Neese- A Story of Transition

By January 27th, 20214 Comments

-Were you a long term or short term transitioner, and why?
Short short term lol…..I began cutting my hair in march from below SL to mid-neck length then from there to the Rihannas new cut then i cut the whole back off natural….then this november I BC’d…its only because i’m soooo impatient…luckily my hair grows pretty fast! I actually was supposed to start transitioning this summer and went the whole summer without the crack but i chickened out and permed again…sigh

-When did you BC? What was your initial reaction to your natural hair?
I BC’d after class on Tuesday November 11th….I am really attached to my hair so I was freaking out! like seriously freaked out…my hair really does determine my mood…sad I know :/

-What was your transition routine? Staple Hair Styles?
I co washed everyday and flat ironed initially but I lost my patience and wanted a change so I cut it!

-How did you moisturize your hair to prevent breakage at the new growth line?
I didn’t…I was really bad to my hair but I did use this carrot oil spray that helped my edges recover.

-Why did you choose to go natural? Are you happy with your decision?
I always wanted to go natural but I got perms out of habit, plus my family is from the deep south and aren’t cool with naps :( and my grandma and mom and brothers are still mad that I cut my hair. I am sooo happy about it, my friends are all natural and I have a lot of support from my best friends…I can’t stop touching my hair and I can’t wait ’til it grows out more and I can do henna! I’m so obsessed with everything natural its ridiculous.
