Natural Hair Journey, The “Why

When I was debating about going natural it was super hard for me. Being a Dominican young lady with several family members that own salons I just grew up always getting my hair done. When I was 11 I wanted to get a perm so bad so my hair could be super straight… big mistake. Turns out the salon lady put a grown women perm on me and left it in for too long. When she took this perm out I noticed my hair was straight but also very thin I regretted it instantly. Then after that I would always wet my hair and leave it wet. That also contributed to me loosing so much hair. Bottom line is I was pissed and looked like little bill for those years of my life. At 16 I decided to chill out and let my hair breathe and I stopped perming it. After that I was stuck transitioning for a year because I didn’t want to cut my hair. I was still going to the salon but not as much around this time. I finally cut my hair Ito a bob and got most of the damage out. Then I stopped putting heat in my hair completely and THAT’S when I saw a change. My hair became more full and healthy. I trim my hair occasionally from time to time now but only apply heat to my hair once a year on my b-day or thanksgiving. I’ve been heatless for 2 full. years now ( putting heat in my hair only TWICE). I love my curly hair and this is why they call it a journey because it doesn’t happen over night. Still have a long way to go because I’m letting my hair grow long but I’m content with how healthy my hair is at the moment.
