Welcome to my hair album!
My name is Shellzfoshizzle and I started this album to track the progress of my hair growth. When I was about 3 years old (which is really young if you ask me), my mom gave me my first perm. Why? I don't know, probably because that is what 'everyone' else did and for managability. I grew up getting 'boxed perms' until I got a job at 15 years old and took myself to the salon to get professional ones. My hair has never been healthy. I've always had lots of breakage and a problem area: my nape or right temple, dispite bi-weekly visits to the salon.

In October 2004 I was browsing the 'net and came across a site called Long Hair Care Forum ( or LHCF for short. It is a website dedicated to women of color and hair care, along with other stuff. I joined and have been a member ever since. I have learned so much about my hair from the wonderful advice of these women. Natural hair has always been something that peeked my interest, simply because I was relaxed and never saw natural hair so beautiful and healthy until LHCF.

In January 2005 I tried to transition my already damaged, thin and dry hair. Not a good experience. I ended up relaxing in March 2005. In April I let my friend highlight my hair and my hair didn't take to the color, so I tried to highlight it again later that night. I looked a mess and the color came out bright I went to the store at 4am in the morning and bought some Dark and Lovely Jet Black. That took, but after about six washes you could see the highlights peeking through. Whatever. . Hair color x 3 in 1 night = bad experience and damage!

On August 25th, 2005 I got a relaxer and when I got home that night I decided that I was going natural. I have been transitioing since that point. My experience has been great thus far and I have so much knowledge about the care and maintenence for my hair.

Originally, my plan was to go one year and then do the BC but I can't make it that long. I'm dying to unleash my naps. I have an appointment on May 20th to have my hair cut and a twist out done!
