I Cut My Natural Hair... And I'm So Happy!

 by Michelle Thames of HappilyEverNatural.com

 Yes, it’s true I cut my natural hair, and I am so happy that I did! I began my natural hair journey in 2009. I transitioned for 24 months and I would say I was “fully” natural by 2011, when I cut the remaining relaxer from my hair. My hair thrived, it was healthy and super long. Many said my hair was “goals” for them.

Tell me a little about yourself and your hair journey. (Name, where you’re from, etc)
My name is Jessica and I’m Haitian -American. I am a certified makeup artist and owner of Beauty By Ms Jesse LLC.  I do any and all kinds of makeup from beauty and fashion to special effects. As far as my hair journey, it really started when I stopped straightening my hair in December 2013. I realized I had heat damage to my natural hair and wanted my curly hair back. I did a transitional chop on November 12 2014.


Cree Brown- 'My Breakthrough Happened When I Became Loyal to My Hair, Not a Brand'

by Cree Brown

In 2010, when I started my natural hair journey, I was at the gym and a curlfriend recommended I try SheaMoisture products because the ingredients were better than what I was using. From 2010 until late 2015, SheaMoisture was all that I used. I had SheaMoisture erythang. But, in November 2015, I noticed what I believed to be a change in their product’s consistency, more specifically with the Curl Enhancing Smoothie. I was in panic mode because the consistency was so off I was afraid to use it. I had no idea what to do. The ends of my hair were becoming increasingly drier, and every bit of growth was being trimmed off because my ends were so dry and damaged. I had to do something, but what?...

My name is Nadieya Barco. I am from Raleigh, NC. I was born in the little town of Elizabeth City, NC. Also, I attend school at Elizabeth City State University and I am a junior.

How long have you been natural? Have you always embraced your curls?
I have been natural for a little over 3 years. When I was in high school I did not embrace my curls. I had a mohawk and kept it straight, “laid to the Gods”. This resulted in heat damage, but I just considered my pattern to have changed to wavy.

Were you a transitioner or a Big Chopper? What was your journey like?
I was a transitioner. I started my journey after I met my then boyfriend (now husband) in 2010. I actually didn’t even know I was transitioning until I read about it online a year later. All I knew was that my husband loved my natural hair over my straightened hair. From then on my curls have changed so much from the loose damaged curls I had, to the voluminous curls I have today!


The Reluctant Natural- Jascmeen's Journey to Natural Hair

by Jascmeen of Jascmeen.com

I’m what you’d call a “reluctant natural.” After years of relaxers, something just changed and my hair started to behave differently. It was dry, breaking off, and it just wasn’t the hair I was used to. In honor of my 1 year Natural-iversary, here’s a timeline of my journey and a Big Chop video. If you’re just starting out, here are the great and not so great moments you can look forward to. (A lot of these pics aren’t so great, sorry they’re old and some of them were never meant to leave the sanctity of my Camera Roll. Oh well. We’re all friends here.)
