MahoganyCurls Celebrates 1 Year!

MahoganyCurls is celebrating her 1 year natural anniversary and she is sharing her progress with the community! Ladies, I think we’ve lost our TWA guru… that ain’t no TWA no more ;)

MahoganyCurls Celebrates 1 Year!

It has been a year since I went natural and I wanted to share my hair journey with the lovely ladies on this site! I love my natural hair! Going natural was one of the best decisions I have made in my life. I would like to thank you and many others that gave me the inspiration to go ahead and do it. I hope I can have that impact on someone as well. Thank you!

    Months later… I am searching for her online, too :( I can't find her.

  • Miz Flow says:

    I can't find any trace of mahogany curls anymore: not on youtube, facebook, where! Anyone know where she went? :(

  • Beautifully Centered says:

    Wow, your hair is truly admirable. I really wish I could follow your advice and Big Chop, which I've been contemplating on for so long now, but I can't find the balls to do it. Lol, and my facial structure is so much different from yours so I'm not sure it will look right.
    It's amazing how time flies! and congrats on your 1 yr anniv.!!!!

    What's your hair type? and I love the way your hair is so moisturized and the way your curls pop, what do you use?

  • kbelle says:

    Congratulations! I have followed you while I was transitioning and your videos was one of the first I watched after BC'ing (12/2/09) while trying to figure out my TWA days.

    Wow, I will repeat you and your hair are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing that. I am a 15 month transitioner and haven't done the bc yet and your footage is so inspiring. I may do the chop sooner. :)

    by the way, i love your music selections. Who are the artists and what are the song titles?

    Thanks again.

    congratulations!!! I'm long term transitioner and am in my 8th month. I'm not very good at taking care of my hair so im experiencing a lot of breakage specially in the front. =(
    Im not sure if anyone asked this question already but what make up products and mousterizers do you use? do you use concealers? your skin looks beautiful =)you should consider doing a make up tutorial? =)

  • CrimsonButterfly says:

    What texture would you classify your hair. Its really beautiful, I haven't watched the video yet (I'm at work), but your face and complexion compliments your curls….I love your hair on you…

    Honestly, I think you should do another BC. You pull off short hair SO well, wow. You are beautiful.

  • Veronica says:

    MC is just as cute as she can be!!!

    Congrats to you and keep it going! I did my BC on the 6th of this month and I'm so excited that I did. Just to let you know you were one of my inspirations to just go ahead and get my TWA on! lol

    Congratulations on your one year! Your video is beautiful and inspirational.

  • Rejani'sNaturalCosmetics says:

    Congratulations! I continually turn to this site for encouragement. I BC 2 weeks ago, prematurely due to losing my hair. I look at your photos and remember why I decided to join this incredible collection of women who've decided to take back their hair and take on a beautiful new personality. Your pics are wonderful:)

    What a beautiful video!! And to share with us your husband and baby makes it all the more special. I am also celebrating 1 year next week!!! I am constantly in awe about just how many of us are going back to our natural hair roots! The youtube videos, the blogs, the forums, the whole community of us uplifting each other to embrace the unique hair what God gave us is just overwhelming.

    I especially notice that women who have what many would consider enviable permed hair – thick, bouncy, long, shiny, etc have decided to go natural and chop it all off! Thank was so shocking to me. When my hair was permed it was a mess usually, lol. My hair is fine and so the perm just sucked the life out of my hair. It was shoulder length but thin and wispy. When I went natural and actually saw my real hair texture for the first time it was so liberating. And now with a year of growth I have big bushy hair and I am in love everyday. Even on the days when I get frustrated with tangles, knots and dryness, lol. You ladies rock!! Peace & Love, Stasea

    it's been a year for me too and my hair looks nothing like that i am so disappointed. it's so kinky no curl at all … smh this is getting so frustrating.

    Not everyone's hair is supposed to be the texture of Mahoganycurls's hair.

    This site has photos of beautiful women w/ beautiful 4a/4b hair. Go through it, you'll see.

  • JollyJoy says:

    Happy anniversary! Beautiful hair, beautiful woman! Makes me want to BC all over again ;)!

    Clap, clap…BRAVO!!! Beautiful! Thank you for the inspiration!! I love my TWA, but can't wait until I have some more growth.

  • Unknown says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this video. This is inspiration. Your pictures are awesome. I am approaching month 2 since I BC. I am loving my natural hair. I plan to document as well.

  • shapeyourbodybeautiful says:

    Happy anniversary! Your hair is beautiful. Thank you for all you do…..your my hair model. It seems our hair is growing together. I thought I was still a twa but when I did my first two strand twist, I realized I don't have a twa anymore LOL, so I am ready for the next chapter

    One word: Gorgeous You and your s/o make a gorgeous couple. Very cute. Happy Anniversary.

    Congrats! Your natural hair looks ten times better then when it was relaxed.

  • Anonymous says:

    I would just like to say that your hair is beautiful. My last relaxer was at the end of Nov I don't know the exact date. I am starting to feel that frustration because I didn't do the big chop and my hair is past my shoulders, so combing and figuring out hair styles has been a pain. You just gave me more motivation on the BC so thank you

  • LaTonya says:

    Your hair is beautiful. How do you get it to curl like that? What do you use to moisturize? What kind of gel do you use to create the deep wave look. Congrats on your one year anniversary. I was too scared to do a BIG CHOP so I am still transitioning since November 2008. Almost there!

  • saybella says:

    Like everyone has said you are very Beautiful, i have subscribe to you on you-tube and your Chanel is awesome, i was wondering what exactly did you do to your hair in the top picture (the purple shirt). You inspire many, thank you.

    What a nice pictorial. Brought a smile to my face. Your hair looks fabulous at all stages. Wish I had a knack for accessorizing the way you do.

    And I loved the couple shots. You two make a stunning pair.

    MahoganyCurls' hair is beautiful…relaxed or natural. However, her BC hair style was absolutely stunning on her. Her hair is simply amazing! ;0)
