Jan 2009 was my last relaxer. Enough was enough, I had enough of the sides of my hair coming out....Oh yea this happened like 3 years ago. The stylist I was seeing at the time, Andrea cut my hair to cup my face which I loved.
Couldn't tell my sides were bald could you?
And my skin was soooo smooth n clear
I loved my hair short
I kept my hair curly or wavy even though my hair was relaxed
I stopped relaxing my hair, because like I said above my hair wasn't healthy and I wanted something better.
Like others I did my research, on youtube of course lol.
On September 2009 I finally Big Chopped the relaxer off
My 1st pic after the BC
My 1st twist out on my natural hair
I thought about Locs when I was transitioning, but I didn't want to do it yet. So I milled around for a year almost, and decided 2010 was going to be the year that I did it. :-) I couldn't wait so I went the 1st week of December 2009 and got starter locs at Christian Fields Style Bar. I absolutely LOVE this place. You can eat, get a mani/pedi, buy accessories and clothes all in one spot.
My starter locs
This is me now 3 months later.
I cannot believe I'm still loc'd some days...and others I miss my loose hair. For the most part I am in love with my hair. Not that much where I would tear others down because they aren't like me. ;-)
Next week will be 4 months loc'd. My loctitican said in May I will be able to get a style!!! Woot woot!
