Ready to Take the Leap!

Post by coachkareng on 2nd February 2011, 11:31 pm

Hi Everyone!

Right now I sit with my relaxed hair growing out and I cannot wait until I BC which I am planning in doing by the end of the month. I am so nervous and so excited!

This past August my hair was relaxed and the "healthiest", thickest, and longest it had ever been. It was then that I had permanent color done and it was the beginning of the end. My hair became completely brittle and started rapidly breaking off and falling out in full strands. Needless to say I have discovered that my hair cannot take permanent color of any kind. Something I never knew as I hadn't applied color beyond highlighting for over 20 years. And totally forgot when I did it 20 years ago my hair fell out then too.

Now it is damaged beyond repair so I said, "Why not embrace this message and go natural?" My little girl who will be 5 next week is natural and my stepdaughter who is 22 just BC'd back in August and it looks fabulous! We will have a house full of natural beauties.

So, this is a blessing in disguise. I think this is the beginning of a wonderful journey. I have been reading all of your posts. I am very encouraged and look forward to sharing this walk with you.

Thanks for reading!

Karen

Congrats! Our stories are similar...I also decided to transition after coloring/bleaching destroyed my healthy (longest as it's ever been) relaxed hair. I was devastated because my once thick hair was getting so thin. Obviously, everything happens for a reason. I don't regret my decision to go natural at all. Enjoy your journey!!!
