Are you ready for a fresh start?
The new year is in full swing. We’ve left some things that weren’t serving us in 2020, and we’re dedicated to embracing a better way to do natural hair care. You’re excited about the prospect of being more intentional and want to make sure that it doesn’t involve doing more of the same.
Showing up for your curls in a way that doesn’t involve being overworked and under fulfilled requires the right work. If you’re curious about ways to be more intentional on your natural journey, you’re in the right spot! Today we’re taking a closer look at three ways to focus on what matters and become more intentional on our natural journeys!
Being more intentional on your natural journey is a process. It requires the right mix of letting go and realigning your focus. If you’re ready for a fresh start and want to be more intentional, start with these three steps.
Stop chasing products claims
Products are a necessary part of natural hair care. They are tools to help us create the environment required for our curls to flourish. However, some product claims will have us focusing on aesthetics only without considering what our hair needs. Don’t get drawn in by products claims. If you want to be more intentional, take the time to learn your hair’s specific needs. Then, select products to meet those needs. The result – realistic expectations and healthy hair that yields the definition, longevity, and look you desire.
Stay away from trends
If we’re honest, we’ll have to admit that last year had some crazy hair care trends. Washing your curls with Dawn, sweet potato hair mask, vagisil, miconazole, and blue magic, it’s amazing some of us still have hair! If we’re going to be more intentional about natural hair care, we have to move away from trends and stick to facts. The truth, healthy hair doesn’t require all of that. Save yourself time, money, and frustration and get back to the basics of natural hair care. Intentionality brings a certain level of ease that can’t be found in popular trends. So, please do yourself a favor and let them go.
Let go of comparison
It’s hard to see a beautiful head defined curls, hear stories of “accelerated “hair growth, or see someone “master” hair care overnight and not think that you might be doing something wrong. Spoiler alert, they may be doing something wrong as well. Several factors affect the way our curls show up. Wasting time on comparison prevents us from addressing our hair’s needs and maximizing its potential. It can also make us feel ashamed or insecure about our journeys and downplay our accomplishments. If you want to be more intentional on this journey, resist the urge for comparison. Then, double down on learning about and addressing your hair’s needs.
Being more intentional is easier when we know where to place our focus. Starting with these three steps can drastically change how we show up for our curls. And increase our level of enjoyment on this journey.
