It has been one month since I decided to restore my hair to the natural way. And this is what I have learned to love about it: 1) I don't have to worry about relaxing it every 4 to 6 weeks. 2) I don't have to worry about it frizzing or puffing up during moist or rainy weather. 3) Short hair makes my neck more scarf friendly. 4) Putting together the perfect outfit makes me feel really pretty. 5) There is no more breakage!!!
So, I finally got the coils in. Cheryl did an awesome job with the hair and the make-up. But they are both out of my comfort zone. I'm not really big on makeup especially using colors and the style just doesn't say "Veronica." I will keep searching for the perfect look for me.
This is the length of my hair when it is flat ironed. I must admit that I love my straight hair much better than the natural afro look.
Thinking "This look might actually work for me" Thanks to my BFF Cheryl Smith!
Cutting my hair was not to make a fashion statement. It was to take control of what was happening to my hair due to an illness. It was very depressing to comb my hair and see how much was shedding every day. But now I'm free of that burden and I accept the challenge that is before me to manage my God given natural hair.
January 25th; 3 months since the big chop and my hair has grown so much! It's obvious that I'm not big on fancy hair styles but I have found the style that fits me by simply pushing my hair towards the back. This works for me because I'm big on wearing my hair in a ponytail.
