On April 17, 2016, I decided to do the big chop! I didn’t have any specific reason for doing it other than I wanted a change. I also convinced myself that having natural hair would be easy and boy was I wrong! This journey over the last 3 years has not been easy. I learned early on that you definitely have to have patience and everybody journey is different! Three years later, I still don’t know all the ends and outs about texture, porosity, etc… I only know what works for me and I pretty much stick to that!
In honor of my Three Year Naturalversary, here are 3 fun facts about how my journey began.
Fun Fact #1
I did the big chop myself!
Fun Fact #2
I had the biggest “What the hell did I just do?” moment after I cut my hair!
Fun Fact #3
My boys (Jordan & Justin) were the first people I asked if they liked my hair. I made up in my mind that if they liked it, I would stick with it!
Needless to say, they liked it and here I am 3 years later!
