i started my journey to natural back in september '07. that was my last relaxer. i transitioned for about 9 months and during that time got a lot of great information from nappturality.com. there is a wealth of information on that site.
i bc'd in june '08 and had about 4 inches of stretched natural hair.
i wish i had documented my progress sooner, but hey i'm glad i'm here now!

~~~~~~
happy nappiversary!!!!! june 20th!!!! one whole year! wow!! i am so excited to have made the one year mark. i have learned so much during this time and met so many fabulous napptural women who have all made this journey so special for me. thank you to fotki and to np.com and the ladies who grace my albums w/ kind words of encouragement!!!

i am on a quest to retain GROWTH!!! in the end, its all about healthy hair and healthy hair will take you to your ultimate growth goals!!!

happy hair growing everyone!!! and thank you sooo much for your sisterhood!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ok, so after a long absence i am BACK on fotki, posting pics! my hair had a good 2010 and i'm looking forward to an even better 2011. my routine has become very simple: i wash (co-wash) once a week, apply a little leave-in, some hair milk, seal (usually w/ oyin's bsp) and braid it up into about 8 braids. the next day i usually take the braids out, my hair is still wet, and pull back into a bun. i've been bunning A LOT this year. at night i braid it back up to avoid tangles. later in the week, i might let my hair out...usually on the weekends before washing again. that's it: simple.
i wish you happy and healthy hair for the new year!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
well, i'm back after another extended absence...it's now 2012 and my hair and i have found a very uncomplicated routine. i am actually still doing what i started the last time i wrote. hard to believe...but yeah, i guess i am lazy but my hair seems to be doing fine.
i will be back soon to update my albums and to check out everyone's lovely locks!!! happy and nappy!!!
