Rockin Naturals: Bruncelynn

What or who inspired you to go natural? Did you big chopped or transition?
My sister was actually my motivation to go natural. She actually big chopped 1 month before me, even though we were supposed to do it together; but I chickened out. I was so afraid to let go of my length that I was willing to let it stump my growth. After a month of a lot of thinking and sad lifeless buns I decided to take the big step. I transitioned for 7 months and then big chopped.

Sum up your natural hair journey in three words.
Well worth it!
Any advice to the natural newbies?
I always say big chop if your hair is damaged. At the end of the day, it is just hair and it shouldn’t define our beauty. I actually wish I had big chopped sooner. The transition from long hair to short is difficult at first but don’t give up and experiment with different styles to see what works best for you.
What is your favorite compliment you have ever been given on your hair?
“You’re curls are so defined. Your hair sure is growing!”
If you could tell your younger self NOW something about your natural hair THEN what would that be?
Don’t put that creamy crack in your hair! It really isn’t worth it! Trust me, you’ll regret it later
