I just came across your post requesting women with 4a/4b hair to enter your CurlyNikki Spotlight, and I got super excited. Although we do not share the same texture, we share the love of hair, health and life.
Here is a little piece of my story. Shoulder length was the longest my hair has ever been, instead of getting longer it was falling out in clumps after a horrible relaxer. After that, I had to weigh my options. I chose to go the natural route. :o) I transitioned for two months with kinky twist extensions. I was surprised to see the curls forming in my hair once it was wet, so I started to cut. You can see my big chop here http://www.youtube.com/watch?
I am a proud 4a 4b natural sista :o) I’m so glad I made the decision to go natural, never going back!
Thanks you for being an Inspiration!
Below are a few pics of my hair after the big chop and while I was relaxed.
