I hate reading that so many have to deal with an issue like this. When I first thought about going natural, for some reason I thought my mom would be a little judgemental about me cutting off my hair and not getting it relaxed because there have been a few times while I was relaxed that my edges would start to curl up and she would be like you really need to go on and get a touch up because you're hair is looking a bit scraggly. Anyways surprisingly when I told her what I was gonna do she was all for it and agreed that it was healthier for my hair and that's what I should do and she loves the way my hair curls up and always comments on how pretty and healthy it looks.
