I decided to go natural about 2yrs ago, I grew my hair out of a long time relaxer for about 2mos and then did the big chop May 21st of 2008. I have loved every minute since! Ive seen my hair go from its initial short frizzy dried out look to a head of glorious healthy moisturized hair. I truly understand the meaning of crowning glory now. I am so proud of my hair and so happy that I decided to go natural. I have never felt more authentic or more free.
4 Months Post BC 1 year natural
Over the years I have come up with a regimen that works for me; I use Vo5 moisture milks and White Rain condish for cowashing, EO Lavender and Aloe as a leave in and ECO olive oil gel for styling. I deviate a little when I get bored or sometimes if I was a deep moisture treatment I will pick up some bedhead moisture maniac and do a deep treatment. I just love the ease of natural hair and I would recomend any one considering it to give it a go. You can always go back to relaxers, texturizers or whatever. I never realized how much of myself I wasnt loving until I loved myself fully and being natural has helped me arrive at that place.
