My Hair Journey
My natural hair journey started on December 30th, 2012. I was getting tired of my hair because it was no longer improving in length. It was dry and brittle; to top it all, I had dandruff, which was so annoying because I scratched my hair a lot. My last relaxer was in August 2012. So I made up my mind to cut my hair low but was still not sure if I should as at then. The dandruff which I had been trying to treat got worse by November and I was so ashamed of my hair and I made the bold step at last (Making sure I got wigs for covering). I told my mum about it and she trimmed my hair so low with a scissors (my first big chop) and I felt like a new person plus I was now curious to see what my own natural hair would look like.
Not satisfied with this low cut; I decided to cut every strand of hair on my head away. So in December 2012, on a beautiful Sunday, in front of my bedroom mirror, I had my second big chop. I was BALD but felt relieved as well.
I took pictures after that big chop and started wearing wigs. Everyone wanted me to stop the wig-wearing as they felt I looked good with the low cut. But I had no intention in doing that until my hair was of a very impressive length.

-Organic Root Stimulator Uplifting shampoo
-Meditrit Triple action hair cream
My hair treatment so far……
-Co-Washing once a week
-Shampooing 1-2 times a week
My hair was one year last December and I’m super excited to have reached this point. And as much as I want the long luscious hair, I also want to enjoy my hair as it is.
Though my hair is still short, I intend growing it to my dream hair length. Natural hair is just the best for me and I love it.
