CN: Were you a long term or short term transitioner, and why?
I was a short term transitioner because I really didn’t transition. I had not gotten a perm in about three months because I was trying to grow it out.
CN:When did you BC? What was your initial reaction to your natural hair?
I BC’ed August 10, 2007. I immediately loved my hair. I felt so fresh and free.
CN: What was your transition routine?
I didn’t really have a routine. I was getting my hair blow dryed straight at the Dominican Salon until I decided to cut it off.
CN: What was your staple hair style during the transition?
A low bun on the side.
CN: Why did you choose to go natural?
I was tired of not being able to go swimming when I wanted to and so, so tired of sitting under the dryer. My hair has always been strong and I didn’t have problems with perms breaking my hair off. I guess I just grew out of the perm phase. I had not done any research into natural hair before I BC’ed. . I became tired of the two textures of hair, went into a barber shop, got it all cut off and donated my hair to Locs of Love. I only wish I had done it sooner. When I was pregnant with my son back in 2001/2002 and was not perming my hair, I wish I had found sites such as yours! I can only imagine what my hair would look like right now and how long it would be.
i thought locks of love couldnt use any chemically altered hair.
Your hair is gorgeous!!! I hope minds will grow and look as good as yours!
beautiful. I'm a 4b/c and I love seeing hair close to my texture. I wish I had more examples. Love your hair!!
Your twa looks very similar to my twa–almost exactly. What is your weekly hair schedule you used to grow out your twa into the beautiful crown you now sport? I am so confused with what I should use, trimming, etc…
Gorgeous hair! Love it, love it, love it!
Funny because she looks more relaxed being non-relaxed! Gorgeous lady and head of hair!
