A: I was born and raised in Washington, DC. Living here in DC, I see a lot of natural beauties everywhere I go!
A: I have not had a relaxer since back in May 2011 and got my “Big Chop” at the beginning of February 2012. I transitioned for nine months and got the “Big Chop” on my 9th month. I really feel this has been my best decision ever. Overall I am loving my natural hair experience to the fullest.
A. My mother is a licensed cosmetologist and she would not cut my hair for me. She was very supportive of my decision, but did not want to take on that responsibility if I did not like it! I also had great support from my boyfriend whose mom, sisters and niece also where their hair natural, as well.
A: I have noticed two major differences in comparison to wearing my hair natural. One thing is my hair is very healthy and it is growing so fast. Another thing is I can change my hair into different styles and be creative!
A: My natural hair experience has been totally fun and with the right products I am able to see positive results! The only negative thing is trying to find products that best fit your hair. Instead of getting frustrated, I saw it as learning more about my hair type! I never knew how soft and curly my hair was until now. Growing up, my mom use to press and curl my hair so my texture began to change. Now I am embracing my beauty and flawless hair!
A: Keeping my hair oiled, moisturized and washed when needed. Also making sure I tie my hair up with a satin bonnet and lay on a satin pillow on days when I just don’t feel like tying my hair up!
A: I would advise people to do your research and make sure going natural is something that you are completely committed to seeing through. If you want to do the “Big Chop” but are a little scared, know this, “it’s just hair and it will grow back!”
A: Learn you hair and embrace your beauty of being natural. I would like to thank MotownGirl for all the advice for my natural hair! I would be lost if I did not take the time to research and read everything on this website!
