I love my natural hair and it makes me happy. When I started wearing my hair in it’s natural state, a family member called it Nappy. . .I guess that makes me Nappylicious!
My natural hair journey began the day I got my last relaxer, August 8, 2006. For some reason, that day, I knew I’d had enough. Enough of juggling my schedule for the appointments, racing to the salon after a full day of work or getting up early on a Saturday to sit in a salon for hours. Enough of no matter how good my stylist was, the chemical burns. Enough of loving the bouncy hair when I left the salon chair, but not being able to maintain “the look” at home. Enough.
I decided to transition to natural hair – again and on purpose. I’d been natural a couple times before but it was my intention. This time, I was going to be natural and on purpose. This is my natural hair journey and it includes being a product junkie. It’s not that I glorify being a PJism but I do enjoy trying new hair products.
