I chopped off the last bits of relaxed hair a couple of hours ago yay!!! It feels amazing to be totally natural!! :happy7: :love7: :happy3: :love4:

I havent had completely natural hair for the last 15 years or so, its a major change for me! My hair is really short with shrinkage, but its sooo curly and cute, I really love it!!

I could never have done this without the help and support of nc.com, thank youuuuuuuuuu!!

I'll sort out a photo album of my transition and natural hair tomorrow!!!

Happy Lillu xxxxxx

    You actually have no idea how much it means to me that someone would say that... my entire life all people have ever told me is that my natural hair is/would be disgusting, and how 'grateful' I should be that relaxers worked on my hair! I was SO scared to post pics because of that.

    So THANK-YOU!!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    OMFG, that is awful, your own mother?!! That must be so hard for you. My (English) mom used to do my relaxers you know, as if it was her fault I didnt get her hair as she chose to have a kid with a Caribbean dude, so she had to make up for it somehow by doing my relaxers hahahah! Silly woman. (But it did save me a fortune ;-)) You just stay strong and keep going, don't listen to them, what do they know anyway, its your hair and no one else's. I can see from your pics that your hair is already beautiful, and will be amazing when you BC!!

    It has been hard, thats why sometimes, even after 14 months, it still shocks me that I have stopped relaxing! And now I actually have totally natural hair, I wake up and forget for a moment then remember and its like "omg! I did it"!!!

    The ironic thing is I used to know someone with hair like mine is now and I was always SO jealous of her curly hair and wished mine was like that... well ummm it actually IS!!! Hahahah funny how things work out isn't it!! I am SO glad i found nc.com and got the info and strength to go natural!! Thank you for your lovely comment!!

    Thanks everyone!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    p.s. I'm glad no one has mentioned how drunk i am in the first few pics hahaha!

    Lillu, congrats your hair is beautiful. My hair looks like that sometimes when I manage to trick it into behaving. Curly hair is absolutely beautiful, Ayeyoneek (I read your post), and don't let anyone family or otherwise tell you different. Why do you think they invented the curling iron? People want what we were blessed with! Keep your head up and do what makes you feel good about you.
