Well, this is my first bIog. I am currently in my third or fourth month of going natural. I have done the big chop yet. But I am at a crossroads of whether or not I should do it. So far, this journey has not been pleasant one bit. At the beginning, I was able to do stuff with my hair. Wear it out, put it in a ponytail…it did not seem that going natural was too hard. However, when the first month ended, my hair (permed) started breaking off. I could not do much in terms of styling, so I had weave braids for the first time. And I started wearing hats a lot.
Many wonder why I am going natural. The truth of the matter was I hated getting perms. It burned my scalp. My hair was thinning away with every retouch. And it was hard to maintain moisture in the strands. At times, I wanted to quit so I could return back to what is familiar. But I knew I would be disappointed with the results. So I am proceeding forward with the support and love of my boyfriend.
Another problem with this transition is that I do not have enough money to go to the hair salon that do natural hair to get the big chop or any natural hairstyles. Can anyone provide me any tips to help me plz.
