I have been getting my hair relaxed since I was 5 years old. My mom would do all my relaxers. One day I told my mother If something ever happens to you I will go natural. Because I would trust no one with my hair but her. Well on May 14th my mother died. And the last perm she gave me was April 2. This is when my natural journey began.
Ironically enough my 12 year old daughter is natural. I was so about to put a perm in her hair. All my creme crack sisters were encouraging me to. But I resisted. Now I'm happy I didn't. We can be on this journey together. Finding out the truth about our hair. Learning and exploring our hair.
