I’m making this blog to document my natural hair journey.
My journey is strange in that I spontaneously decided to go natural. I had my hair in braided extentions and the back rows fell out, and my relaxrd hair fell out with it! So I decided “Hey, why not cut the rest of it?” My big chop was September 3, 2013.
Now, I’ve been in ‘transition’ for about six months. I say ‘transition’, because it wasn’t really transitioning at the time. I decided that I didn’t want to relax my hair every few months and wanted to wait a long time to maximize my growth. It was coincidence that it had been about six months since my last relaxer when I decided to cut it. Because of this, I also don’t know exactly the last time I relaxed it, I do know (or think, at least) that I had my hair in extentions twice for three months at a time before I cut it, and the first time was straight after a relaxer, I think. So, six months we’ll say.
I also am taking more pictures of myself now than I have in the last 19 years of my life, so I am sorry if I am not that photogenic.
That’s it for the long introductions. You can call me FS, and this is gonna be fun!
