I have been natural for less than 1 week, my big chop was on Friday, September 2nd! I walked in to my appointment expecting nothing less than the BC! I had no reservations and my mind was in the right place. In a way, it felt liberating to defy the perception of "beauty" and cut all my hair off. All I could think of was...I am not my hair!
|During her BC...how exhilarating!!|
|Fresh off the BC train!!|
What were your top reasons for going natural?
- To achieve what I call the "Jill Scott," that big bouffant type afro with loose natural curls...I am a long way from that but I will never get there if I don't start somewhere
- I am with child, so I figured what better time then now to take advantage of the spurt of new growth.
- I relocated to ATL, a place where I think they are more receptive to the natural phenomena. I have always been nervous about being natural during the "awkward" transition at the workplace. Nonetheless, I can get through my transition comfortably.
- For some time now I have been on the fence about going natural. My husband has been very supportive and encouraged me to do it. He has said that black women are more attractive with natural hair. So what better reason than for your spouse!
Like Nike...Just Do It!!! The time will pass regardless, might as well let it pass on your terms.
Is there anything you are most looking forward to?
Discovering my curl pattern, learning my hair and testing new products!
