I’ve been natural for about 4 month now. When I was a little kid, my mom always told me to grow my hair natural because natural is beautiful. Growing up, I saw other young adults with silky soft, beautiful straight hair. To obtain the look, I decided to use a chemical relaxer. However when my mom found out she was really upset my kinky Afro was no more. At the time, I didn’t understand why.
During year one of the chemical relaxer, I lacked the ability to buy new products and thus my hair became damaged. I finally decided to get rid of the chemicals and revert back to being natural. My mamma said it’s what makes me beautiful, and I totally agree with her now.
My method of going natural was by way of big chop. One day I woke up and decided it was time. I recorded myself and cut my hair. I decided to record it so if one day I had any regrets, I could go back and remind myself how strong I was. Since going natural, my hair feels so much healthier and it takes less time to style it.
My go to style is pretty simple, Wash N’ Go! I wash my hair with a cholesterol conditioner and then add a bit of white gel to bring some funk to my hair. That’s it! Being natural is so much easier than being relaxed. Going back to my natural hair has been the best choice of my life and I’m staying this way!
