I am close to my 3 month mark perm free!! I am getting anxious to do my BC…had planned to transition for about a year first, but I don’t think I can wait! I enjoying looking at my new growth and finding products that will help enhance its softness, overall health, and curl pattern. At this point it is a little taxing to work with the two textures; though I feel I do a great job with curly twist outs that are set on rollers…LOVE to rock my curly faux fro!! lol (as seen on my profile image.)
Wash or co-wash my hair twice a week currently…though if I BC, would wash every day potentially. May be looking into doing a mini chop soon. If so I plan to go to a natural hair stylist that can provide tips, other product recommendations, and encouragement along my journey.
I haven’t been to my regular stylist in over a month…she seemed a little resistant to my going natural…number one factor IMO is because she is NOT a natural hair stylist. I got tired of hearing comments like “girl I couldn’t do it…” or “it’s not for me…” or “man, your hair is LONG, imagine how much longer it would be if you got a perm…I’m just saying…” Don’t get me wrong..I LOVED my stylist, but in a new journey with natural hair you NEED support!! That’s all I am saying, I believe everyone is entitled to the right to do as they please with their tresses! I do! I have worn a perm for years, enjoyed a head full of long, thick, healthy hair too! I am just ready to enjoy MY NATURAL long, thick, curly, healthy hair as well! I love the idea of NOT having to run from the weather!! lol
Wish me luck and I will continue to post!! I just happened upon this website and am SO glad…I feel like every day with my hair is exciting and I want to talk about it!! “MyBlog” is perfect…now I don’t have to subscribe to another one any time soon!!
Check me out on youtube…same name!!
