From relaxed to natural. From overweight to fit. From existence to Living.
Well I decided to go natural. ( on Nov. 7, 2009 to be precise) No mas relaxers for me. I’ve been getiing my hair relaxed since I was about 11 yrs old. Bad mistake. I’ve fallen in love with my natural hair. There was a time ( not so long ago) that if any signs of waves or curls beared their head, I’d smack a PCJ kid’s relaxer on them. Now I’m constantly lovin on my waves and curls. I feel like my relaxed hair is artificial lol. I know it isn’t and I have nothing against people who relax, just my personal feelings. I think I’ll trim a couple inches off today after my wash. I’ll do a twist out and see how that comes out. I’ve done braid outs before and I adore them. Reminds me of how my hair usedd to be. Before chemicals my hair was thick, curly and wavy. I can’t wait until all this relaxed hair grows out. I can’t imagine the BC. I’ve lived with long hair too long to just hack it all off. My mom was supportive when I first told her, but last night she mad a remark about me ruining my own hair. WTF?! My hair has never been better, aside from the natural breakage due to relaxing. I take the utmost care of my hair so for her to say that..indicates she doesn’t want me to go natural. She says I just need the “right hand” in my hair. Really though mum? Who’s hand is better than my own in my own hair??? Hmm. Anywho, it’s my decision and it has been made. I Ashley Nicole am going Natural. And I’m damnd pleased with my choice ^^
