What or Who inspired you to go natural? Did you bc or transition?
 I’ve been natural my whole life honestly. I never chemically treated my hair unless it was dying it. But about 7 years ago I never straighten my hair and I wore it curly regularly.
I honestly had no inspiration to go natural. I just realized at such a young age I was spending to much money and doing to much to look “beautiful” when I looked like that naturally. I also was under the impression that I was going away to college and I didn’t know if the school I choose to go to had salons that knew how to do mixed people’s hair so all together I stopped going to the salon and started the wash n go phase that I’m still in. I transitioned into being curly.
What are your current hair goals?
My current hair goals are to have healthy curly hair as I transition from all the colors I desire to have. Once I’m done I want to let it grow as long as possible.

 Any advice to the natural newbies?

I think the biggest and hardest part about being natural is learning to appreciate what you have naturally and loving it. Also you should figure out all the products that work best in your hair and keep them stocked up. Take care of your hair and get your trims regularly.

” is that a weave, it just looks too perfect”
