You know what I have been thinking though, if you have a texturizer then are you still considered natural? Not that I want one and I don't have anything against people who do, but just wondering. I know some people who say they are natural but have texturizers, for many reasons. But doesn't that defeat the purpose? Person #1 has a texturizer for maintenance, person #2 has a texturizer so she can look like she has "good" hair (I know cause I asked her). I came out and asked her that and she said yes with no hesitation, I kindly told her " sweetie you don't have good hair and that chemical is not going to help you get it", I also told her that you have to find what products work for your hair. Person #2 has a lot of issues with her natural hair including a hair horror story, I work with her everyday so I know, oh how I wish I could help her.
Person #2 gets a texturizer just for mainenance, she is not into doing all that up-keep that comes with coily hair which is not problem, "good" hair is not in her vocabulary. But then again she does a great job on keeping her hair looking great. What exactly does a texturizer do? That is my real question, does it soften it or is it more like a curl? I don't know, this calls for some investigation on my side.
I always thought that texturizers were only for people with short hair but the other day I saw a box that had a picture of a lady with neck length hair. I don't know, I just feel that if you really want to be natural then do it, a texturizer is still a chemical just like a relaxer you have to keep applying it to your hair. But on the other hand if you have a texturizer rock it if it makes your life easier.

You know what I am also looking forward to this summer, since it will be summer break and I won't have to go into work I get a chance to play around with some three strand twists in my hair and not have to worry about looking all professional, Yes I will try some protective hairstyles this summer even though I am not a big fan.
Also wanted to give a shout out to my Homegirl Kysha who now has about 2-3 inches of hair, yes she cut her hair off to start her natural journey, yes I have to admit I inspired her, me and her two natural sisters. Way to go Kysha!

While walking around my local BSS I ran upon this Intensive Mask Hair Treatment for curly hair. I used it once on last Monday when I bought it and again this past Saturday as a deep conditioner when I washed again. You know what? I really like this product, it was fantastic! It also did a wonderful job on both my daughters hair, which makes it a plus product in my book. My hair was super soft and full of moisture all day, and after rinsing out of the girls hair I was able to run a large comb through it. I have been looking for a deep conditioning treatment and this is definintely going to be the one.
Product: Naat Treatment Curly Hair Intensive Mask; $5.99 at beauty supply store, $7.99 on line http://nunaat.com/.
Info: Intensive Mask with Keratinand Cupuacu Butter restores hair, it was specially developed to treat wavy, curly, and wavy curly hair.
Would I use again: Definitely! As soon as I fun out I will be buying this again and between me and my girls I am sure to run out quick. There is also shampoo, conditioner and a leave in that I would like to try too.
I give this product five stars
