Hello, everyone!

I've had the idea of transitioning my hair from relaxed to natural floating around in my head for a few months now. It really all started when I went off to college for my freshman year. I go to a college in the mountains of NC in a small town mostly populated by white people( I mean seeing a another black person on campus was almost an event!) Growing up in a very well racially mixed town I wasn't used to this. I especially wasn't prepared for the scarcity of black hair stylists up there. I did find a lady to do my hair, but when I left my hair was the driest it has ever been and she gave me a horrible haircut so I never went back to her. Because of this I had to go the longest I've ever gone without a relaxer since I started getting them. Seeing my roots (and struggling with them) made me realize that maybe I could go natural! Also, I am so tired of my scalp being burned every time I get a relaxer and I know that my hair could be sooooooo much healthier if I didn't put lye all over it every month and a half.

Anyway, I just discovered that there is a whole little community of women rockin' their natural hair on this site so I've decided to just join and use everyone as inspiration! I also plan to post pics of my progress of course.

I did my BIG CHOP!!!!! 7/23/09
