"The best hair advice I can give someone about wearing your hair natural is to have patience..... Enjoy every length. It’ll grow it just takes time. Give products a chance to work. Just because it didn’t work the first time doesn’t mean it’s a no go. You may have used it wrong, possibly paired it with the wrong product or maybe your application wasn’t correct. The application of a product is so important! Also, you may “crush” on other's hair but for goodness sake please LOVE YOUR OWN...."
