ThirstyRoots.com InstaFeature: @paging.dr.dre 5 years natural hair growth results will inspire you to not give up on your journey to grow long healthy natural hair.

Listen to her transition story:

Andrea’s 5 Years Natural Hair Growth Favorite Products

On her blog pagingdrdre.com, she shares her favorite natural hair products and how she uses them. She states:

“…please note that this shrine took me two LONG years to discover.  I had to become not only a shameful and unintentional product junkie for 2 years, but a full-time mad scientist experimenting in my lab (AKA my shower).”

“So, just know that unless your hair was touched by an angel, you’re probably going to have to put in some work and time to find your perfect product line-up.”

That is really good advise.

ThirstyRoots.com InstaFeature: @nyanelebajoa is a beautiful example of how to wear pastel pink hair. Exploring uncommon colors for hair dyeing is becoming a standing trend in hairstyling. And, like Nyané, why not try it on a wig.

As a result, blonde is no longer the must-have hair color. People are choosing many shades of funky colors and dyeing techniques.

From colorful ombres to dip dyed hair tips to flirty pastels, hair color is no longer basic browns, reds, and blondes.

  10. Repeat until all of the hair is complete
  11. Seal your coils with an oil or balm of your choice
