My hair story is really my daughter's hair story. When she was starting junior high we discussed her wearing slightly more mature hairstyles. She had never had a perm and rarely had it straightened. She is NOT a hair person!!! She told me she wanted to wear her hair in two strand twists, which I knew nothing about. Thus began my introduction into the natural hair world. I think I've come a long way. I started off using whatever was on sale at the local beauty supply store. Now I take the time to read the ingredients and pay closer attention to how her hair reacts to products. Four years later and she has a head full of healthy strong hair. Only problem is she still is NOT a hair person and is now requesting locs when she turns 18!!! Back to the drawing board for this Momma!!!!
