I have always loved big beautiful hair. Unfortunately, I grew up believing that the only acceptable way to wear my hair was relaxed.  I spent my teens and 20s letting my hair call all of the shots. After I noticed my hair was thinning, I ultimately decided to go natural.

With the help of the natural hair community, I collected tons of information on transitioning to natural hair. To keep me from feeling overwhelmed, I started a hair journal. My hair journal kept me sane and motivated. I learned a lot about myself and my hair during my transition. I will admit that I had moments of frustrations, tears and total confusion, but it was worth it. Today, I’m completely natural and love my thick, healthy hair.

Enjoy your journey; love your hair!
