The person who always said she would never go natural. My statement over the years was " I would relax my hair even if I have one strand left".
Why such a strong statement you ask?
I took that strong of a stand because when I was 10 years old I got my hair relaxed and it all fell out. Therefore my grandmother gave me a 'big chopped" (who knew it was a thing) and I had a TWA (yes I was a trend setter) until I was 11 years old where I got a Jerri curl (told you I was hip). I was traumatized by the afro and vow never to wear my hair like that ever again.
So what made me come to this decision?
Well I have been telaxing for almost 22 months and have gotten used to my textured hair. So the most natural transitioning (no pun intended) in my book is to take the final plunge.
I am currently 22 weeks pot relaxer and my plan at the moment is to transition for two years. I don't have any idea if I will be successful but I will do my best to achieve this goal in the best possible way. I do not have a concrete plan at the moment, but my immediate plan is to continue with my current regimen.
