I've been a frequent visitor to Naturally Curly, an "unofficial member" I like to call myself. I've been on this natural journey of mines for 7 years now... I got my first relaxer when I was 8 years old. I decided to go natural during my Jr. year in High School. Despite the lack of support at the time I just knew that it was the right thing to do for me.
I'm currently sporting an afro (last month made a year since the BC of my locs of 5 years). I'm really missing them and have considered locking my hair again---Maybe a fellow Curly will inspire me...
My hair is a combination of 4a/b-more 4b, Cottony/Spongy texture which seems to have gotten thicker after having my daughter. My natural hair color is a dirty sandy brown/red/blondish color (the red in my hair is gone probably from relaxing over the years). I've never really colored/dyed my hair because of the unevenness of my hair tone. But I love to use Henna!
Growing up, I've used practically every product under the sun. My mother was a product junkie so it was inevitable that I too became one.
