Three strand twistout
Going to start taking better care of my hair….
I’ve wanted to go natural since the 6th grade…but I simply did not know what I was doing with my hair when i was 12 years old- so my true natural journey began when i was 17- the summer before my senior year in highschool.
I won’t sit here and say it was perfect- I was constantly discouraged by how ugly my new growth was looking with my disgusting relaxed ends. Of course, the lack of confidence I had in my hair didn’t project well with my Dominican family and hairstylist- continuously urging me to get a relaxer again. I knew the right way to get rid of my ends was with a big chop, but I was too scared! I have chipmunk cheeks and really couldn’t bare to walk around with a short cut.
So I stuck through the rough times of a growing fro with frizzled ends- something I suggest to no one. Constant deep conditioning and high hopes help me get through it, and now I am absolutely in love with my hair.

I’ve been natural for 3 years and honestly i love my natural. It makes me feel good to have natural hair and i’m loving it every day.
Hope everyone had a great holiday season and a new year! We’ve changed the layout color scheme to sky blue for our 1 year running this blog. A year ago from this month when we did the color theme each month.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Hair Journey: I am mixed with Guatemalan and Black so my curls are fairly defined. It took me until high school to finally learn how to take care of it and actually wear it out.I’ve learned to love my hair through the years and never plan on relaxing it!

My curly fro
I’ve just started wearing my hair natural and most of the time it is in a curly bun or half up & down. Certain pieces are straight but majority of my hair is curly and I love it, I’m looking for ways for it to be bigger and more curly!
