Growing up I was always known as the ‘girl with the long hair’. I would always keep up with my relaxers and
since I had a specific stylist I never directly really dealt with my hair. Leaving home to go off to college was when my hair maintenance really fell off. I didn’t find a go-to stylist until about my Junior year so my hair was in shambles to say the least. I decided to take the plunge last year and begin transitioning. Fast forward to today and I am 100% natural. While I can honestly say I am so glad that I went natural, I have had a few personal set backs in the beginning.
I was crossing my fingers and hoping that I would have ultra curly, super soft hair. I envisioned my curls to be plush, edges to easily slick down, and twist outs to always pop. My hair quickly let me know that this wasn’t the case (haha) and I knew that instead of wishing for what I would see on the web, that I had to truly embrace what I’m blessed with and learn to take care of it properly.
