I have been natural for four years and seven months. My sisters first brought the idea to me. I was loving my lye at the time. More and more, I
saw natural curls in the media. The idea from going curly to straight without chemicals is what brought me on board. I transitioned for 24 months, from June 2008-June 2010. I flat-ironed the first year and wore roller-set the next year. My go-to style is a twist-out.
As a natural, my hair has never been longer, nor healthier. I reached my goal of waist length within four years. I’m well beyond that length, being four and one half years post perm. I’ve learned so much from the online natural hair community over the years.
Products I’m Using:
The products I use depends on the look I’m going for. I like brands such as: Trader Joe’s, Shea Moisture and Nubian Heritage. I try to keep my regime simple. I use Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa as a co-wash, leave-in and styler. I clarify with Shea Moisture Purification Masque. I seal with my own Shea butter mixture, and I re-twist/dry twist with Nubian Heritage Hair Butter from their Repair & Extend collection.
