on the planet of social networks influence.
" I went natural in May of 2012 and since then, I have colored my hair a total of four times," says Ambria. "I have actually cut my hair two times. The reason is because, like many people, I got tired of it looking a specific method."
Ambria blames part of her dissatisfaction in returning natural on her fascination with length retention.
" The very first couple of years of being natural I was everything about length, and figuring out exactly what kind of styles I might achieve. After a while, I ended up being more focused with the health of my hair, but I still wanted to try something new."
After switching gears to concentrate on the health of her texture still didn't satisfy a food craving for modification, Ambria did another Big Chop. "I decided to cut my hair-- into a tapered cut-- and I began having fun with color." While this worked for a while, she rapidly recognized the consistent upkeep that now had the adjustments.
" I quickly realized that having color in your hair implies you have to constantly make sure your hair is hydrated ... I failed to do that to the best of my ability."
Still, Ambria wasn't all set to quit her natural hair simply.
" To combat this, I cut off about 2 to 3 inches of my ends, which got rid of a few of the color, but not all. After a while, I saw that twist outs did not look excellent on me like they used to, even if I switched around products."
As soon as Ambria hit the styling plateau with her natural hair, her momentum had slowed down. "Pretty soon, I began wearing my hair up, hidden or simply avoided styling all of it together. I knew how much I loved my tapered cut so I decided I would get it again, but this time I would go even shorter!"
Is Ambria performed with natural hair for good? Nope.
Simply three days ago the YouTuber Big Chopped yet once again, and now feels a boost of self-confidence as a result in her TWA. I believe I have actually found the style for my character and lifestyle! "
