For so many years I thought that having straight long hair made you prettier than others. I wouldn't be caught without an relaxer.. I did the big chop on 10/06/12. I decided to become natural because I was curious about my natural hair which I could hardly remember. I got a perm when I was 10 years old and do not remember how my hair looked without one. I was curious about my hair and also beginning to wonder why straight hair seemed to be the only acceptable way to wear my hair.I had finally gotten a solid grasp of who I was and how I wanted to mold my life and so the timing seemed perfect to get a complete lifestyle change…body, mind, and soul so I went natural with my hair, and eating habits..My journey is just beginning but I'm loving every moment of it.
