“Be confident, rock your natural hair, embrace it, and love yourself in your natural form”-Naturalosity
Hi everyone I would like to personally welcome you to Natural By Popular Demand’s website. I became a part of the natural hair community roughly around eight years ago. During my journey I have experienced many ups and downs when it came to determining which products worked and what worked specifically for “MY” type of hair. Not to mention the countless hours I have put in searching for products that work for a short period or not at all, but also spending hundreds of dollars on hair care products and ideas to only be disappointed time and time again. Sometimes it felt like I was on a roller coaster ride and there was no getting off! With hardly anywhere to turn a girl was definitely on her way back to the CREAMY CRACK aka (relaxer).
Now we would all like to think that because a product or regimen has worked for someone else, that it will automatically work for us to. Well one thing I had to learn is, that is clearly NOT always going to be the case. After about three years of going through all my trials and tribulations of the natural hair process journey of clearly just using what I assumed would work, I decided to dig a little deeper, and the first step was learning about the different types of hair you may be working with, and to only find out certain products only work for certain types of hair. Although a lot of it was trial and error. I had to learn that I had a “UNIQUE” kind of hair (Type3/Type4) A mixture between wavy and curly,and it would require me to do what seemed like a little more work than others. This process became very frustrating, time-consuming and costly. Once I became familiar with what I was dealing and what would and would not work for me it made my process a little easier and not to mention it saved me a few pennies in the long run.
Once I took the time to do my research, because mind you I was in this all alone, I observed that curl patterns, texture, density and porosity play a very big part in the game. Once you master those and figure out the “UNIQUENESS” of your hair and what works for YOU, it will make your natural hair journey so much easier and it will also allow for healthier more versatile hair. And it can save you a lot of time and money along the way!
Now I would like to be a helping hand and research tool to others on their natural hair care journey.
