I haven't blogged in quite a long time. I thought it was time to try something new since my life has changed so drastically. Well this blog will be mostly about me and my college life living with natural hair.
So, let's recap on the months before my BC(big chop). I haven't had a relaxer since sometime in December. I have always been an individual who has never been afraid to be different. I have always been interested in getting rid of my relaxer but I was so tied to "normal" tradition. Even though I didn't get a relaxer until middle school it feels like my hair has always been straight and manageable(I felt like my hair had always been relaxed). I was just confused. Honestly, I was scared. I was scared about what ppl would think. I was scared that I would have nappy hair. I was scared that natural hair wasn't for everyone. Now when I think about that that was a bunch of bs. Anyways one day I had a convo with a close friend and she told me that she was letting her perm out. I decided then...hey I'll do it too. Let me mention, we didn't have this conversation until at least April of this year. Did you notice those months don't add up....I didn't have a perm since Dec 07 and I didn't decide to quite perms til April 08. Truthfully, I was trying to see how long I could last with out relaxer since I didn't want one anyway. I know this all sounds confusing. I was really going through a deep thinking process. I had been transitioned many months...transitioning mostly my mind.
Dec to Feb
I went to the stylist every two weeks for a wash and flat iron
Feb to April
I wore nubians twist for a protective style
I began cutting off the perm but only little by little
I wore a weave corn rows and pony tails
