The Other Side of being natural… #Somebody’s Uncle #WindDownWednesdays #CentinnialOlympicPark
While sitting in Dunking Donuts completing my Managerial Accounting homework today, I met Yonatan who has beautiful curls. He is a student here in Atlanta and I had to persuade him to let me show him on the website. Below are some more pictures of him that he liked better than the one i took. Ladies, for your viewing pleasure!

Me right after the Dominicans hook up my hair…
With my natural before I cut it 3 weeks later…
After the big cut… And yes I did do it myself because I knew I would get a fight to get it cut…
And the hair afterwards…
Styles since then…
And last… the Anita Baker… What should be my next cut?
This journey of natural hair has been on of a lifetime… literally. When I was younger, I used to get perms to try to manage my curly kinky hair. I would let it grow to a certain length and then cut it shorter but it wasn’t until I was an adult that I understood why I did that. As an experiment, I allowed my hair to grow the longest it’s every grown in my life. The longer it grew, the harder it was to manage because my curls turned into knots on my head.
I then put a relaxer in my hair like a texturizer. How I did it was not to separate the hair, I just glob in the relaxer everywhere and let it sit for 3 to 5 minutes. I didn’t comb my natural hair until afterwards. It was then I realized that for women with long natural hair, relaxers work as well. I had lost my body and volume in that process but I was able to comb through my hair.
In one decision, I went from hair down my back to a short Afro. This is the continuation of my journey of natural beauty. Let’s see where it takes us!
