With all of the hoopla and hype surrounding natural haired beauties, it can be a bit disheartening for our Divas who have opted to have processed locks. While it is important for women to understand that beauty comes in all shapes, sizes & hair textures…with all of the Miss Jessie & Tahlia Waajid lovers, there has to be some kind of haven for the women who HAVE opted to live processed. Fret no longer Processed PrimaDivas; your haven has arrived!
If nothing else, here at SheIsDiva we believe in positive affirmations, no matter the choices you make concerning your appearance, or anything else. Natural hair mavens, we love you…but THIS one is for us.
You are celebrated. You are appreciated. You have NOT “sold out your people”, nor are you an insecure woman who needs a certain hair texture to define or assimilate you into main society. You are a woman of options. A woman of choices. A woman of variety. A woman who has chosen not to let the negative connotation of a cosmetic choice affect her lifestyle. You are bold. You ARE beautiful. You understand that what one decides to put in her head in no way determines what is in her heart, her mind, or her soul. You are free. You are independent. You ARE still…a Diva.
A Processed PrimaDiva,
As ever, I have to give you some tips to make sure you are preserving that sexy…so here goes…
Tips & Tricks for Processed Hair
-Cowash hair (use conditioner to wash) once or twice a month to give your hair a welcome break from the suds of your favorite (sulfate free) shampoo.
-Use Coconut Oil along with your favorite conditioner to give your hair softness & sheen AND inhibit bacteria from growing on the scalp.
-Protect your sensitive edges with Argan Oil dabbed nightly before you wrap your hair in a satin scarf. Too tired to wrap hair? Satin pillowcase.
-Clip those ends every 6 weeks to keep the hair shaft healthy while growing.
-Always use clean heat tools, and roller set as opposed to hand blow drying.
-If you are trying to transition or grow your hair out of a process, utilize protective styling (braids, twists) as opposed to just pulling hair back into tight damaging hairstyles.
-Drink plenty of water & take Biotin as a supplement to keep your locks lush.
