I have wanted natural hair since about 8 years ago. I was always discouraged and told that I wouldnt be attractive. I love my natural hair. I feel liberated.

How I ended up going natural started from an accident…

 

I had always gotten my hair relaxed as a child and teenager. It was something that I never questioned. I thought I HAD to. I honestly never liked my relaxed hair though. It was always short and thin and never grew. I never felt like it looked good on me. But I thought I just had bad hair and that's why my hair wouldn't grow.

 

From Fall 2008 to Summer 2010 (the summer after my freshman year in college), I continuously wore braid extensions, taking them out usually after 4 months and then putting new ones in right after. I liked them cuz they were low maintenance and looked pretty on me. I never relaxed my hair during this time. By summer 2010 I take them out and realized that my hair was totally different. When I took them out i had a stretched afro! I thought it was cool! I then realized I was natural and decided to stay that way, even though my mom and aunts encouraged me to relax. 

 

So I started to research on how to take care of natural hair. I started to detangle, do twistouts, etc. But then I soon realized how damaged my hair was. Wearing the braids sooo much and not taking care of my hair all that time, made it EXTREMELY weak and fragile. Any light pull could break my hair. I had so much breakage, and my hair was getting shorter and shorter by the week! Nothing could save my hair at that point. Soon enough, I ended up getting braids again and wore those for a year. And then the following summer, Summer 2011, I relaxed my hair. 

 

After that occurrence I had always told myself that I would try to go natural again one day. I wore braids again from Winter 2012 to Summer 2012. I then took them out and relaxed my hair. Going natural was still in the back of my mind. I started to think and realized "why wait longer??". I was scared to big chop, but decided to do it anyway, because I was impatient and wanted to be natural as soon as possible. No more relaxed hair for me.

 

On August 21, 2012 I did my shaven big chop. It's now been two months since then. I haven't once regretted my decision, even if some people have made negative comments. I'm sooo happy to be natural. My hair is only about 1.25in long, but I still feel more confident with it, than I ever did with relaxed hair. I just like it a whole lot more, I love my kinks and coils, it's for me. 

 

I can't wait for my hair to grow more and more and for me to have a cute fro :)

I am going natural because A. I look best with very short hair and have always wanted to cut it all off and B. relaxing my hair and the drama of always trying to keep it bone straight when my natural texture is the COMPLETE opposite...4D absolutely DESTROYED my edges...I have since gotten a transplant and am waiting to see my growth results after 1 year has passed. I do not plan to attempt to straighten it EVER again.

I decided to go natural 2 months ago. I love the idea of having kinky curls, since it look nice on most people. I am transitioning at the moment and would like to Big Chop. I would really love to get rid of my relaxed hair strands, because I struggle with the different hair textures on my head, bt I do not think that a Big chop will look good on me. I don't think that everyone could get away with short hair. I am too ugly to bc, basically!

I went natural because prems broke out my hair and when I went natural I notice my hair grows faster when its natural..and i love kinky twist anyway cause my hair grows fast when I wear them in my hair.

Because it just makes sense this is what God gave me so I need to work it.

I would love to have my curly long hair flowing and help others not make the mistakes I have made along the way with being natural.

I prefer to follow the natural way even it will be slow in growth because it has no side effects and causes no damage to hair!! Smile
