Hi, after being tired of blending in with the crowd and having my relaxed hair not match my rebel personality, I decided to go back to natural hair after 8 years of being relaxed. Once my mind was made up, I embraced all stages of the growth process. Starting with a bc in 2011. Over the last 2 and a half years, my hair has been healthier and growing like weeds. I love it so much. I no longer feel that my hair is boring. Natural hair is so freeing for me and it matches my funky personality. I wish everyone could embrace this experience. God made no mistakes when he gave us this versatile hair.
