My Relaxed Journey, Why I Big Chopped

img_4024

Welcome back !

So, if you read my last post you would know that I had my first relaxer when I was 11. My hair was just too long and too thick to manage. I know this is almost every black girls excuse but its true! I was tender headed and hated getting my hair done. Box braids took around 4-6 hours, hot combs left me with blisters on my scalp and ears, I got an aching back, sore legs and crooked neck from sitting on the floor getting braids done, it was just too much!

Hello All,

I know some of you may be shocked by the change content I have been feeling a type of way about my natural hair and thought about sharing my roller coaster journey. Not long ago I was feeling very insecure about my hair and was ashamed to wear it out. I even booked an appointment to have my hair relaxed and was only hours away from attending.
