Growing up I always wanted a relaxer. It was not until high school that I got my very first perm! Boy was I happy about the outcome but not the process at all.
After years of relaxing my hair...it was not until 2005 that I had a reality check. Taking medications and being diagnosed with lupus, I knew I had to make some changes. Getting rid of chemicals in my hair was the first one on the list.
I have not regretted it one bit and I have embraced my natural hair with pride. In fact, I have received more compliments being natural than when I was relaxed. My hair is fuller, longer and healthier than ever before. I even have more styling options and able to save money even though I still get my hair washed and conditioned biweekly. The natural hair journey has been an awesome one for me and if I had a daughter she would be on the journey as well. I will continue to embrace what God has given me naturally.
