I don’t have a “Big Chop” or even a story about why I decided to “Go natural” because it truly just happened. I have had shoulder length RELAXED hair for as long as I can remember. In the spring of 2007 I was ready for a change so I got my hair cut into a short bob. I LOVED the short hair look on me & began getting it cut just about every 2 weeks b/c I didn’t want the hair to touch my neck. My stylist, who specialized in healthy hair, did such an AWESOME job with straightening my hair, that before I knew it, my relaxer had been cut completely out… As of 2008 I realized that I was 100% natural & I haven’t looked back or had regrets since.
In a way I guess I did sorta go thru a transition… In Sept 2011 I decided to stop applying heat to my hair & wear it in its kinky state. I struggled with a hair regimen & maintenance. Some day’s I wanted to pull out my flat irons & make what seemed impossible to go away. If it weren’t for the support of my significant other, other natural hair women & me learning to TRULY love myself just as God created me… I wouldn’t have much of a story to tell and most importantly I wouldn’t have my T-Shirt & Apparel Line “NAPturally Mine.”
