All My Naturalistas

I went natural in 2012. I made a bold BUT NECESSARY decision. Since I can remember I have struggled with my hair, it was thin, dry scalp but oily strands. I got perms at a very early age because my hair needed to be “more manageable.” When I went to college I realize how unprepared I was to deal with my hair. I kept trying but my scalp condition continued to worsen. When I had about eight bald spots the size of quarters I decided I would go natural. I stopped getting perms until my bald spots filled in and then big chopped.  Although I didn’t cut it as short as I originally wanted to go, I had a major culture shock. No one in my sphere of influence was natural and most women in my family had short hair. The internet was my safe haven. Two years laters and my hair attracts all types of attention. “I love your hair!” “How do you do that?” “What do you use?” The natural community is always growing and I am ecstatic when I can convert another sister to embrace what God gave her. Even my mom said if she knew our hair could do this she would have gone natural too. Here are a few tips, tricks, products I use! If I can help just one,  success my friends, success!
Hope this helps. P.S. Carol’s Daughter’s has a transitioning hair kit and word on the street is it’s good. I didn’t use it but it’s worth a try.
