Natural Hair Trends I Love

Welcome back to my blog ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿ™‹ and happy new month!

My last blog post was on natural hair trends I’m ditching, today I’ll be sharing the trends I love. These ‘trends’ are what I’ve been doing since I started transitioning my hair and they’ve made handling my hair easier.

Without further ado, let’s begin.

Prepoo

If you’re an OG of this blog then you’ll know I love prepooing. It was a lifesaver while I was transitioning because washing hair that has two completely different textures was not easy but prepooing before shampooing made it a whole lot easier. Prepoo is basically applying oils or oil mixtures to your hair and letting it sit for a while before you get into shampooing your hair. This helps to keep your hair moisturized and prevent it from being stripped and feeling dry.

I stopped prepooing for a while, but I went back to it when I learnt the hard way. It’s kind of stressful because it’s a whole step being added to washing your hair but I try to do it the night before and it’s easier that way.

Washing your hair in sections.

I’ve been doing this again since transitioning, but stopped after I turned fully natural because my hair was too short to be in sections. But as my hair grew longer I went back to shampooing and conditioning my hair in sections. Infact, whatever I’m doing I like to do it in sections. Whether I’m moisturizing or detangling, sections always save the day.

As my hair gets longer it’s getting thicker and if I’m not working in sections I’ll just be frustrated so sectioning your hair is key. It ensures that whatever you’re applying to your hair gets to every part of your hair.

Rice Water

Rice water is really popular now in the natural hair community and some people might be wondering why it wasn’t in the last post but it’s here now. I’ve been using it as far as since 2018 when I started transitioning my hair. I heard that it grows hair so I watched tons of videos and read tons of articles and I knew exactly what I was doing before I started it. I used to use it as the last step in my wash routine as a hair rinse. This used to help to leave my hair soft but strengthened.

Of recent, so many people have been complaining of it damaging their hair. This could be caused by a lot of reasons which I’ll explain in a whole separate post, but doing a proper research before jumping into any trend will save you from unnecessary problems and this is where so many people miss it.

Avocado hair masks

Who doesn’t love a good diy hair mask that’s cheap and moisturizes the hair properly? Avocados are really moisturizing to the hair and this used to be a staple in my hair routine but I’ve stopped it because I can’t continue to deal with the messiness that comes with it. When you want to be on a budget though, avocado hair mask is the way to go.

Clay Masks

I lovvve clay masks. I’ve only tried kaolin clay, but the results are enough to make me excited to try a bentonite clay mask. Clay masks are meant to deep cleanse your hair without stripping off moisture from your hair. When I use clay masks, the coils in my hair always come out from their hiding place and my hair is usually soft and completely tangle free.

That’s it for this post. Which of these trends do you do?


I’ve been super busy this week so I wasn’t able to keep to my schedule. I skipped Tuesday and I felt really bad. This one is even going to be published on Saturday because it’s already almost midnight. My youngest brother is going back to school so we’ve been up and about buying him the things he needs for school. Why do children grow so fast? I vividly remember when this child was born and now he’s in SS1.

I feel like a mother sending her.first child to the university๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

Hope you enjoyed this post.

Thanks for reading๐Ÿค—

  1. For me I don’t prepoo, as I spend plenty time deep conditioning. I recently did a clay mask. I don’t wash my hair in sections as my hair will just unravel. So true what u have said about rice water, to do research first

    • That makes sense, to avoid moisture overload. But I like prepooing for the detangling benefits especially.
      I tried washing my hair in twists but they got unraveled too so I use elastic bands to tie each section.

    I’ve upped my haircare game recently so thankfully, my hair has been growing significantly. I can’t tell if it’s the rice water I’ve incorporated into the routine or just a combination of everything. I plan to try pre-pooing, but considering I use a lot of oils and conditioner after shampooing, it’s probably going to be once in a while.

  3. I always pre-poo. I’ve tried rice water too and I intend to fully include it in my routine. I also deal with my hair in sections because my hair is really thick and if I don’t, frustration will finish me๐Ÿ˜‚
