Were you a transitioner or a Big Chopper? What was your journey like?
I remember that I got my hair relaxed one day and that the other day I decided that I wanted my hair natural, but I transitioned for about six months and then I did the big chop. I’m going to admit that at first I didn’t like it, I never had my hair that short, but after like a week I was feeling good about my hair.

Fatou Is Naturally Glam!


Were you a transitioner or a Big Chopper? What was your journey like?
I initially planned to do at least 2 years of transition, but was too excited to see what my natural hair would look like, so after 9 months, I chopped it all. After 8 years being natural, I big chopped again last month, due to severe heat damage I experienced last year after straightening my hair.

Kenya Is Naturally Glam!


Were you a transitioner or a Big Chopper? What was your journey like?
I transitioned without even knowing it.  I wore weaves forever, and had my last relaxer in 2006. But I wasn't taking proper care of my hair, so while I wore weaves all the time I never deep conditioned. I washed my hair only when I removed my weave which was once every month. Sometimes every 2 months.

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.

Shasha Is Naturally Glam!


Were you a long term or short term transitioner, and why? 
I was a long term transitioner, although I didn't transition for as long as I intended to. I transitioned for 8 months and then took the plunge because 1 year of transitioning got to be an unbearable thought.

Stephanie Is Naturally Glam


Tell me about yourself!
Hey everyone! My name is Stephanie and I currently live in Chicago, lL. I am a recent college graduate from Eastern Illinois University, and I would call myself a true naturalista at heart! Ever since I was younger, my hair has always been faithfully relaxed. However, I have always been amazed by the versatility of natural hair. My natural hair journey began in 2013 while I was away at college. Due to the long distance from home, I wasn't able to get my hair relaxed, or even get
it done as frequently as I would have preferred. With the combination of my love for natural hairstyles  and the fact I was away from home, I decided to transition back to my natural roots.

Gabrielle Is Naturally Glam!


Why I Big Chopped
It started with an image.  One picture of Vivian Green in all her short, cropped, curly hair glory. I stared at the image wishing that I could be as beautiful as her. I wanted to feel effervescent while being bare. What if I could look like that? What if I could feel that way?

Annette Is Naturally Glam!


What was your journey like?
I tried to be a transitioner, but started to see too much breakage so I had to go ahead and cut it all off! Since I was wearing a Halle Berry cut, it wasn't too devastating. Well at first. I felt very unattractive and had no idea what to do with my new texture.

Had you always embraced your texture?
No, I definitely didn't always embrace my texture, especially seeing that I have 3-4 different textures on my head. I'm better with it now, but I still struggle with certain areas. And of course they are right in the front.

Juliet Marz is Naturally Glam!




Tell me a little about yourself and your hair journey.
I'm Juliet Marz and I’m a Afro-Latina Hair Consultant/Influencer and a Hair&Beauty Blogger from Connecticut, but I now reside in New Jersey.  When I moved from Connecticut to New Jersey, I stopped going to the stylist who did my hair from ages 16-20. I literally stopped getting relaxers cold turkey and just wore my hair in buns for an entire year. I didn’t even know what transitioning was. I just stopped getting my hair done, and stopped putting heat in it. Eco styler gel was my best friend. One day, I came across the website naturallycurly.com and read a few articles and started to realize that I’d been transitioning for an entire year and maybe I should cut off my relaxed ends and go natural. So that’s just what I did, I bought a pare of sheers from Walmart and cut all of the straight ends off. I was scared but hey, it’s just hair. I’ve dyed & fried my hair since I was 14 years old so doing this didn’t scare me as much as having damaged hair for the rest of my life. After I cut my hair I went to Sally’s beauty supply and bought Beautiful Textures entire line of products. I researched day in and day out about all things natural hair. I didn’t like my hair in the beginning but once I started to learn more about MY natural hair and what it likes, I started to embrace it and even love it. I then started to help others build regimens and answer all the questions they had even if it was the middle of the night, I wanted to help. Going natural has been the best decision I’ve ever made and I would love to help others feel secure about their natural hair and not hide it like I did for years.
