Member Spotlight: Tara's Natural Hair Journey

I started my natural hair journey almost two years ago and it was the best decision I ever made for my hair!
I grew up with natural hair that was super thick and long. My mom could barely comb my hair and by the time I was eight years old, she began to straighten it with hot combs (the type that sat on the stove top to be heated). I had to hold my ears as the hot comb passed through my hair and was scared I would get burned everytime. Although, I loved the silky look and seeing my hair hang past my shoulders, I hated getting it straightened with a hot comb.

When I hit my teenage years, I was finally at an age where I could decide what to do with my hair. However, I couldn't manage my hair because it was too thick, so relaxers became my only choice. These relaxers thinned out my hair and took its length over a period of time. In my 20's, I got my hair cut every summer and grew it back when winter approached. Being a single mom, hair salons were not on my to-do list, hence my short hair was more manageable. 
Now in my 30's, I decided to go natural because my husband doesn't like weave and I had damaged my hair over the years. When I decided to let my hair grow, flat irons were my best friend but my hair's enemy. Over time, I damaged my hair with too much heat and was so over it. I tried to go natural the first time and went six months without relaxers.  But with working, kids, and a husband, I felt overwhelmed with my hair and went back to them.

My second attempt with going natural was successful because I never returned to relaxers. I didn't want to do the big chop, so I just let my hair grow out and trimmed my ends until there was no more relaxer left. When I was completely natural, I struggled with dryness so bad, I was thinking of going back to relaxers. That thought didn't last long though, as I began my search for products that would help. Unfortunately, nothing was working well enough. I found products that would moisturize but not for long. Once I stepped out into the world, humidity would cause it to dry and frizz up.
I saw a post from a friend saying how NaturAll Club had the best products, especially for dry hair. So I became curious, but skeptical at the same time because I had tried so many products (my bathroom looked like a hair store). I ordered the Full Avocado Collection in spite of my doubts and I am so thankful that I did. I have used it for three weeks now and I see tremendous change in my hair. Not only does it stay moisturized. it has also grown a few inches. In conclusion, NaturAll Club has the best products I have ever used and I would recommend it to anyone.
