So I always kind-of wanted to go natural but never really had the guts to do it. I was a creamy crack baby who loved my wash and wraps, it was easy and painless. I would spend my whole Saturday at the salon like most women and I got tired of it but I did it. That was until I felt that I was depending too much on my relaxer; my hair seemed healthy and was getting long but to me it was thinning. My last relaxer was September 2013, trust me it was not planned, when it came time for me to relax my hair again I decided not to. I originally wanted to stretch it out as long as I could but the longer I went the more I didn’t want to relax it. Before I knew it I was transitioning! Let me tell you…transitioning was thee hardest thing to do; when I tell you I had the bad hair days and everyday I contemplated relaxing it. But I refused to do the big chop because I felt that I had an apple head; so I stuck it out.
Countless days of big frizzy hair and the two textures clashing, boy boy boy! What saved me was the protective styles; braids helped with growth and oil helped keep it soft and strong. But fast forward 3 1/2 years later I am so proud and happy with my hair. Having natural hair has made me feel a little more comfortable in my skin because I was always known for having the straight long hair so this was very different. So if you are thinking about going natural and don’t have the guts to do, I say take that leap and you will be happy you did. There are no limits on what you can do with your hair and I now do my own hair which saves me so much money. I only go to the salon for trims. Being a Naturalista was the best decision I made and I am proud that I took that leap and left the creamy crack alone.
