Yekinae. The Knotty Truth! Get it! Thanks Cheleski(Miane) avatar
I've finally quit the crack that is relaxer!! Yay me!!
I've always had relatively long hair and I've been relaxing since I was 12 or 13 years old. I'm 28 and I've decided 15 years of torture is enough especially since my last 3 relaxers did not take!

So my sisters (and brothers) I ask for your help and your wisdom on this journey to being natural.

Thank you.

UPDATE 17/08/07
I did folks!! I cut the ish outta my hair! I haven't got a clue what to do with it but hey it's all a learning process. Wish me luck, part 2 of my journey has begun!!!

REACTIONS TO BC: Mother: You mean you cut off ALL that hair??! Hmm....I don't like it.
Girlfriend: Oh my God! You really cut it!! I know you said you would but...Oh my, you look so sexy!!
Co-worker: You cut it ll off! It looks good on you.
Bank teller: Because you have so much hair you can afford to cut it off and grow it back. Good for you.
Husband: Hmmm...Do you like it? (He won't tell me what he thinks but while I was sleeping I felt his hands in my hair for the first time ever....LOL that has to be good!)
