My Natural Hair Journey (Story + Pics)

NO ONE EVER BELIEVES ME WHEN I TELL THEM THIS, BUT I KIND OF WENT NATURAL ON ACCIDENT. I WAS TRANSITIONING UNDER A SEW-IN AND DIDN’T EVEN REALIZE IT!

I’VE GONE THROUGH SEVERAL “PHASES” WITH MY HAIR, MOSTLY BECAUSE I GET BORED VERY QUICKLY AND I GET THESE URGES TO CHANGE MY LOOK. I’VE WORN MY HAIR IN LONG LAYERS, SHORT LAYERS, ROLLER WRAPS, BONE STRAIGHT, CURLY, I’VE TRIED JUST ABOUT EVERY STYLE RIHANNA HAS WORN EXCEPT THE SHAVED SIDE STUFF, I HAD A WEAVE ADDICTION, GOT OVER IT AND STARTED IT UP AGAIN.

I WAS WEARING A SEW-IN FOR A FEW MONTHS AND I DIDN’T PAY MUCH ATTENTION TO THE NEW GROWTH I HAD BECAUSE I’D TAKE THE EXTENSIONS OUT AND PUT THEM RIGHT BACK IN WITHOUT SO MUCH AS A 24-HOUR BREAK IN BETWEEN INSTALLATIONS. I KNEW SEVERAL GIRLS THAT HAD GONE NATURAL BUT I WAS SO IGNORANT ABOUT THE PROCESS AT THE TIME, I THOUGHT THE ONLY WAY I COULD DO IT WAS TO CUT OFF ALL MY HAIR SO I NEVER ENTERTAINED THE IDEA UNTIL I LEFT MY HAIR OUT FOR A FEW DAYS.

ALMOST THREE YEARS LATER, I’M STILL NATURAL AND I’VE HAD SOME REALLY BIG HITS AND MISSES WITH MY HAIR.
