Hello Beautiful/Handsome Nappies,
I have been on my own "Water Challenge' for about 6 months now and I have to say I have loved every minute of it. It was hard in the beginning as I do LOVE tea (any flavor, hot/cold). I am not saying that tea is bad for you or anything like that, what I am sayin (IMO and experience) good ole H2O does my hair, skin and nails GOOD!
Ok, I was on the elevator Thursday morning (with my BUCKET O WATER), a lady asked me if I "drink a lot of water?" I told her "yes" for several reasons. She informed me that she has noticed me in the building several times was too shy to ask me what I do (internally) for my hair, skin and nails. I told her that drinking water moisturizes your hair from the inside. She also informed me that she is transitioning and was "very close to going back to the creamy crack" BUT wanted to talk to me first (ME??? lil ole ME???). She and I chatted for awhile, she wanted to know my routine, vitamins I take, my do's and don'ts and the obstacles I have faced since being natural. I told her MOST IMPORTANTLY, make sure this is something YOU want to do. After our conversation, she told me that I have inspired her to stay on the natural journey, to love her hair inside and out, to overall love herself and brush off what others say about her natural journey.
I turned her on to the BEST, MOST INFORMATIVE website ever;-) for more support and very useful information. We exchanged numbers, now I think I have a new NAPPY friend.
