When I first relaxed my hair as a teenager it was healthy and took to relaxer well, I relaxed it on time for years and years spending a whole heap of cash on treatments and trims and to be honest it looked great. It was easy to manage and style and I did enjoy having it.
However in 2008 my hair decided to protest and it started breaking all over the place I had short bits and long bits and even bald bits. I started to do a little research on my hair and realised what the chemicals were doing to me and my head. I also took a little look into my life and realised that I really needed to start taking care of myself.
I realised that hair is not forgiving and I didn’t want to get older and have a hairline back to my ears.
So I decided to grow out the relaxer and in December 2008 I braided up what was left of my hair and let it grow out.
In the meanwhile I read every blog on natural hair that was going many are in the blog list on the left of my page. I watched all the you-tube videos I could and started to learn more about taking care of my own hair it its natural state and last month I took it all out.
Ok so it’s a learning process for me right now but I am learning to style it myself and here it is, in its full glory….
What do you think????
