After my big chop of course the first person I called was my momma. It was the first time the words “I’m 100% Natural” uttered my mouth. Bursting with excitement is an understatement because I finally accomplished my goal and a burden was lifted. After chopping off my hair I felt like a new beginning just started for me. It felt like my hair slate was wiped clean and now I can focus on nothing but growth.
Right now as you read this post, I’m still in amazement of my naturally curly hair. Like I said before, chemicals have been a part of my life since I was very young. Literally on July 9, I seen my hair for the first time and I was blown away. Now I understand other naturals who bc’d and fell in love with their hair. Or women who bc’d and say they felt free. These were my same feelings. Right now I’m chuckling to myself because the next day when I was running errands my thoughts were “I just want to go home and play in my hair!” Who knew?!
After sharing all my happiness, photos, and feelings with my mom her feelings about her hair soared. In a previous post, I mentioned how she was walking towards the verge of relaxing. Now she is excited about her hair and itching to take out her tree braids and do the big chop. Of course I’m like go for it mom!! She wrote down product names and watched the you-tube sites I recommended for her. She finally visited my blog and fell in love (of course) and asked me “when are you going to make videos”. HUH?! Honestly, I never thought about it and prefer not to be in front of the video camera. HAHAHA!
Now back to enjoying my curls, waves, and kinks!! Till next time ladies…
I'm just an easy going person who loves to travel, embark on new adventures, and hang with family. The purpose of this blog is to document my Natural hair care journey. I plan to document all the ups and downs, good and bad times faced along the way. Please come and join me on my exciting journey.
