    Thanks!! I'll never relax again. The last one was in August 07. I'm loving my natural hair and being a 'natural hair advocate' lol. (i'm not one of those holier than thou naturals who feel that every black woman should go/be natural though) I just LOVE natural hair

    Wow 5 years au naturale go you!!! Did you transition or do a big chop?

    I'll definitely urge against my daughter getting one, but I feel like I'll be her primary role model and I'd hope she'd want to follow my lead in that respect. If she wanted one, I'd let her make that decision in her teens. It's likely she'll have a looser curl pattern than mine since FI's hair is bone straight, so hopefully relaxing wont even be on her radar.

          Girl are you crazy...don't you see everyone in awe that you pulled it off. You are beyond awesome when it comes to hair.

            Danyelle,
            Nope I didnt chop my hair off at once. My stylist refused to relax my hair anymore claiming it was paper thin when she finished. So every two weeks she would just straighten my hair with the old school hot comb. I love your natural hair because it is so thick and full. My hair is really thin so I just normally wear it straight. During the summer I just get a sew in and just wash and go.

            You do a good job with styling your hair I think you should be able to pull that hair style off.

              Janine you're such a ray of sunshine. Thanks for the encouragement! I'll try this and some other styles in the future. I want to be self reliant on the big day.

              What about twist outs or braid outs, even bantu knot outs? they can fake fullness because they give volume and curl to the hair, maybe that can be a style option for when you don't have your sew-ins in.

              I'm glad your stylist refused to give those to you. Some folks will do anything to the hair and not try to maintain the health.

                Hey, hey, hey now! I am sooooooo excited to have fallen across this forum! I too am a chocolate bride and I JUST began growing my hair out in December! I am struggling because I have had relaxers ever since I was in High school. I got tired of the texture of my hair, how brittle it was, and just how "un" natural I felt if that makes any sense. I have a little girl and I started thinking about the images I was imprinting in her brain and it made me uncomfortable enough to give up the creamy crack. lol

                I've been using Carol's Daughter, as I do on my daughter's hair.....but some days the transition is just HARD! Anywho, I am getting married in Riviera Maya in May of next year and I have been fretting about my hair! Yesterday, it even crossed my mind to wonder if the electrical outlets in Mexico would work with my flat iron! LOL It's that serious!!!

                Anyway, I'm happy to be here and looking forward to sharing hair highs and lows with you ladies!!!!
