Why Thandie Newton's Right to Ditch Hair Relaxer for Her Kids02:23 - Wednesday 07 March 2012 - In Categories UK Entertainment, Lifestyle, US Videos
The British actress made the decision after watching Chris Rock’s documentary film, Good Hair (above).
Personally, it’s been four years since I stopped putting chemicals in my hair, and it’s never been healthier.
Before going natural, I had to be patient and grow out the relaxer in my hair by wearing plaits and twists for a year, but it was undoubtedly worth it.
Now, thanks to my hairdresser (award-winning stylist Lisa Louis), I wear my hair straight, curly, in plaits – whatever!
And I’ve come to learn the idea of having to use chemicals to straighten your hair is a myth; a dangerous one too.
The trick is to give your hair regular trims and moisturising treatments and, more importantly, invest in a little time-consuming upkeep.
Trust me, give it a try.
