Greeting..My name is Genevie..I just recently(March) embraced my hair. At the age of 27, I am discovering the truth about the lye(LOL) I have been told by many including my family. I've learned that people wont accept you if you don't first accept yourself! WOW! I was considered by my friends that weave queen. I had never seen my natural hair. Now that Im free to be me..its easy to shrug off other people negative opinion ! LOL

Default Hello!

Hello everyone!
I'm seventeen years old, hometown is New Orleans Louisiana, and I now reside in Houston Texas.

I have 4b hair which is sometimes unfair to me, but I still love it. I came here to hopefully find a way to keep my hair healthy and moisturized. As for those who are having trouble with their hair too, I wish you girls (and fellas) the best.

See ya!

Hi guys and gals. I'm 24 and had my BC in March just gone. Its taking some getting used to and has been well recieved by those around me. (mums got sista locs, gran has a TWA yadda yadda) I've been lurking around for a while and figured i'd join in all the fun!

I'm guessing ive got 4a/b hair but i'm not even too sure about that, guess i'll be visiting the "what is my hair type" thread soon!

Red face For my daughter

I have just joined this site on behalf of my daughter. She's 12 years old and in the last year and a half, the front half of her hair has changed to a much different texture than the back. The back half of her hair is softer, finer and wavy. The front half (surrounding her face) has changed to a much coarser texture that is always frizzy. (Both her father and I are caucasian.)


Needless to say, this has been very difficult for my daughter to deal with. None of her friends have hair like this.

I'm hoping to find some advice here on this board and thank you all in advance.

Aloha,
Luana

Talking Excited and Nervous Newbie!! :)

Hi everyone!!

I'm another newbie, I've been slowly transitioning about 4 months now with only about two inches of relaxed hair left...natural 4a/4b hair, definitely excited and ecstatic about my ringlets AND finding this site. I've been just skimming the internet for articles or information to help me on my journey to healthy beautiful curls because I've been having major trouble finding products to moisturize. I guess I'm still getting to know my hair and what it needs to look as great as I know it will!! I hope everyone's journey to healthy hair is going great. Love to hear some advice from anyone

Default My username is my hope

Hi everyone! I'm new (obviously) and eager to learn how to help my hair. On a good day, my hair is wavy, but I want to have that hair everyday. I have a lot to read, especially on how to figure out if my hair likes protein or not. Looking forward to spending time online with all of you. Off to explore the rest of the site now...

Default Help!

Hi!
I'm new to this natural thing. I transitioned last year and grew all my relaxed hair out without the b.c. Now, Ive been completely natural for 3 months and for 1 1/2 i kept a sew in because I have no idea what to do with my hair. I don't know what to do at night...in the morning nothing. I'm just really irritated cause I love my natural hair but I'm sooo lost with all of this. I think I'm a 4b-4cish only by reading and looking on youtube! Can someone please give me any suggestions on a night routine and some help of keeping my hair moisturized throughout the day...

Smile Hi!!

I'm new I just wanted to stop by and say "HI", I've been natural for about 3 years now. I THINK I have mostly 4a edges + nape with some frizzy/coarse (4b maybe) parts in the middle. I'm here looking for styling ideas and product recs

My biggest problem is that I have pretty severe Rheumatoid Arthritis (w/ multiple surgeries on both hands) which makes manipulating/styling my hair VERY difficult especially that coarse part in of all places the back! I also have problems with dryness in that area as well, just looking for advice support, etc..

Hey Everyone! I'm Courtney, and I've decided at the beginning of June that I would be going natural!! My first relaxer was at the tender age of 5, and I'm 14 turning 15 next month...That's almost 10 years of relaxers! I wish I was given the choice of whether I wanted to relax or not because I hate my relaxed hair..I'm in the process of transitioning now, but don't plan to for long. I would chop my relaxed ends of now if my mom wasn't stopping me! Anyway, at the end of August I'm going to big chop, and I can't wait! I don't really see to many girls my age wanting to go natural, so I hope I could find someone here who is going through the same thing

Hey yall,
I'm 19 years old and currently enrolled in college (woot woot c/o 2013) I recently did the Big Chopon May 24th of this year after 11 months and 2 weeks of transitioning. I was trying to transition for 18 months but I just couldn't take it anymore lol. In all honestly it was one of the most liberating things I have ever done. I believe my hair texture is 4a/4b and I have this weird patch of hair in the back that is probably 3b/c it just naturally curls on it's own without me having to style it which is convenient yet annoying at the same time. Anywho I joined the site to be able to get and share information.

Peace & Love

Hello All
I finally decided to join! I've been coming across this site for quite some time now but never joined.
I'm a newbie to the site but not to natural hair. I've actually been natural for 5 years now but have only been having fun with my hair and absolutely loving it for 2 years. Hopefully, I can get some good info and also meet some new natural Queens.
*PEACE*
