I wanted to go natural because my relaxed hair would always grow up to a certain point and then thin out. It seemed like once it got past arm pit the ends would start to thin no matter what I did. So I went natural in the hopes of thicker hair.
 
Not only that I wanted to see what my natural hair looked like when healthy and long. I went natural once before and wasn;t ready for it. I relaxed too soon and ended up regretting it. So I went natural to learn what my hair can do and I am so glad I did.

A friend of mine was natural and told me how her hair became so much stronger. That and after watching good hair. The bit where they put the sodium hydroxide on the chicken and that burned a hole in it just convinced me not to relax anymore Dead

I feel like the choice to go natural or not is really personal. I went natural by accident because i just didn't get a chance to relax my hair for a year and i was amazed at how much it had grown as well as being in weaves.

I talk about what decisions are best on my blog

Hope you can check it out.

my hair was badly damaged and I couldn't afford to go to the shop and get relaxers so I did my own. It got to the point where I was getting relaxers just because i was use to them and to help my leaveout blend better. Now i'm learning my hair and making it my bestfriend as oppose to fighting with it.

it was also an accident for me. i wanted to stretch the time between my japanese straighteners in order to promote length retention. after a year i thought to not do the straightener at all to try to keep the length i had retained in the interim. that went smoothly, so then i decided to not do it at all. i never chopped bc the texturedifference was minimal for me

For me, going "natural", was much easier than i expected. turns out my hair texture responds about the same with or without a straightener. in fact, i have less damage without a relaxer. the difference between my hair straightened and not is so subtle but the benefits of one chemical less are hopefully worth the difference. the most challenging time for me without a straightener are the Summer months when  my hair actually gets drenching wet with perspiration constantly when i go outside. so basically, my baby fine hair stays WET the whole time I am outside during Summer. then when I go inside it turns into a frizz ball. this makes any hairstyle almost impossible during the Summer months. i guess a bun or a pony tail are my only solutions during these hot months since my hair gets totally, dripping wet by perspiration within minutes of being outside. the other months other than Summer, my hair seems almost identical though as i treat it exactly the same and have the same styles. My little bit of curl gets knocked out simply by pulling my hair into a bun and letting it air dry. Everyone has their hair challenges, and wet Summer hair is mine LOL
my goal is length retention. since i color my hair, that has been difficult.  now that i am only doing one chemical, hopefully i can finally reach longer lengths.
ps you know, even 4cs can knockout their curl if they do oil rinse followed by Curls passion fruit fruit curl control paste on the entire length on each strand smoothed in w/ a bristle brush right before slipping on the knockoff curlformer for a wet set each shampoo day. Wrap each night with a stocking then satin scarf.  Follow ups with bantu knots, french twist outs  during the week or  with a seran wrap wrapping under the dryer a few mins.
