Be Whole

Lungi was one of the first South African natural hair bloggers that I’d followed when I began my natural hair journey.

Like me, she’s a big DIYer. She enjoys creating blog and Youtube content; she loves getting dolled up, and making things from scratch.

She also recently gave birth to a baby girl.  I’ve included a link to her birth story at the end of this post if you’d like to watch it.

The journey to amazing 4c hair:

“I currently live in Durban,” she says. “Since discovering the world of healthy hair, I had always wanted to grow my natural hair but I didn’t know how to maintain it and ended up causing a lot of damage.

I also believed that 4c hair was hard to manage and that it was impossible to have soft natural hair. When I eventually went natural, I wanted to see the potential of my natural hair once it’s been cared for.”

She said that one of her biggest challenges was maintaining moisture in her hair. “No matter what I did, my hair always seemed dry.”

It took some time, but eventually with consistency, she was able to retain moisture. “Styling short natural hair was also a challenge for me, when I had a TWA [teeny weeny afro], I felt that I could only rock my hair in a few styles.

Products that work well for 4c hair

Lungi swears by the following products and the results are evident in her photos:

  • AfroBotanics Repairing and Strengthening Treatment: I use this as a protein treatment once a month. I love how it makes my hair feel strong without making it too hard.
  • Design Essentials Naturals Curl Stretching Cream: this is my go to for twist outs; it gives my hair definition, hold and moisture.
  • Garnier Ultimate Blends Conditioner Nourishing Repair: I love this product for detangling my hair, it does a great job.

Two things to know if you have 4c hair and you want to go natural:

  1. Be patient with your hair.

Natural hair needs a lot of moisture especially 4c hair.

  1. Develop a simple hair regimen

Your hair regimen does not have to be complicated and long.

To see how 4c hair can be styled, head over to www.bylungi.com or search for @bylungi on all social media platforms. You can also watch her birth story, here.
