Yes. I was natural until age 22.
 
I learned how to braid at age 5 & by age 10 I was doing my own hair plus my aunts and cousins.

I was relaxed at 9.
I was happy because all my friends were too. 
I thought it was like a grown up thing.

I was relaxed at 5 years old.  My mom just didn't want to deal with it.  She sent me to a hair dresser who constantly burned my scalp.  To save money, my mom had me doing my own relaxers at the age of 12.  I was putting them in once a month.  My hair wouldn't make it past my ears.

Nah. Relaxed at 3. My mom used the excuse that my hair was too tough to work with and I always cried. Of course ima cry if you're pulling and combing my hair and im tender headed. But I know the real reason why I was relaxed so early and was made to do it Ermm it is what it is though...


I grew up and took control of my own life a few years ago. Did a BC without telling no one. Been natural for 1.5 years now.

Did Your Mom Give Your Hair a Chance?



no.  I got my first perm in elementary school.  then she tried to put a curl on top of my perm (didn't tell the stylist until after)  all my hair came out.  I barely spoke to her for weeks.  I'm already black and now I gotta be the dark girl and no hair? Walking around looking rusty for weeks while it came out in patches.  Teased erryday all day. i cried for the longest time behind that incident.

its really not that much greater on the other side if its not coming from a good place.  my family didnt relaxed their hair and my mother loved my hair and taught me my hair was beautiful and others always complimented me on my hair because they said i had "pretty hair" but they also taught me that their was a sliding scale on that beauty.  my family never had color issues but we certainly had hair issues but so did every black person around us.  it wasnt hair is hair and all hair types are beautiful.  it was here is black people's hair and this is what makes you different or better.  of course it wasnt true but we believed it, i believed it.  if you dont carefully examine every single thing you were taught even your love turn sour and spoil.
