When I decided to go natural, I expected my hair to be manageable, long, silky and loose curly coils. I used to feel my roots before I needed a relaxer and thought my waves felt so good… little did I know I would not get any of that.

When I did my BC I was heart broken with how tangled, dry and short it was… not to mention snap back and slap me TIGHT coils. I was was looking for that texturized look and didn’t think my hair was beautiful.

It took me a while to realize that my hair is beautiful and sometimes I still have those days where I want that texturized look, but overall I am embracing the locks I was born with. I have learned how to take care of my hair.

So to all those new naturals it may not be what you wanted, but LOVE what you get.

Can anyone relate?

What did you expect before going natural?
