How do you appreciate where you are on your natural journey while taking steps towards your goals?
With natural hair care, it is effortless to fall into a place of displeasure and dissatisfaction. Our current approach to caring for our hair creates a lot of angst but not much room for joy.
The good news, there is a better way to approach natural hair care! Restoring joy in your natural journey is easier than you think. If you’re ready for a more enjoyable natural experience, join me today as we take a closer look at simple ways to find joy on your journey!
Accept where you are
Easier said than done. I know. Trust me; this is half the battle. One of the biggest challenges with natural hair care is accepting where you are and finding joy on your journey. Our obsession with our end goals often keeps us from taking full advantage of where we are. We have to acknowledge the difference while enjoying the space we’re in. Instead of filling the gap with misinformation, popular trends, and complicated hair care routines, get a better understating of the tools, techniques, and practices necessary to help you reach your goals.
Respect the process
No one starts as an expert in anything. We have to let go of our expectations for instant success in every arena, including hair care. The results we see in public come from work done in private. Our desire for instant gratification causes undue pressure and unfulfilled expectations. It is natural for things to take time. Accepting this fact alleviates some displeasure. A better option to rushing the process is to evaluate what you’re currently doing and its effectiveness in reaching your goals.
Acknowledge the uniqueness of our curls
The decisions you make for your curls should not depend wholly on what others are doing. Some curls can look the same, but they are not all the same. There are unique and individualized differences that dictate how we manage our hair and what products or styles may be right for us. Your curls are specific to you. When we know more about our hair and its particular needs, it’s easier to identify what makes our curls unique and why we have to be intentional when caring for them.
Create an environment that allows your hair to thrive
An excellent way to find joy in your journey is to create an environment that allows your hair to thrive. It is harder to be dissatisfied when we focus on nourishing and actively building up what we have. Failing to do this makes it harder to be content in the more awkward stages of your journey. As we commit to creating the best environment for our hair, it becomes healthier, our techniques more adept, and the time to achieving our goals appears shorter.
Struggle is not a given with natural hair care. There can be several roads to finding joy on your journey. All of them will require you to accept where you are, become more knowledgeable about your hair, and create space for it to flourish. The struggle stops here!
