I did it!! One year Natural!! Who0t!

Today is my one year mark of being natural!!
I'm so excited, I didn't even realize it until a little while ago lol.

Just wanted to share that. There's been a lot of ups and downs with my hair experiences, but through it all, I made it one full year since last getting a relaxer!!
I've learned a lot of patience and developed a lot of love for my hair. I've also found a new source of confidence and I'm learning what my hair likes and what it doesn't. It's also fun to track progress and fun to use different kinds of products.

One year down, the rest of my life to go!

I think I'll treat myself to a nice avacado and coconut oil hair treatment today
Today's gonna be a great day.

For all you naturals out there, what did you do when your one year natural anniversary came??
And for all of you who haven't hit the one year mark yet, how do you plan to celebrate it when it comes??

Naturally coily, 4a when wet, 4a and 4b when dry and loving it. Low porosity, Medium-High Density, Coarse/Thick textured
It's my hair and if people don't approve they should take it up with the creator, not the creation. : )

I didn't really do anything for my anniversary. I just realized one day that it's been a whole year since my BC, and I just thought "Oh...cool" and went on about my merry day. lol. It made me realize how fast time goes by [for your hair] when you're not really paying too much attention to it. Who knows...you may wake up one day and realize it's been 5 years, and your hair is down the middle of your back.

You know what they say...a watched pot never boils.
I just wanted to say, "Congrats!"

It hasn't been 1-year since my BC yet; but I'll probably just splurge on hair products.

Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!


My natural hair anniversary is less than a month! As a celebration I might do a henna treatment on my hair...not much else though. I really cant wait till my 2 year anniversary aiming for armpit length (my hair is at least to the bottom of my neck.... i think)

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
Congrats!!! Looks like you've retained and gained some length too!

My 1 year natural anniversary was July 1st. However for me the bigger milestone is my 'Last Relaxerversary' (ie August 20). This coming August will be 2 years since my last relaxer.

All the best.


PS My hubby and I have been in our interracial marriage for 15 years now! (actually 15 years will be 8/26)
