**********Hair Story***********
*********************************************************************************
Hello Natural Beauties,

I must admitt that I started my natural journey almost by accident. I had always wore my hair in cute, short, relaxed styles that required a ton of maintenance and $$$ to keep that way. I had worn my hair in short styles since middle school mainly because I did not think my hair would grow. I was just trying to "work with what I had" thinking I was making the best out of what God gave me: black hair that simply did not grow. This was especially true in the nape/back area of my head which brings to mind a popular verse from Project Pat's "Chicken Head" song:

"Bald head scalley wag ain't got no hair in the back!" Lol!!

I was 100% sold on the theory that black (4a/4b) hair did not grow long and that the best I could do is look to braids, weaves, and extensions to obtain length . . . .boy was I WRONG!!
One fatefull day back in December 07' I said enough is enough!! The back of my hair had been ravaged by my last relaxer. I had scabs, bald spots and a plethora of split-ends and breakage. That day I had an epiphany-a revelation of sorts: it was the relaxer, the neglect, and the overprocessing of my hair that was stunting the growth!!
To my computer and the internet I ran. I was determined to get some helpful information about growing, maintaing, and caring for beautiful black hair. Needless to say I stumbled upon GrowAfroHairLong, Nappturality, Fotki and other sites full of women of color who were not only dispelling the horrible belief that black hair (4a/4b) doesn't grow long, but they were doing it NATURALLY!!!
Now that I am transitioning I am beginning to see growth that I could have never imagined or realized when I was a permie. I have hair in the nape/back of my head and it's flourishing wonderfully!! Now I am asking that you please support me thru BC and beyond. It is growing so well that I am reluctant to cut off the relaxed ends but I know that this will be a vital step in me completing my transformation to a full head of healthy hair!!

*********************************************************************************
ETA: I did the infamous Big Chop on 1-10-09 and I must say it was one of the best decisions of my life! There was a little heat damage from constant pressing during the transition phase when I just didn't know what to do with my hair. Needless to say I had to cut a few more inches off than I had originally planned, and will probably have to cut more in a few months. I will not be pressing or applying any heat for a long time; I'm just taking everything in stride during this wonderful journey.

Nappturally Yours,

P.S. SPECIAL THANKS TO ALL YOU NATURALS OUT THERE WHO HAVE TAUGHT ME SO MUCH ABOUT CARING FOR MY HAIR!!
