Support For Us
I started my natural journey in 2008. I had gotten relaxers all my life and in 2007 I started seeing severe breakage. I kept my hair moisturized, ends trimmed, deep conditioned every two week, only colored maybe once every other year. I was doing everything that I thought was right but there was an area in the back of my head that refused to grow. I had to keep my hair cut in a short pixie style to try and blend it in.
Finally I got to a point where I was tired of spending so much money on hair that was breaking off and not growing so I did some researching, found nappturality.com and began transitioning June 2008 (my last relaxer had been in April of 2008). Fast forward to May 2009 and I did my BC, well more like a snip since I only had about 1/2" of relaxed ends left.
I celebrated my one year anniversary of natural hair in May 2010 and if it wasn't for the ladies and gents of nappturality.com I don't think I would have made it. They've been supportive from afar. Well today I coordinated and hosted a lunch meet and greet for the local naptural from the Columbia, SC area and we had so much fun. We product swaps and gave out product samples.
It's so great to have support!
