My Natural Hair Transition

Hair Journey Image


I have decided to start documenting my hair transition journey on Fashion and Style Police. I started the journey to natural hair last year and I honestly can’t remember ever seeing my hair natural look this healthy. I decided to stop using relaxers and other chemicals, and grow my natural hair because my processed hair was so weak and unhealthy. I stopped paying attention to it years ago, and I could see the result of my lack of attention, my hair-line was disappearing quickly, I had to do something about it.

This is the first time I am showing a glimpse of my natural hair on the blog. It is usually braided or buried unde a wig or some sort of hair extensions. I have had a love and hate relationship with my hair since I was young. I didn’t like the way it looked or felt. I guess we women of colour were programmed not to love our kinky hair, because all we saw in the magazines and on TV were the straight, silky hair, which is nothing like the African hair.

I am happy to say I have recently fallen in love with my natural hair and all its stubbornness (it never does what I want it do ever), and I am looking forward to styling it in different ways. But I need to grow it first. I became motivated to transition back to natural hair since having my twins. My daughter’s beautiful African kinky hair is hair goals for me. I love everything about her hair, and I enjoy caring for it. Her hair reminds me of how my hair was as a kid . I had beautiful natural hair that I destroyed with chemicals and lack of care. I am determined to grow my hair back to the original length, and I started  this transition journey with a bunch of cool natural hair products, I can’t wait to rave about, so look out for my review posts.

Thanks for reading and have a lovely weekend.

  2. Very brave move but I am sure you will enjoy it very much. It is looking thick and very healthy already
    I am on a similar journey as well not because my hair is unhealthy but because of all I have been reading about the chemicals we use on it.
    Keep rocking your hair girl

  6. Good Luck with your new journey! It takes patience and dedication to transition…everything that I lacked! I grabbed a scissors and chopped my relaxed hair off in 2009. I was left with 2 inches of hair lol. I cried after. But I never looked back after.

  7. Lovely! I started my natural hair journey over 4 years ago, and I was nervous at first too. I eventually fell in love with my hair, and now I’ve started on my loc journey, which I, like you, am documenting via my blog. Good luck on your journey! I know you’ll love it!

  10. It takes patience but I’m sure your hair will flourish. I actually just wrote about this myself because sometimes people don’t talk about some of the real challenges you run into as you go natural. I wish you the best with your journey! Hang in there. Don’t be surprised if you run into the urge to big chop. I did after 3 months of trying to transition lol but I don’t regret it at all!

  12. Hello, what a great post! I totally understand what you mean by a “love/hate” relationship with your hair, I experienced it as well and look back at my transitioning photos and laugh. The journey is so worth it. Keep up the good work! 🙂

  14. Congrats on your journey in embracing self naturally! I also went through a transitioning phase and four years later I am now on a semi free form loc journey. I do believe that we are programmed from an early age on what beauty is by tv, magazines, even loved ones. Once I began rocking my natural, I suddenly felt free. I look forward to following you on your journey.
