"“I was born with a head full of thick, kinky hair, to a mother who had no idea what to do with all of it. Thus, my hair was relaxed at a young age for manageability. I remember spending entire days at the beauty shop getting lathered up with that creamy crack and sitting with a sting until it became a burn. I was only allowed to wear my hair down on special occasions. I either had a head full of plats with barrettes or I was braided down with beads.
In 2010, I began going longer between relaxers before I stopped getting them all together. This was right before natural hair became a movement, so resources were limited. I wore my hair in braid outs, blending my textures, for a year and a half before chopping off my relaxed ends. It wasn’t until 2 years ago that I found a stylists that taught me how to find an take care of my curls. This brings me to today, and I can say I LOVE my hair!”"
