Hope y’all had a wonderful weekend… rejuvenated and ready to tackle the week ahead. It’s time for another Max Hydration feature and today I’d love to introduce Aaron Harris. Aaron is one of the earliest members on BHMF to try the Max Hydration Method Regimen and the only male I’m aware of publicly doing the regimen. He will be sharing his thoughts on the regimen and being Natural in general…Enjoy
Why did you decide to go natural and what is your experience being natural?
I don’t remember 100% honestly, I remember during my junior year of HS about 3 years ago my parents couldn’t afford us getting haircuts every week so I had to go sometimes a month or two without a haircut. I then decided to grow my hair out because I liked how it looked and I wanted to try something different. I had the same hairstyle for 16 years it was time for a change! I recently cut most of my hair off so I’m kind of starting over.
What’s your hair type, porosity, texture, length?
I’m not really sure. I don’t think I have 4c hair though. I’m most definitely low porosity because conditioner sits on my hair. LOL. My hair is about 6 inches all over. Before I cut it my hair was like arm pit length when stretched. Probably 11-12 inches.
Some of your struggles (if any) being natural before MHM .
I was about 2 years and a half natural. I am a faithful wash and goer. I would always have some curl definition the back of my hair but never any in the front or sides. It would just frizz up, even with gel. I also struggled with flakes, not sure what caused it but since MHM I haven’t had any flakes. Also I was a product junkie. Always trying new things, trying to find that “holy grail” product. I got 90% of my hair cut off for a film I did and I found MHM in march because I wanted my hair to grow back really fast (I missed it so much lol ) and since then my hair has been growing super fast. I threw all my products away and started MHM.
How did you find out about MHM and why did you decide to give it a try?
I started the regimen on April 4th, so come September 4th it will have been 5 months. My hair is growing like crazy and super moisturized.
What are your experiences with MHM so far?
My experience has been extremely positive. My hair has more definition, is more moisturized and is retaining length like never before. I actually enjoy doing my hair and seeing how my wash and go will come out. The only con of MHM I felt was it was very time consuming, but I’ve started using version 2 (Danabnatural‘s regimen) and I love how quick it is and I haven’t lost on any curl definition.
What are your views/experiences and maybe other people’s view of your hair before and after MHM?
Since MHM I’ve grown to love my hair, I’ve stopped wishing I had someone else’s texture and just accepted my own best version of my hair. Since MHM people have given me more compliments about my hair and they also ask if I’m bi-racial, which is very ignorant because most blacks have naturally curly hair. Eh
Any advice to anyone who is considering trying it for the first time or to other naturals in general.
For new people trying this method, Dive in 100%. Don’t skip any steps, don’t use any bad products and be consistent to see results. Also if you’re not used to wash and goes just stick with them. I hate when people say “I can’t wash and go” well if you wash and go twice a year and stretch your hair the rest of the time, your curl pattern isn’t trained like someone who does wash and goes all the time. That’s why they don’t look good or as good as you would want. Just stick with the wash and go and save yourself time and go enjoy your life!
Aaron also has a youtube channel where he documents his journey to Max Hydration and discusses topics on Natural Hair from a Male’s perspective, you can join him on his channel Aaron Harris. You can also catch him on his instagram page ambitiousaaron
