My Lesson On The Importance Of Hair Trims

My natural hair care routine went through a couple of game changers in 2017.  The first was discovering the power of Ayurvedic treatments and incorporating them into my regimen. The other was investing in a hair steamer for my deep conditioning treatments. Both were very helpful with improving my hair’s health and promoting maximum growth. However, I left out one critical component that finally caught up with me – not getting a regularly-scheduled hair trim!

Natural hair care in the winter can be quite a challenge for us naturalistas!  Many curly girls turn to protective styles to help protect their hair from the harsh elements.  I’ve tried protective styles as well, but they have made very little difference in the health of my hair.  I always ended up going back to my old faithful – the wash and go!
