A. I’m from Chicago, Illinois and the natural scene here is growing. I love to see people rocking their own natural hair!
A. I officially became natural on August 19, 2009 and my last relaxer was in November 2008. It was much easier to transition than I thought. After being introduced to natural hair sites online by one of my clients, my transition was a piece of cake! I did a lot of twist and curl styles and believe it or not right before the “big chop” a lot of wash and go!
I’m a hairstylist and have to maintain a certain look. I’m in love with my hair!
A. I received the majority of support from watching YouTube videos.
A. I now feel free and more confident. Not to mention I also get more attention from the opposite sex compared to when I had relaxed hair. It is also wonderful to be more active and workout more without worrying about my hair. I must add my hair always looks good…
A. Since my big chop, I’ve been wearing a lot of wash and gos. After wearing my hair out for a while, I then pull my hair back in a puff. For products, I couldn’t live with out Knot today, Kinky Curly Curling Custard, and a wide tooth comb to detangle my hair.
Just do it! There are so many support systems out there and natural hair is sexy.
A. I love this website! Thank you for being a mecca of information for women like myself who have been “dying” to be themselves!
