I got my first relaxer at age 12. After convincing my mother I finally got it done. I wanted "style versatility". Ha little did we know. Many years later I have to say that being natural has given me more versatility than I could have ever imagined.
My earliest hair and fashion inspiration were these ladies here:
Well they are still my girls. Before I go any further I want to say that all hair is beautiful as long as it is well taken care of. I loved my relaxed hair and I love my natural hair. I just hated the touch ups (ouch) and my hair seemed to be brittle. Being frugal of course I did many touch ups myself. I started stretching the touch ups to the point where I would do them like 5-6 times a year. My pregnancy is really what got me motivated to quit relaxing. I fell off the wagon once after a good year but once I got back on I never looked back.
