I must say my hair and I have had a love hate relationship these past couple of years. I went from having a perm for five years to transitioning into being all natural. After letting my natural hair grow out I decided to do the BIG CHOP and cut off my relaxed ends. Protective styles such as braids and quick weaves really helped my hair growth. If you are looking for a new protective style or even a fresh new hair style I recommend YouTube and Pinterest. After being three years natural I must say my fro had never looked so big and healthy. Personally the Cantu products really have helped my hair with growth and moisture. I always had a big issue with my hair becoming dry after I do my wash and go’s, but Cantu’s daily moisturizer really gives my fro life.
Recently about two months ago I became bored with my hair and decided to cut my hair. A part of me was scared to cut it because I did not know how I would look with a short cut, but the other part of me was ready for a change. I finally swallowed my pride and went to the hair salon and got it cut. But my sisters if you are going to get your hair cut make sure that it looks good both straight and natural. After wearing my new cut straight for about two weeks it was time to wash my hair and bring my curls back. I absolutely loved my natural hair with my new cut but a big part of my started to miss my big fro.
On June 1, 2014 I went to the barbershop and cut off all my hair and decided to start all over. This hair cut has got to be the best decision I have ever made in a long time. I have so much confidence in myself now because I am no longer looking at my outside beauty but I am more focused on the beauty inside of me. This is not only a hair journey but this is a journey of self-growth. Don’t worry I will keep you updated with my hair journey, until next time my natural hair sisters, love yourself and most importantly your hair!
