Donedo Natural Hair Tutorial - BellaNaija - July2015004

I love natural hair. Not only does it help you be more attentive to your hair, it’s needs and character, it also gives you the avenue to create some amazing styles you didn’t think were possible.

Youtuber, Donna of Donedo is a very expressive Naturalista – she’s gone from purple to hot pink and red and even blue hair, and loves to experiment with her looks. So she’s great when it comes to dishing out new looks with her hair. Today, we are looking to her for some #NaturalHairInspiration.

      The option is yours. Most people I know transitioned by outgrowing the permed part, cutting it and continuing with the new growth. Even though they said they found it hard to maintain.

      Yes you can dear with a lot of patience and tender loving care you would achieve good results. I did just that for 11 months and my hair came out very healthy.

    Amazing but not for me. Thats how i treated my hair, deep-conditioned and twisted it with special care. i tied my hair with silk scarf as usual. i woke up in the morning and carefully arranged the curls and they were well defined and so i went to school.. it takes one hour to get to my school. as i got to the gate, i met a fellow school mate who asked me, “what happened to your hair? in my mind, i said he doesnt understand natural hair and i smiled outwardly

    Much later, i noticed that more people were looking at me and i was feeling so good as a natural hair girl.. i naw added more confidence to my gait, shaking my waist side to side and just feeling very blessed.

    i entered bus to return home and immediately, i sat down, i say make i look my reflection! i couldnt believe my EYES! na so so JESU JESU, i just dey shout. i be like wen just wake up, no comb hair, like person wen no well, like say small kolo just start! No single definition, just like …infact, i dont how to explain.

    this means that all my curls returned to original state in less than an hour for that boy to ask me question at the gate. i no see cry cry. from that day till now, i have never tried it again, if its not puff or the hair is together, mehn, aint going nowhere.

    i do love my hair.

      @Blessed my sista sorry o! U don try small! Next time try twisting your hair with a pomade or styling gel or a holding gel. First wash your hair then put your leave-in conditioner and put a styling gel like an edge control gel then twist. Your twist no dey puff again!

    @ blessed u are so funny true. Ur narration in pidgin is soo hilarious kaiiiii I can imagine. On a serious note dey are products used to keep d curls firm so dat it last longer. Visit d sites of naturalista nd u will get help.

    I am seriously considering going natural for awhile, the only reason i have not done it is because i believe it is currently the “in” thing and following trends is not my thing. I went natural on my own a about 8years ago before people went go go ga ga over it and started processing it when people started going natural (yea i am crazy like that) but i had really long hair when i was natural and it is since gone through some serious reduction since i went back to processed hair and that’s the only reason i am considering going natural again, I am the natural that does weave and extensions though but hubby does not like low cut so chopping it off and start all over is not an option and i am vain like that but i hate the tangling mess you get when you have partially processed and partially natural hair together. I guess my question is how do i go about avoiding fighting this war (tangle) with partially processed and partially natural hair, anyone succesfully done this without major problems. The first time i did this i had to tie my hair every time i was going out till my natural hair grew out (I hate tying my hair it itches)

    I had my big chop like 4 months ago like cut my hair really low, amber rose kind of low, the problem is that my hair has refused to grow long I’m not halfway close to Lupita’s lenght yet, I do the leave in conditioner oil cream and oil and the hair gets too greasy I hate touching it at times plus all these blogs and vlogs i’m yet to find one that helps new Naturalistas, those of us with short hair, on how to manage and style our hair, if you know any, please mention
