1 Thing Every Newly Natural Should Know

First of, let me start by saying I finally did the big chop! No more transitioning, I am officially a member of the natural hair community! After 5 long months of transitioning, I finally decided to chop my relaxed ends off.  It was a very exciting moment for me. I believe the big chop was the best decision I could have made. In my excitement as a newly natural, I thought I had covered all my bases. After all I have very little hair to manage. How hard can it be, right? I quickly realized that I was wrong. There is one major thing I did not know: my hair porosity level and how it affected me. The truth is taking care of your newly natural hair doesn’t have to be difficult. But if you don’t have the proper knowledge to do so, it will be the most frustrating thing you’ll get to do.  That’s…

7 Things You Should Know Before Ditching Your Relaxer

You’ve been relaxed all your life, but now you are to the point where you are seriously thinking about going back to your roots and ditching your relaxer. This can be an exciting thought but also scary. Now that mainstream media portrays a lot more women wearing their natural hair, more regular women are ditching their relaxers and going natural. I went natural not because it was cool, but because my hair needed it. First time I thought about it, I changed my mind. But now, knowing there’s a huge community of natural hair women out there ready to give support, definitely made the decision of ditching the relaxer much easier. I made the decision to go natural 5 months ago, and this is the best decision I could have made for my hair. It could be the same for you.

Going Natural Is It Really For you

Going Natural, Is it really for you? It might sound like a weird question, but it’s really important you take the time to think about it. Some women decide to go natural or start transitioning impulsively. They do it just because they see beautiful pictures of natural hair without really thinking it through. But they quickly revert back to their relaxer once the going gets rough. Are you asking yourself the question yet? Is going natural really for you? Please keep in mind that I am not bashing natural hair.  That’s not what this post is about. I am a natural woman and I wear my natural hair with pride. I just would like to bring awareness to certain aspects of going natural. We all know that once you change your hair, you appearance changes as well. I want to talk about the mental and emotional aspect of going natural. I was pushed to do some…
