When, why how did you go natural?
I went natural a few years ago. Before then, Ponytails, wash & sets were pretty much the range of my styling options and visits to the Dominican salons just weren't cutting it for me either.
One early morning, as I was taking down my wrap, I decided that I was not having it anymore. I went to a salon that specialized in natural hair, slammed a hundred dollars on the counter and told the receptionist I wanted all my hair gone. He directed me to Tonya's chair.
Tonya, a stylist at the shop, pulled out her scissors, gave me a quick smile and started cutting. Once I heard the first snip, my face became flushed with heat. It was literally five minutes that passed before she said “Ok you’re done”. I looked up, and was in disbelief. My head was filled with gorgeous baby curls. They were light, bouncy, and unique to me; kind of like a fingerprint. This is what was missing; this is what I needed. I was surprised but excited. She finished off the cut with a honey blonde dye and I was good to go.
