If you subscribe to Curly Hair Lounge, then you may have already heard about Shed & Rescue. Either way, I am super excited about it and I want to introduce it to you all here on the blog. The Shed & Rescue is a coaching call service I am now offering to curly hair newbies and transitioners who have little knowledge of natural hair or the more experienced naturalista who is struggling to find a healthy balance for her curly hair.
When I started my natural hair journey, nearly 4,5 years ago, I turned to natural hair blogs and YouTube videos to learn more about curly hair and how to take care of mine. It didn't take long for me to be completely confused.
The information I found was often incomplete, misleading, conflicting or simply wrong. Knowing what I know now I can understand why so many curly girls struggle with hair dryness, breakage, flaky or itchy scalp or not being able to maintain a hairstyle for longer than a couple of days.
You've probably been told or read somewhere in the natural hair blogosphere things like:
- Shampoos are too stripping for your hair and you should only co-wash or use a cleansing conditioner
- Baking soda will help those with low porosity hair
- You need to remoisturise your hair every day
- The curlier your hair is the more difficult it is to keep it moisturised
- X product will give you the curls you want and/or solve all your moisture issues
- Wash day will take you a whole day to accomplish.
Well, I'm here to tell you they're all lies.
If you're building your curly hair routine based on these principles or have been doing so for the last months, you're making a big mistake. You're on the slippery slope towards hair damage or you're overburden by too many hair care demands when all you want is healthy hair and a simple hair care routine.
I remember feeling confused by the need to only co-wash my hair and ditch the shampoo for good. Still, like many others, I embraced the advice I read but it wasn't long before I abandoned it. Co-washing has a place in our hair routine, but not in the way so many people are preaching. If you're following this gospel you'll be in trouble.
I'm sure many of you reading this post are irritated, confused, frustrated or all of the above because the efforts you've been putting to keep your hair moisturised, to stop breakage or grow your hair are not paying off or everyone seems to bypass you and be doing so much better than you.
When I set out to create this blog, I wanted to help natural hair newbies and transitioners by providing them with the best information I could and giving them some direction. However, I have come to realise that despite all the free information and resources on this blog I still got requests for help. This is why I created Shed & Rescue.
I was tired of seeing too many people blindly following curly hair advice that was getting them into trouble and then seeing them question why were they still struggling when they were doing everything they were told to do. But there's not much help that can be given over email, there needs to be a face-to-face encounter.
