So first and foremost CHECK OUT THIS GROWTH!!! A year ago on Monday I took the top pic and this Monday I took the after pic! I still have a FULL Mohawk and so far this journey has had its ups and downs....
So as a child I had a full head of hair! It was long, thick and crazy curly. The problem was, I was a HUGE tomboy and didn't like to get my hair done or to do it and as I got to 4th/5th grade I lost all appreciation for my hair and BEGGED my parents to let me cut it. They did and it's a decision my dad says he regrets to this day lol. After I got it cut (really really short and a horrible haircut by a barber who had no idea what he was doing) for years it never really would grow properly and what made matters worse, I had started using relaxers which were super damaging to my hair!
For the majority of my life I had been relaxing my hair and it was weighed down and breaking off and heavy when it shouldn't have been, basically my hair was suffocating!! So after I had MD in 2011 I decided the following May that it would be my last relaxer and I would GO NATURAL. So now it's been a journey! One of discovery, one of fun and I'm excited about how healthy and long my beautiful natural hair is! I enjoy celebrating my happy hair! Now this week I have been finding out more about my hair type and what it needs to be it's best and I'm so excited to share this info with you all on our Thursday party/discussion forum!!!
