Welcome to CurlynStraight's Post #1 Yeah

Hi All, this is where I share my thoughts on my natural hair care. It's been 7 years since I have grown my relaxer out and through the years I have experimented with many different styles.

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:
Yes, Salt-N-Pepa. The Tramp, Ah Push It, Shake Your Thang Rap Duo. You don't know how hard I tried to get that scrunch puff on the side only to find out years later it was a weave!

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.
