My 4th Year Nappiversary

I’m so proud of myself for actually sticking through all of the ups and downs of returning to my natural hair state after 15 years of relaxers. My Journey started in 2012.

From the age of 6 I got my first perm. The sad thing is I grew up with no idea of what my natural hair would look, or feel like. I found myself comfortable with being artificial because that was all I was since I wasn’t being me naturally. Growing up I found myself enslaved to makeup, fake hair and meaningless conversations. I managed to weed out everything artificial besides the hair I began to believe was mines and I would hate to watch my future kids take the perm trip I took for 90% of my life. Never appreciating the most precious gift from God- my hair. A woman’s crown is the first thing that most sensible men notice. I rather be accepted for who I really am which means I must first love, appreciate and accept myself.

2012 - 2013

I can’t believe I was once fretting about if my hair would grow back after my first cut. Now I can clearly see that its back and its better than ever! January 2012 (top left), February 2013 (top right), & November 2013 (bottom)

3 Life Saving Black Natural Hairstyles

3 Life Saving Black Natural Hairstyles is a collection of quick and easy go to natural hair styles for Women of Awkward Length hair and longer.

As a naturalista myself I feel your pain of not knowing what to do or how to stlye your hair on those rushy mornings! This was the part I dreaded the most. I’ve always hated the thought of having to fix my hair in the morning before I head out on the road. For me, being a person who’s always kept a busy schedule. Styling my hair for more than 20 minutes became an absolute no no.

Eventually, I realized I wanted to live for more than just the hair on my head. I got tired of not being able to see friends because of tedious nighttime natural hair regimens. I wouldn’t even get started on how much money I found myself spending on products!

Without further a due here are 3 Life Saving Black Natural Hairstyles:

Not sure what a zig zag clip is? It looks like this:

Afro It Out

Your fro can really be your best accessory. Next to your smile of course! Don’t ever feel as if a basic fro is not an option. If you are a 4c like me. I would suggest you toss a handful of two strand twists into your hair the night before to add a sassier look!
