Well, here I am. I'm taking the plunge and I am so excited. Nope, I'm not getting married, I'm going natural. Yep, all the way. I have started to change my diet already, but now I am ready to take the next step and and grow the relaxer out of my hair.

My last relaxer was April 24, 2008 so I am already 2 months in. I decided to get kinky twists (Memorial Day 2008) to help me along the way and they have been great.

On July 10, 2008 I took out the kinky twists and went ahead and did a small BC. Yes I did. I love it! I plan to BC on January 1, 2009 for the New Year.

Wish me luck!

UPDATE: I BC'd on August 22, 2008!!!! I couldn't hold out until the new year.

UPDATE: April 24, 2009 - One year without a relaxer!!!

Hair Goal: Healthy APL Unstretched Hair
