As you can see, things are looking different around here. I'm changing things up, so the appearance of the blog will be in transition for awhile.
Lovely readers and hair enthusiasts, I've finally stopped playing hard to get and let henna have its way with me. Despite all the wonderful things I'd heard about henna since the beginning of my healthy natural hair journey, I didn't think I would ever try it. I was concerned that it would loosen my curl pattern too much, and that was a huge drawback for me. Certain parts of my hair already lack curl definition so I was definitely not going to subject my hair to anything that would increase that effect. Secondly, I didn't really want to change my hair color up too much.
A few weeks ago, I noticed that I had way more damaged ends than I thought! I was doing a search and destroy, and much to my dismay, I found all kinds of craziness going on at the ends of my hair. That's always discouraging, right? Between that and post partum shedding, I was feeling like my hair was falling out. Drama. So, how did I handle this mini-panic attack? I did a thorough search and destroy (probably should have gotten a professional trim, but decided to wait until spring for that) and I started considering some options for strengthening my hair and decreasing shedding. Of course, henna was at the top of my list of options.
