I’ve been natural since May 2012. I went natural for two reasons: I had a friend who made the decision over a year ago and her hair was just absolutely beautiful. She was my encouragement.
I went natural by way of big chop. I was about 7 months pregnant and figured it the added hormones would help my hair grow back quickly. When I did the big chop, I did not have enough new growth in the front and therefore still had a little perm left. After 30 days, I was completely natural!
My go to hair style is curls or coils. My hair has very tight curls that need to be manipulated. I use Tressemme Naturals to co wash my hair. Paul Mitchel the conditioner for my leave in and Eco Styler gel (the brown one with protein) to style my hair. I love this style because it can last the whole work week.
I suggest that anyone deciding to go natural to please do your homework. Watch YouTube videos to learn how to care for your hair. Being natural will be a better experience if you are well informed on how to care for ur hair. I love my hair natural because my everyday routine does not include doing things to my hair that will damage it. I had a woman tell me to embrace my natural hair and I have loved it from that moment on.
