My Hair Journey

This is my natural hair journey thus far…

Welcome to Natural Hair My name is Tamara Floyd. I have been natural since 2006. Like many of you I was afraid to go natural but once I did the big chop I never looked back. I’m not a person to commit to any one hairstyle.  You will see various looks and the versatility of natural hair. For further reading about my natural hair you can read about My Regimen and

Aug. 2006 This is me before the BiG ChOp. I tried to transition. Matter of fact I went perm less for about 5 months. Here I got a really good Chi. (I know I look high in this picture. I’m not.)

Nov. 2006 This is a month after the BiG ChOp. I really didn’t know what to do with my hair so I would just straw set it every week.

Mar. 2007 Ok. I wanted something different so I got the front braided and the back blown out.

Jun. 2007 A few months before this picture I went to have the rest of my relaxed hair cut off and the lady completely bald me. This is after my hair grew back a little.

Aug. 2007 I decided to let the color grow out. I did flat twist or plaits to the scalp and took it down when it was dry to achieve this look.

Sept. 2007  To get a spiral/waving look I two strand twisted the hair into medium size plaits. After it was dry I took it down and pined up the sides.
