Hey ladies (& everyone else)!
My name is Ahree and I've been off the creamy crack since November 2009...(hand clapping & whistling)...
I must say that I've had my ups and downs during this journey but I wouldn't trade this trip for nuthin! I was born and raised in the STL (St. Louis) where I currently reside with my family. The one thing that I've always had to worry about whether I was relaxed or natural, was the humidity!!! It doesn't matter what I do...my hair is so swollen it looks like a pair of size 11 stuck in a size 9 shoe...not pretty!
My 12yo daughter is also natural and has beautiful cork screw hair. She's at the age where she's waiting to wear it straightened, which I don't mind in the winter, but come spring and summer, it's back to it's natural state!
Although I'm not on the relaxer any more, I do still color my hair. That is something that I can't do cold turkey and will have to wean myself off. I'm going to try to only get hi-lights and only do it twice this year...stay tuned for that and all my other (miss)adventures!!!
