  1. i like her honesty..
    first person saying going natural is just a phase..

    1. Some people just want to grow their natural hair and later on relax it....as for me...I am in it for the long haul.

    2. Yeah, not everyone wants to be natural forever.

    3. Even if she relaxes it later, she would still go back to natural sometime in future. You can't be natural for so long, and not truly see the great benefits of being natural.

    4. Hahahahahahahahaha atilola you just had to say she will try going natural again. I agree too, it's not a phase you can forget so quickly.

    5. @chidiebere you are right...After all the investments one can't forget it so quickly. You will also think of how your hair thrived during that phase.

    6. Yes natural is the what we eventually fall back to.

  2. That fear/challenge is real for some...but that's where the spirit of DIY's and mixing should begin to manifest. LOL

  3. Yeah her honesty is appreciated. And the money struggle is real too. Buying products can get pricey

    1. The money struggle is reall

    2. That's true o...I usually have to do price survey across natural hair online stores to see the one that will benefit me the most.

    3. Hahahahahahahahaha na you O @francisca

  4. Funny enough, there are products for very budget. She needs to know what she wants.

    1. Leez direct her to Ebun for hair_products_budget_consultancy. *shines teeth*

    2. It's a good referral naa francisca

  5. At the start, it easy to believe certain products will get you certain feel to your hair. But with time you will realize that you do not need so much product and most times a cheaper alternative is lying around you somewhere.
