February 2006 I decided I was no longer perming my hair out of laziness. Now I spend more time in my head then I’ve even in my life. Being natural extends beyond my hair to my skin and the food that I eat. Its apart of my lifestyle. What originally was simply about my hair transcended into a journey so enlightening I just get so excited about it!
Though, initially I was discouraged by my friends, family and the Military, and it was a hard and long first few years, I stuck it out and can now see the light. I’d like to share with you things I’ve learned and trust, it won’t be all successes; but also a series of epic fails.
I hope to inspire at least one person who thinks they want to give up, to hang in there. I hope you all can learn from my mistakes and get some use out of my tips and lets have fun with your hair.
