Why you wanna do that?

Written by  Curly NOLA

Blog Bio: Hello Hair Lovers! I'm currently in the process of transitioning from the creamy crack world into the natural world. And lemme tell you, it definitely ain't been easy! Follow my journey as I learn about being natural (after 25 years of having relaxers) and embrace it in all its beauty.

The creamy crack has been SCREAMING my name, especially since I put it in stone that I was going natural. Plus I think the weather wants to sabotage me too. Here it is, the middle of October and it’s probably rained everyday…the new growth is swelling, and swelling, and swelling…I’m scared.

So I’ve been researching like a mad woman - conditioners, shea butters, no poos, leave ins, curly, kinky, transitioning, big chop, shingling, twist-outs - all words part of my new found vocabulary. Now, I’ve become extremely enthusiastic about the process and my husband has given me all his support. But, when I told some of my family members about my decision, I was instantly met with stares and perplexed faces. “WHHHYYYY?!?!?! Your hair is so beautiful!!! Look how long it is!!!” is what I’ve been hearing. Straight hair = beauty. Natural hair, hmmm what does natural hair equal?

Nonetheless, I’m doing it. I recently ordered the Value Pack from Miss Jessie’s. Since I’m a newbie to transitioning, this was good for me because it gives a little sample of everything so I can try them out and see what works for me. It’s sad to say, but I don’t really know what my hair type really is because I haven’t ever really seen it. So I got a little bit of trial and error to do.
