Hello all my beautiful natural ladies! I am new to this site, which I found after searching for inspiration and encouragement after almost giving up on my natural hair. I have been without a relaxer since April 2012. I did not do the big chop I am a transitioner and I was beginning to get really frustrated with my hair. I never knew that my hair was this naturally curly, so it's of a good texture but I'm not happy with the styles I am able to achieve with my hair. It's all very frustrating for me and I am close to giving up, I saw on someone's post where they said you have to transition your mind before you can transition your hair and that is sooooo true! So I guess you can say I am in the process of getting my mind right, so I can be strong and have beautiful, healthy hair!
