Natural Hair | One Year Hair Journey

We don’t go natural, we return. Natural is where I began – Unknown.

Hello! Hello!

I finally hit my one year hair anniversary, and to be honest with you, I didn’t expect it to come this fast. It’s just the other day I was crying in the mirror when I chopped off all my hair but I’m glad I did.

I would like to say it was a fun year, but I would just be lying to you and myself. I learnt the hard way that my hair is the most stubborn thing I’ve come across. There were days I’d just walk into the beauty store and stare at the box of relaxers but then I’d talk myself out of it, cause I was reminded of the days it behaves.

I have also learnt what my hair loves and what it hates and I shall share all that in later posts, but one thing that my hair would die without is water. Water is just a life saver. I can’t live without it. πŸ™‚

Okay, enough of my babbling. I’ve compiled photos of the whole year and for the months that are missing, I was most probably in box braids or Senegalese twists or too busy to take pictures. Haha

Month 12 – First blow out.

As you can see, I don’t do much to it. I just let it run itself and leaving your hair alone with little to no manipulation is the best thing you can do.
