Learning about natural hair has become an obssesion of mine.

My Story:

I've had a chemical relaxer for 20 years (from age 5 to age 25). In 2004, after watching natural hair videos on Youtube (not many in 2004) and joining haircare forums, I decided to go natural. So, I transitioned for about 3 months and I did my 1st big chop on 04/21/2004. However, because I didn't have all the info I have today, I used texturizers to "soften" my hair. The texturizer left my hair straight in some places and wavy in others. I hated the different textures all over my head so in 2008, I began transitioning again with braids and extensions.

I just did my 2nd big chop 02/01/2010!!! Now, I am completely natural...no texturizer!!

I am not just using Fotki to document my hair journey, I am also interested in making new friends who have an interest in natural hair. I just recently moved to North Texas and I would love to network and share experiences with natural hair ladies in my area.
