Natural hair has long been compared to a garden: The drier your garden is the more likely all the nutrition will get zapped up and die. Watering your hair daily is a must that I, like most kinky girls, begrudgingly adhere to. Keeping your garden all natural, sans chemicals, is a great way to up the nutritional value and keep the healthy organisms that grow naturally — the same thing can be said for my 'fro. Diligently keeping up with the a simple, natural hair routine should keep my locks growing to its full potential of health and beauty.
It came as a surprise to me then, when I noticed some serious — ok not so serious, but alarming nonetheless breakage around the edges of my scalp. As someone fairly obsessed with my hair, I peered at the sections and recoiled in fear. What was I doing to deserve any kind of breakage? Had I done something bad in a past life to warrant these split ends? Was this my hair's passive-aggressive way of telling me that it was going to break off whether I liked it or not, or is there a key element of hair maintenance that I'm ignoring? A thinning hairline is just not something I was going to stand for.
