Hello says introduce yourself so here I am:hello1:

31 F NYC
3c/4a high porosity

Natural for about 6 years, just was over the constant breaking off. I finally had to get what was essentially a bowl cut to have my hair be split free when I gave up on perms. I had no idea where I initially got the idea from but I hate salons anyway (too antsy to stay in one place that long), so I did it. I wore box braids and every type of weave imaginable for about 2 years. Then because I have serious complex about short hair and the vast difference between permed and 4a hair I didn't know how to manage I made a mistake...... I put a texturizer. :banghead: I know! I know! I should have been brave and chopped off the permed hair. Hindsight is 20/20 though I did manage to stay earlobe length though for 3 years so :tongue3: lol. Now I'm shoulder length and the only chemical in my hair is dye.

So that's my story I look forward to talking to you all. Curl Power!!
