Does Going Natural Stop with Just Hair?


For those of you who have been chemical free for years (or your entire lives), did at some point you transition to a more natural lifestyle like maybe switching to organic products or being vegetarian?

Transitioners and newly naturals, do you plan on striving for a more natural lifestyle?

I was just thinking about this today as I was washing my hair. I took a look back on my diet today and realized it was just crap! I had all kinds of candy and caffeine. Then I was like how do I expect full progress of my hair during my transition if I'm not going to put the right things in my body?

I'm thinking of "cleaning" up my diet quite a bit and see it's effect on my hair. Naturally I'll have to take baby steps. I have a sweet tooth that is going to be the literal death of me.

The above was a post made by a natural hair transitioner who was having a common epiphany. 

When you go natural, you start looking at ingredients in your hair products to make sure they are good for your new hair routine. And this behavior can flow over into your general life, your food choices, activity choices and even affect your interaction with friends and family.

For some of us, going natural is about hair and that's it. We stop relaxing our hair, stop using toxic chemicals on it, and take care not to overheat and damage it if we choose to blow it out or straighten it once in a while. And it doesn't go any further than that.

But for *others* of us, it starts a life transition. We see ourselves differently, now more accepting of our natural selves and along with that, we experience a desire to honor the entirety of our lives as best we can by making changes to improve our health and well-being. We may want to lose or gain weight. We may want to reduce or eliminate our meat consumption. We may want to become more active and we may start paying more attention to our skincare routines.

For each of us our hair journey is different and no journey is better or worse than another. 

Allow yourself to explore new feelings when they come. If they come. Your natural hair journey may turn into something you never expected, no matter at what stage of life your are.

And that's exciting.

Have a read of this thread and the varied responses women make regarding their natural hair journeys and where it led them. You may find yourself in there too.
