I am new to the natural hair community. I have been transitioning for 3 months now and it has definitely been a challenge! I don't feel "pretty" half the time and I always feel like my hair looks a hot mess. I've had a relaxer for pretty much most of my life so I am clueless when it comes to caring for my "natural" hair. Thank goodness for sites like this. I have learned so much just in the past few months and everytime I get discouraged and lose hope, I turn to sites like this and get inspired to keep going! I have a loooong way to go but I am taking it one day at a time and learning that patience is key!
