Hey everybody. So I am back again with my first blog of the new year and of course it is fitting for it to be about one of my favorite topics….. Hair.
So a few years back, I made the decision to go natural. I lasted about 5 years. I used protective styles like weaves, wigs and ponytails to prevent me from messing with my hair but I never really figured out how to take care of my hair.
I tried to wear my hair out a few times and just became frustrated with it. So after talking to my stylist at the time I decided to go right back to the creamy crack.
I lasted a few years but started to see a lot of breakage especially around my edges and nape area. I came to the realization that I never wear my natural hair out, so relaxing my hair to just turnaround and braid it up made no sense. So after a lot of thinking I decided to start over.. I did my big chop 2-20-2012. It had been about 9 months or so since I put any chemicals in my hair, so after washing and conditioning my hair I proceeded to cut all of the straight hair off. I will be posting updates of my journey along with photos and videos. The goal is to grow my hair to believe (bra strap length) Wish me luck…
If you have any tips for me or just plain old advice feel free to post comments, links, and videos 🙂
