Rockin Naturals: Ann Marie
AnnMarie B, 23, NYC, full time natural hair enthusiast. I’ve been natural for years now, my last perm was over 10 years ago & it’s been 2 years since I’ve embraced my curls & went heat free.
What or Who inspired you to go natural? Did you bc or transition?
I battled with a skin condition called eczema my whole life, I had it all over even on my scalp. One day I got a perm, a wash & set then wrapped my hair. The next day my scalp had pussed so bad that all my hair clumped together to the point that I couldn’t even unwrap my hair! Since that day I told myself that I needed to leave the chemicals ALONE! I ended up transitioning till my new growth reached my chin then I chopped the straight ends off.
