Jewell Bell Is Naturally Glamorous!



Were you a slow transitioner or a Big Chopper & why?
 I transitioned as well as big chopped. I decided to go natural back in July 2010 after discovering your site, CurlyNikki.com, as well as one of my biggest hair idols Corinne Bailey Rae who reemerged on the scene with massive and luxurious hair. All my life, my hair was a huge part of my identity and often dictated my self-esteem. Fortunately, my mother never relaxed my hair but years of flat irons and blow dryers completely destroyed my natural hair texture, similar to a chemical relaxer. I became tired of trying to conform to society’s biased standard of beauty. That’s when I made the decision to deviate from the homogeneous fray and go natural.  I transitioned a little over a year before officially big chopping on December 10, 2011. It was the scariest but bravest and most rewarding decision I’ve ever made.

Hello naturals!  My name is Tracee and I am from northern California.

What was your journey like?  
I started off as a straight natural, and I let my perm grow out for 18 months before I cut the rest of the perm off.  From then I was a straight natural for 8 years. Three big chops and three years later I am now a full blown kinky curly natural.

Kanisha Is Naturally Glam!


Tell me about yourself!
Hey! My name is Kanisha Pitchford. I'm 22 years old, and I am an Educational Psychology major at Mississippi State University.

Were you a transitioner or a Big Chopper? What was your journey like?
I transitioned for 1 year and 5 months. My transition was not hard at all because I used a lot of protective styles such as twists and sew ins to help the process go by smoothly. When I was not protective styling, I mostly did braid outs and bantu knots, or if I was feeling lazy I would just put my hair in a bun. My initial goal was to transition for at least 2 years, but I was over the dead ends and felt I was ready, so I went for it and I'm absolutely loving it so far!

Wanda Is Naturally Glam!



What was your journey like?
I big chopped. I would big chop every year but would never commit to being natural.  The 3 years ago I decided to stick with it.  It was a little difficult until I found YouTube and that was my saving grace.

Had you always embraced your texture? 
Yes, I never had a problem with my texture. I just didn't know how to style it once my hair grew out, so I always rocked a Caesar or very low curls.
