This week I am going to be featuring a series of YouTube videos that helped my transition to natural hair. My natural hair journey wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, and I really think that was because of the many YouTube videos that I watched every night. I have been natural for two years now, and I finally big chopped about one year and change into my journey. I know for some that may seem like an eternity when you are used to having relaxed hair. I hope this video series helps on your own natural hair journey.
I just have to share my natural hair journey with you. I can’t believe that this weekend marked one whole year without a relaxer. My last relaxer was on November, 15th 2012. Crazy to think about it. This is my second time going natural, and I am really committed to it. Transitioning to natural hair hasn’t been as hard as I thought it would be. To be quite honest, I had heard all of these horror stories. I thought I was going to have the hardest time combing my hair and taking care of it, but I haven’t. Praise the lord! Clearly I’m doing something right.
Last weekend was my first time at Fro Fashion Week, and I am so glad I went. My friend and fellow blogger Ebony from Make Me Over Eb spoke at this event last year. She told me it was a really great event that I should try to go to and see what it is about. Since I’ve decided to go natural again, and the event was just three hours away I said, “why not?” Well… so far, so good.
All of the women here at Fro Fashion Week Spring 2013 have been so inspirational. We shared our hair journeys, and special hair tips. It was like we were sharing some kind of special hair bonding experience. We laughed and joked and had us a good ole time! I bought a VIP pass, so I received a box full of natural hair goodies that should help me transition from chemically relaxed hair to fluffy and full natural hair. I miss my old hair texture, my natural hair texture, and seeing all of these women with beautiful natural styles is making me impatient for hair growth, but excited for change.
