My Natural Texture

Hi ladies,

In this video I show pictures of my natural hair, new growth, and texlaxed texture. The pictures speak for themselves but I'll reiterate that my natural texture is very coarse and thick. I do have some fine strands mixed in, but most people have a blend of strand thickness and softness/coarseness. My hair has very tight curls which I make more manageable by texlaxing, instead of relaxing bone straight. By texlaxing, I keep the texture in my hair and it curls when wet.

It took years to learn what my hair needed and once I did, it thrived. Not knowing how to care for coarse thick strands can be frustrating. But if you take the time to learn what works, your hair will thank you. I now love my texture, rather than see it as a source of frustration.

Happy growing.

I am so inspired by your hair achievement. You are doing a great job in maintaining your length. Just think of the amount of money you are saving by maintaining your own hair. This video is encouraging me even more to maintain my own hair. The shop is so costly. Thank you ms.kibibi:)

My hair texture is exactly like yours
except thinner. My nape is a real problem, as it breaks off easily.

How do you deal with your hair at the nape? It is my problem area as well. It is always shorter and thinner than the rest of my hair. I can't seem to retain length there.
What do you do?
