A Natural’s Girl Hair Story
Welcome to our April Blog Feature of a truly amazing naturalista, like a beautiful rose, every aspect of our girl is gorgeous, she is truly a sweet than honey.
May you enjoy her story:
Tell us a little bit of yourself, name, where you are from, your hobbies.
My name is Elizabeth Martinez.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles but now reside in Honduras.
My hobbies are, I love dancing and writing encouraging letter to friends and family.
What made you return and remain Natural?
I wanted to return natural for many years now, but I just couldn’t because my family, especially my Mom didn’t encourage it. The fear of my hair staying short, since my hair was very long at the time with perm or relaxer, made everyone scared. But when I moved to California for 2 years and later returned to Honduras, was determined to start a new chapter in my life. I felt that doing the Big Chop was a needed step or like a symbol of starting a new and fresh beginning.
Describe your Hair Care Maintenance for your tresses.
Here is the layout for this one:
- First off, my hair is only manageable with Purified Alkaline Water.
- Second, I make my own natural hair products with Coconut Water & Milk.
- Third, I also make my own mix of Aloe Vera Juice and Gel.
- Fourth, I also put make my own Homemade Coconut Oil.
So making and using all these natural products have helped a lot for the health of my hair. Using protective styles such as braids & twists and mixing all those products, works so well.
Can you name some of the challenges you have faced with your own hair?
I cannot say I have had many challenges. I think when you return natural, if you go into knowing your hair is free and wild, you will be ok. It is time consuming and it is not cheap to be natural, but it’s so worth it in the end to see the growth and the Beauty of our Hair.
Why do you truly love your Natural Hair?
I love my hair because it is Me. For instance, I can form and shape it any way I want, and desire and it works. It has allowed me to accept me as Me. I love my hair because when I see it, it reminds me of my parents as I have both textures from them in my hair and it’s just works, just like them hehehehehehehe.
Have you ever dealt with a hair tragedy, how were you able to recover?
Thankfully I have not had a hair tragedy. I think the only thing I can complain about is extensions with braids. I know it’s a protective style, but I try not to use as much, as I am a tender headed person so it damages my hair more than they protect it.
How can girls learn to properly care for their own unique tresses?
Trying different things and researching. I tried a lot of things such as store products as well as natural products to see what works best for me. So, in my case, practice makes somewhat perfect hehehehehehehe. Just have fun with your hair. Enjoy it while you got it, I say hahahahahahaha.
