Thanks Simone. In my case, I've had short hair for three years now and I'm over that look. I want my long hair back. I just want it to be natural too. I think in my case keeping it simple is going to work best. I'm just going to keep my hair well moisturized, be gentle with it, and let nature take it's course!
Thanks for your advice though! Hope to be fully natural like you in due time.
