#1: Transitioning to Natural Hair PRIDE.
Hello. I've been natural for 2 years now and I've come to a realisation. I'm not a natural haired girl on the inside. I still hide my hair under braids every day. I still feel ugly with my natural hair out. I'm still scared of going a week without braids. I've decided to spend a whole big, massive YEAR without braided extensions. I love my natural hair, its soft, bouncy and responds well to styling when I treat it right. I miss my whole day deep conditioning sessions and spending washing my hair, MY HAIR. I'm 15, and aproaching my 'exam year', so this is going to be super scary, handling my hair in minimal time and avoiding feeling ugly amonst my braided/weaved friends. I just wanted to share this and gain anybody else's oppinions on if leaving 4c hair out for a whole year is bad. I heard that 4c hair retains length better in braids or twists but I plan to subsititue those with protective styles woth my own hair. thanks for reading.
