It’s amazing how often we (black) girls transform our looks. Today you could have a long, Brazilian wavy weave; tomorrow, box braids and the day after a full grown afro. You may remember from my post, The Come Back: Old School, that I Co Washed my hair for the first time. This was the first stage of my transition, seeing as I’ve decided to go Natural, without braving the Big Chop (BC).
As I go through my journey of African hair discovery, I’ve decided to keep you all updated and let you know how I manage my thick, full, hard, jet black, afro hair. It will be tough, it will be a challenge, it will drive me crazy, but I’m determined to go natural regardless. The ‘fro may last a month, it may last a year, or I may keep it for my lifetime I haven’t quite decided yet. Regardless I’ve decided to embrace my African side, the ‘fro, the gap and what else it may throw my way. Here are pictures 6months into my transition……
Ps: I just realised I haven’t blogged about NYSC camp! Need to rectify that as soon as I can.
Pps: Sinmi from House 38 is making me a conditioner which I’m uber excited about 😀 In the mean time check out her blog here: http://willwearthis.com/

Love the way you wore your hair here….looks like the natural look will be a good one for you! I’m too chicken to do it. I’ve already permed my hair once this year. *Sigh*.
Oh, and the shirt looks lovely too!
ps. Nice cheek bones
*Blush* Thanks Damola, I’m still experimenting. Currently, this is the only way I know how to style natural hair but I’m hoping I’ll get better with time. I can’t believe you’ve already relaxed your hair this year, LOL!!!! I won’t even lie though, I understand. Natural hair is waaay too hard to maintain. x
