Why did I go Natural?

I get asked this question quite frequently.

Over the years that I have had my hair permed, (especially in high school) I noticed how thin and unhealthy my hair looked. I didn’t like how my hair looked so thin without any volume to it. The perm was just killing my hair and I got bored with the straight hair look. Then one day I thought, “What does my natural hair look like?”. Then I got really curious to what my natural texture looked like. What it going to be curly, wavy, kinky or coily? I wasn’t sure at first. After I did some online research about how harmful the perm is to my body and my health, I had to stop immediately.

I started watch Youtube videos by women who when from permed to natural such as Naturalchica and Naptural85. Then I made the decision to leave the perm behind and embrace the hair that I was born with. I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t return to the perm ever again. I can’t do that to myself. When I did the Big Chop back in December of 2012, that was one of the best decisions I made in my life.

Embrace the hair that you were born with, it is part of you!
