Hi all I'm just begging my offical journey to natural hair. I started 2 weeks ago. My hair haven't been relaxed/permed in 5 to 6 months.....my goal is to transition without the big chop. I've been reading forums like crazy, blogs for hours, youtube stalking and FB group joining, and, even created one for newbies who are just starting out....I have learned so much it almost overwheliming. Like what kind of hair I have. That one I'm still out on since my perm isn't all the way out.... going on childhood memories I remember my mama pressing my hair and always saying "chile your hair holds heat".... she said it so thick took 2hours frm wash to press.... so I'm guessing I'm a 3-4..... my 9yr old is a 4 to the highest degree... her hair reminds me of brillo pads crammed in a box. She last had a relaxer 18 months ago... she just recently askd to go natural all the way. She doesn't want her hair flat ironed or in braids. She has taken a liken to twist outs and flat twists.
I'm happy to have yet another natural hair forum where I can learn all I can, ask questions, be encouraged by other natural journey and share my own ups and downs and travel down this new and exciting path.
