When I first attempted to even think about going Natural, I was already in a place called "FED UP" with my hair. I was tired of the perms, tired of the blow dryer, tired of fighting to keep straight hair...straight & wet sets...set. I think for about a year, after washing my hair, I loved how it felt and would say to myself 'I would love to just wash my hair & wear it like this or twists or something; and the more I kept entertaining the thought of what it would be like to have my own kinky-coily curls, the more I started having resentment towards the process & upkeep of my current permed state. I thought about it, more & more...contemplated more & more...even tried some pretend styles on my permed hair (styles without blow drying of course) and decided it would at least be worth a try....SO how did I get there...Here's how...
1st Reason: Your sick & tired of being sick & tired. Your being totally turned off from anything dealing with heat (blow dryers, curling irons, wand sticks, you name it). You are Now starting to see the detriment in using perms instead of the benefit (breakage, thinning hair, chemical damage, just overall UNHEALTHY!)
2nd Reason: You're really enjoying the Freedom of letting your hair "Do" what it "DO". No matter the weather, humidity level, rain, dew points, whatever, your curls are Free and so are YOU. No more running from rain droplets or stressing over your hair reverting or falling because of the humidity.
3rd Reason: You are Finally Delivered from People and the opinions and ignorance of others, they can be your parents, friends, peers, co-workers, spouse, children, etc. Everyone may not be ready to embrace the new you with your natural kinky hair (especially if you big-chop). So be prepared for possible comments, side looks and subtle sarcasm, ...not from other races and cultures but from your own brothers and sisters. I can't began to tell you the negative stares and remarks I've gotten from my people so if you are ready to Explore your unique Curls and Coils regardless of the Opinions and Permission of others...then yeah Sister-Girl...Your Ready....
