-yes that is me on the right with long full curls dangling on my shoulders…the begninnng of my relaxed days… aww look at my sis & ii 🙂
-the “ii wanna dye my hair” days…smh boy did ii love to switch up the colors. ii actually started dying my hair when ii was 13 with red koolaid. ha.
-and then ii thought ii found the perfect color for me… JET BLACK… my hair was growing, really long actually. but ii began to flat iron it EVERYDAY…to me straight hair was the best hair. and ii knew nothing about a “heat protectant”….
-so my hair started pop pop poppin off in the back…ive never had breakage like that before. and ii was in a state of shock because the back of my hair was.. SEE THROUGH.. you could never see through my hair…because it’s always been thick… so ii had to cut it.
*deep breath* after all that damage and breakage ii decided that ii was going to go natural… it was time for a change. my daughter’s hair gave me that extra push..seeing her hair flourish naturally was like a breath of fresh air. so ii put down the relaxers and picked up some weave! lol… let the transition begin..
-my last relaxer was December 2009 and ii havent looked back since. ii plan to blog a post about my hair regimen at a later date.
