How to be a {GOOD} Lazy Natural





{The Lazy Natural}

The curly-haired girl 
who is the best 
at doing 
the least. 


Forget trying a bunch of new products.  Forget trying a bunch of new hair styles.  The lazy natural likes short wash days, minimal products, styles that last for days, and very little effort.  At some point during our natural lives, we all fall into this category.  Whether you lack time or cares ... maintaining the health of your hair should still be a priority.  And since moving to Tampa, my lack of cares and time are at an all time high.  Luckily, I've learned a few things along the way, so my hair isn't slacking even though I may be. 

1. Co-wash 

Okay okay, nothing new here.  But co-washing really does cut down on your wash time.  Find one that does a great job with cleansing, detangling, and moisturizing.  For added moisture, leave the co-wash in for at least 5 minutes while you perform your other shower things and you've got a mini-deep conditioning session.  If you are feeling that co-washing alone doesn't cleanse your hair enough, alternate this with shampooing every other week (this is especially for those who use silicones or heavy butters or creams that cause buildup).

My favorite co-washes: As I Am Coconut Co-Wash, Eden Body Works Coconut Shea All Natural Cleansing CoWash, Aunt Jackie's Purify Me Moisturizing Co Wash, Creme of Nature Pure-licious Co Wash

2. Protective Style 

Protective Styling is by far one of the best and easiest ways to NOT take care of your hair all while taking care of your hair (think length retention, low manipulation, and low stress).  If you choose a style which requires adding hair, like braids, wigs, or sew-ins, make sure you are still protecting your hair underneath.  

3. Double Duty 

A product that doubles as a moisturizer and a styler is a winner in my book.  Now I'm all about the LOC  (leave-in, oil, cream) method when styling my hair but I do occasionally forget all of the steps *insert lack of cares here*.  So in my laziness I have found some products that do a fantastic job at doubling as a leave-in conditioner and a styler (to hold the style).  Here are my favs ... Shea Moisture 10-in-1, Shea Moisture Zanzibar Complex 


Be sure to check out my new video on this easy peasy braid out using only SEVEN braids.  Perfect for the lazy natural ;) 


Are you a lazy natural?  Have you found a way to "cheat" the system?

  2. Most definitely I am. When doing the loc method I try to use a cream that is infused with an oil or is also considered a leave-in to cut down 3 steps into 1 or 2 😊
