summer of 2010 it did my first big chop. my last perm was in October of the previous year. i was around some friends at school and one of them said I would look good with an afro. i was always fond of afros anyway, thanks to my aunt b/c her hair was natural and very beautiful. She's my biggest inspiration for going natural. i'm so glad i made that choice.

I had micro braids. I kept them in for 3 months. I could not deal with taking them down, so I cut it and had an afro. I decided to keep the hair. Anyone here have a fade? Going to barber tomorrow
