Hello all !

My name is Maya, as you've probably read by now lol. I'm just a chill southern belle, with a goofy sense of humor & truly admire everyone who's bold enough to rock their true natural texture !
I joined fotki because of the abundance of natural hair photo albums and all of the wonderful people that post them. Don't be "scurred" ;) to leave me a message in my guestbook or a comment on my pictures lol 9 times out of 10 i will go to your page & return the favor. i don't bite, i promise lol


-----> I BC'd on SEPTEMBER 30th 2009 after 7 1/2 months of transitioning ! I feel so great about it..it's definitely lifted a weight off of my shoulders


22 MONTHS NATURAL -- JULY 30, 2011


I don't necessarily have any "hair goals".... but since my hair was BSL when I started to transition, I want to see how long it will take me to get to WAIST LENGTH ... but I'm not giving myself a deadline like a lot of ppl because it seems like they get a little hair obsessed .. & I'm just too lazy for all of that lol

--- HAIR TYPE ---

If you go by the LOIS hair type system, my pattern is a combination of "OS" ... which means i have spirals [or coils] (O) & s-curls (S)

If you go by Andre Walker's hair type system, my pattern/texture is a half&half combination of 3c & 4a ....


I decided in February 2009 that I didn't want to go through the long and drawn out process of getting perms/relaxers anymore. The lengths my hair has been in the past were: mbl, then bsl, and lastly a little above bsl. It is the thinnest that it's ever been and I need a major change. So here I am now ! I found myself watching hundreds of youtube natural hair journey videos lol. They gave me the final push for my decision and I don't regret it at all. I'm very excited to see the finished product that will become of my hair in the future.

Check out my albums and please don't hesitate to give any advice about this process or even products that i should invest in because I'm going to need all the help that I get lol
