      Good for you. Beauty standards are very euro-centric in my opinion.

    Moisture is essential to growing natural hair.  Glycerin enables your hair to draw moisture from the atmosphere to keep tresses moist.  To keep hair healthy, don't use any products with silicones (any cones!), sulfates, and alcohol.  Try a regimen of natural hair products!  Loving being natural!

    I have been growing my hair natural aswell. Its all about moisture and maintance as much as you would with striaght hair it still needs washing ect.I do find it hard to maintain my hair sometimes I often comb it out from the ends then down towards my roots. for moisture I use natural oils such as advacado oil,olive oil and pure coconut oil. when I wash my hair I use a leave in conditioner and let my hair dry naturally.
