My natural moment came from one of my friends, she was a BEAUTIFUL woman with the most beautiful 'fro I've ever seen. I grew up in a predominatly white neighborhood where natural hair and blackness in general was frowned uponConfused Im serious. Growing up classmates would ask me why my hair was so "frizzy" and when I was going to "straighten it". I was tired of thier taunting so I just begged my mom to give me a perm so I could blend in with my classmates and I destroyed my natural beauty ( I was blessed with long, fluffy afro hair from birth ) to fit some stupid ideal that I thought was what society wanted. Anyways my friend was so stunning with her natural hair and I would notice as men black, white ,asian, hispanic would flock to her. Natural beauty is so freaking obvious that I cant believe any society would tell anyone different. I just had a moment and I was like "hell, no aint no way, Im going to destroy , hide, cover or change my natural hair with no more perm or silky straight weave." Did you have a natural moment? What inspired you to go natural? Do you want to be bold and go natural?

I would LOVE to go natural and never perm my hair ever again if my big ass head looked right with my fro. Just if my fro was a bit bigger I would totally rock it. Hard.
 
My hair in it's natural state unpermed looks like this:
 
which is just too short for my head and face shape. I come off looking boyish I think. '
 
Now if my fro was about this big:
I would totally be all up on it!

I spent the majority of my life natural...I spent about 2 years relaxed...For some reason I thought it would be easier...I never knew I had thin hair before...I thought because my hair was so dense, it would be thick...nope turns out I may have dense hair, but not thick...So on that note- I cut it all off and started over again.

When I rock a natural style its simply because I want a change.I love having the ability to rock my hair in a number of ways. Its not that deep for me.

I got bored with my relaxed hair. I was always wearing braid outs and bantu knots for big hair. I colored it for a change but then just decided to transition, I felt it would be better for my daughter was well so that she could see that there is nothing wrong with her hair and what we are born with. I transitioned 13 months and did the BC. I've been natural for almost 8 months now.

I went natural to match my curly weave and then feel in love with my hair.

My natural moment was when my kinky twists locked up my hair, & I had to cut off the permed tangled ends. At the time I was upset, but when I looked in the mirror & saw my hair was a fro I was like "Whoa ! Trill this is YOU." I had never been so pleased with myself in my entire life. Seeing that your actual untampered hair is not as bad as everyone thinks feels so good inside. I felt like I found myself a little bit. Funny thing it wasn't even intentional. sh*t like fcked up ends can take you where you really need to be.
