This is my natural hair journey thus far…
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.
Apr. 2007 I finger coiled my hair with Twist and Lock Gel. Me and the hubby.
Apr. 2007 This was Easter that’s why all the drama! Finger coils with Twist and Lock.
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.
Dec. 2007 Wow! i Just Realized how fast my hair grew. This is a longer version of flat twist taken down.
Jan. 2008 Flat twist again. I don’t know why this came out different. I think I used a different product. Kinky curly instead of Twist and Lock.
Apr. 2008 This is my first press since going natural. Look at those layers their natural too.
April 2008 This is the next day after wrapping it the night before.
May 2008 This is my afro puff.
May 2008 Finger coils again but this time with length. I love this style it stays cute for up to two weeks.
Aug. 2008 I finally mastered the wash n go! It only took 2 years.
Nov 2008 This is my birthday shot. I did two strand twist and rolled on rods and took down when dry. It turned out so cute. Ok so I guess the formal name for it is the ‘Twist n Curl’
Nov. 2008 This is my second press.
Nov. 2008 This is my wash n go after wearing it straight for a week.
