I’m thrilled to learn about a new hairstyle. I went natural and 2009, but the majority of the time I wore tracks, braids, and twists because I didn’t know what to do with my hair! This competition is challenging me to create new hairstyle and also teaching me about them. I am loving every minute of it!
Going natural wasn’t too tough of a decision for me because I didn’t have much of a choice. I was on my way to China for a couple months to do a public health research project for my school and would have no access to a beautician. I damaged my hair the last time I permed it myself so I decided to use my journey to China as a new beginning. I started out with kinky twist extensions and then transitioned into tracks. I wore my hair in cornrows a couple of times, but I never fully embraced its beauty. It wasn’t until I began researching how to care for and style my natural tresses on sites such as going-natural.com that I began to fully embrace the unique and profound beauty of natural hair.
