Hey, I am new to Fotki, and I basically to joined because I have began my journey to natural hair. It's something I have wanted to do for a while, but I just always thought long straight hair equals beauty, but now I know better. I would really love any advice anyone can give me, it has been 8 months since my last perm, and all I have really been doing is keeping my hair braided. I have not cut off all my permed hair yet, that still scares me a lil. So please feel free to comment and give opinions they are greatly appreciated.
