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.
