I feel my Hair is not growing... But I am optimistic!!!

Hi lovelies!
Today we have another naturalista in the house who is going to share with us some deets about her Natural hair Journey...keep reading guys and if you have any suggestions or advise, feel free to utilize the comment section at the end of the post๐Ÿ˜Š.

Can we meet you?
I'm Dr Oluwayemisi Ikumelo,  A dentist.

How long have you been natural and what prompted you?
I've been a naturalista since like forever !!! It will be four years in march this year…My hair has just refused to grow (sad face ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข....I think it's  familial....You should see my mom's hair, just full but doesn't grow). I had bad relaxed hair was terrible, poor receding hairline, unequal length at the back and front, relaxed hair just wasn't it for I cut it.

What do you think is your hair type?
I think 4C....Most blacks if not all have that....You know the type that shrinks when it comes in contact with water, full hair, tight coils....yeah? That type.

What are your holy grail products?
Holy grail products?  Humph! I'm a super duper lazy naturalista ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข. I use nothing but shea butter.... I tried using argan oil (can't remember the brand) one time but stopped and went back to my shea butter๐Ÿ˜Š

Do you have a hair regimen? If you do, what does it entail? hair regimen..... I'm just one boring naturalista.....sorry

What challenges have you experienced in your natural hair journey?
Challenges?  A lot!!!.... Hair breakage particularly plus I kinda have SIB (Self Injurious behavior - pertaining to my hair). I play with my hair a lot and pull it out in the it's actually self-induced hair breakage plus breakage when combing. I twist the hair to avoid combing it and I've realized that it helps the hair grow back especially my front hair. When I don't comb my hair for a while, my front hair comes out fuller.

What are your go to styles?
My go to styles???? Any day, any time - braids....I effortlessly braid my hair when I eventually get the time and resources. If not, I just weave and use wigs.

Have you had comments about your hair, positive or negative?
Yeah......"Your hair no dey grow" ๐Ÿ˜ข

Who is your favorite celebrity Naturalista?
TY Bello all the way!!!!!!

What hair accessory can't you do without?
Hair scarves....I make bows from it effortlessly.

Any words for newbie naturals?
Please do not be like good care of your hair, it is your "crown" know what hair products work for you, do protective styles, they really help.
