My first week natural.

What I love:
  • I'm free of the relaxed ends! They were so hard to deal with. I cant imagine how those women do it for years. Whew!
  • How soft my hair is.
  • My curls make me really happy. :)
  • It was supposed to rain yesterday. My friends and I had plans to go to the park. All of them were worried about the rain but me! It never rained though.
  • The positive reactions and feed back from my friends and even a few people I don't know.
What I hate:
  • The shrinkage!
  • I wake up in the morning looking sooo busted! I cant throw my hair in a bun when I'm too lazy to do anything else.
  • My curls aren't as defined as I would like.
  • All I can do is the puff thing with the headband.
What I have learned/still learning:
  • I need to learn how to define my curls.
  • I need to learn how I can do twist outs on my length.
  • I've learned that this is something new to me and I have to get used to it. 
  • I've learned to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! By the end of the day, my hair is very dry.
  • I can't get rid of some frizz in the middle. 
  • I do detangle like I should. In the shower with conditioner. 
  • I still need a regime to follow. Right now I'm kind of experimenting.

Here are a few pics (Im the shorty in the middle):
The back. :)
These were all taken last night at the park...where it was supposed to rain.
Yesterday was also my best hair day so far. ;)

  2. OMG! I love it. You make me want to take my braids down right now and just chop mines off! You look so pretty!

  3. what you sayin is so true. I felt the same and but I have come a looooong way in learning how to deal with my hair then from a year and a half ago.

    and ive learnt how to define my curls. ima put my regime up soon and pictures. but yes moisture is definitely important.!! and it seems like u learnin to do the right things like detangle in the shower. i didnt start doin that till much later.

    its good ure wised up.. good luck with finding the right regime for u and no more runnin away from rain!
