Most of us engage in negative self-talk about our hair such as:
- My hair is very thin, I don’t like that.
- I’m losing so much hair.
- I’m going bald.
- My scalp is always itchy.
- I always have a bad hair day.
- I am losing my hairline
- I don’t like my hair texture etc.…
Speaking such unfavorable words for your hair can increase your stress level and adversely affect your hair. Before embarking on my healthy natural hair journey, I really despised my hair and I became my own worst enemy. I constantly engaged in negative self-talk but one day I said enough is enough so I started being kinder to my hair and what I deemed insignificant eventually became a routine.
When we say positive statements about our bodies, we are rewiring our minds with more healthy thought patterns. This same logic applies to our hair. Whenever you find yourself falling into a pattern of unhelpful hair bashing, positive hair affirmations will help you care for your hair better, relax your scalp, improve the health of your hair and prevent hair loss.
I recited positive affirmations to myself and that really made a big difference in my natural hair journey. To make them more effective you can write them down and sick them on your bathroom mirrors as a reminder. But you have to remember that affirmations take some time to manifest.
The hair affirmations in addition with how you treat your hair will be important in your natural hair journey. Moreover, taking care of your hair won’t feel like a tedious chore, rather you will do it happily and well.
So here are my natural hair affirmations:
- My texture is different and that’s okay.
- My scalp is healthy.
- Curls or no curls my hair is still beautiful.
- My hair is healthy and growing.
- I am happy with my hair growth and quality of hair.
- My hair is beautiful
So every time I lose hair while oiling or detangling, I affirm that new and healthy hair will grow in place. Hair affirmations aren’t voodoo magic but a powerful tool that help you worry less and care better for your hair. Go ahead and create your own affirmations and visualize yourself receiving it. Send and speak with love and care to your hair and you will be surprised at how quickly you see the results. Refrain from speaking unkindly to your hair as this will push away your hair recovery.
You can try speaking positively about your hair and see if it will make a difference. Be kind to your hair and to also one another. Until next time my loves xoxo.
Love this! I already recite affirmations but I love the ones you say as well! Thanks for this!ReplyDelete
