HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Happy New Year everyone! Its the 17th already, I know, but I’ve been so busy, I haven’t had the time to put up anything. I hope everyone’s well, and keeping to their new year resolutions, if you made any.

Well, I don’t believe in waiting till January 1 to make any changes, I try to make changes as soon as I deem them necessary. I do have a good feeling about 2012 though, and there are a few memorable things that are going to happen this year. It is the year I graduate from uni and move a little further into the real world, it is the year I turn twenty x_x, and it is also the year of my big chop!

I’ve been considering going natural for about two years, and at first, when I thought about committing myself, actually taking the bold step, I’d think to myself- what if I’m ugly? What if it doesn’t fit me? Well its been a long time, and I have come to the conclusion that I’m going to do this anyway. I am going to nurture my hair in its natural state, rock my stubborn strands as they were created to be. And it will be good, it will be beautiful. Its been about fourteen or fifteen weeks since my last relaxer treatment, and by June or October this year, I should be ready to chop off my relaxed bits, and really start my nappy hair journey.

Or should I say, continue? I’m already on it, and its going to be a fairly significant change. Transitioning is not beans, mayne. I have hard hair. I’ve felt so frustrated between hair-dos, so much that I just want to slather my hair with relaxer and forget about this. I know I’m going to love having a natural mop. But I’ve been taking pictures of my hair over the past few weeks to document the process, and you know, just in case I miss it.

The Order: My hair on 16th November 2011 (more than a month after my last relaxer treatment) – My hair two days ago, after I took out my kinky twists- My hair yesterday.

I put my hair under a weave today- I’m rocking a fringe now. I have a lot of new growth, so its best my hair is covered, until I chop. The contrast between the treated/natural textures, is not pretty!

 

Love and Happiness,

Future Naturalista

  1. We are happy that you have decided to ‘transition’ but why? What triggered this?
    You know it is still possible to have beautiful+healthy relaxed hair right? So please tell us your sole motivation for this life changing deciscion.

    1. Its a bold step, it might be a good look for me and it might not :o(

      Its possible to have beautiful healthy relaxed hair of course (which I’ve had) but I do think healthy kinky hair is more beautiful, and I think its a look that would suit me more, a look I’d be much more comfortable with, one more medium to express my personality.

      Hair is one of the things I google/browse the most. As with Fashion, you can tell a lot about a person’s personality from the way they manage/rock their hair. Its a fairly important topic to me. On this blog, I’m going to be sharing my hair journey, and also stuff about hair in general, as well (kinky and relaxed). #teamGoodHair

  2. I’m so excited for you! Can’t wait to see the wonderful things you’re going to do with your natural hair. And you’re going to have really long & beautiful hair.
    Sadly I’m beginning to have second thoughts about staying natural:( I don’t have the patience needed to manage natural hair so I’m thinking of switching back after a year. On the bright side, I’m chopping off my relaxed ends in March, it’ll be 10 months since my last relaxer treatment. Pardon the length of my comment.

    1. You visited my blog yayyy 🙂
      Thank you for your comment!
      Its all fun (and work 😐 ) and experimentation.
      If the hair becomes too much stress for you, you could always relax and then try again later. 🙂
