    Hi Ladies,

    I must say, I've been on this site for a few months now and had no clue there were so many "chocolate brides." I'm glad I have this new outlet to get info and get your ideas/feedback.

    I have been going through hair woes for the past year and I have to say that once again I'm at a crossroads. I have no clue what to do with my hair on a daily basis nevertheless for my wedding A year ago I got my hair died black and had a horrible allergic reaction. So I tried to stop getting chemicals all together but only lasted for about 6 months. By the end of that time I think I was ready to shave my head (too bad I don't have the face for that). I sweat from my scalp and that was the one of the main reasons that natural didn't work for me. Once I'd leave the gym, it just looked like I needed wash/blow out everyday! Then once I did get relaxed again, my hair was so thin I hated it. So, since then I've had a sew-in. Now that I'm ready to get rid of that I have no clue what to do next. Everybody says that I have "nice" enough hair to go natural, but just in that 6 months I broke so many combs that I got sick of it all.

    Anyway, sorry to vent but I'm just really confused. FI's sister is one of my BMs and she does hair so I think getting my hair done for the wedding won't be a problem. It's what am I supposed to do now that I'm struggling with!!

      Meredith...I don't know what you are talking about not having the face for short hair!! If anything you just need to find the style that best fits you. I'm not to sure about natural hair...but I heard that texturizers are not as harsh as relaxers and perms.

        Meredith,

        I feel your pain… hopefully this thread will help us out. I also have no clue what do with my natural hair and my fiancĀ© has stated that he would like me to wear my “real” hair for the wedding (ugh) I don’t have a perm so I fear that I will end up with a big afro in Jamaica. I’m sure we will figure out something before are big day. Do you have any idea at all of if you want your hair all up, down, half up and half down…. I’m trying to make that decision and then go from there…..

          Thats exactly what I wanted to do. I was going to get the clip-ins to make the bun a little fuller....these were my inspiration pics....I probably have like 20! But these two are my favs:

            Meridith, I too know what you mean about your hair woes. My hair won't even keep the slightest curl, so I usually wear it straight. Humidity is awful on my hair which is why I was thinking about getting a sew in for my wedding. Were you thinking about going natural before your wedding or after?

            Janine, I love both hair pics, especially the first one.

                Janine I love the hairstyle in the first picture. That would look really good with a birdcage veil.

                  Thanks Sorord1! I love it. I'm probably gonna wear a flower but a birdcage would look great with it as well.

                    A flower will look really hot with that hairstyle! I think I might just have to use that hairstyle as well! LOL! I will definitely be wearing a sewin in Jamaica so that hairstyle will definitely work.

                      Ladies, my wedding is in less than three weeks in Jamaica and I don't know exactly what to do with my hair. I have worn my hair short for years but decided to grow my hair unfortunately when I workout my hair doesn't grow and now it's just a about 2.5 - 3 inches (natural). I don't know what to do, I have only wore a weave once and I had it done in Rome, Italy. I wouldn't know where to go get a good weave sewn in here in MD.

                      Boy, do I miss my maintanance free short hair. I am afraid even if I perm my hair, the humidity will end up making my hair look like Don King. I have been wearing braids for the past few months. Any suggestions?
