Why I’m Choosing to Grow My Natural Curls Out

Curly Envy

for years i contemplated about saying goodbye to perms and growing my natural hair out,yet i had no freakin idea where to start.   When i was younger i never anticipated looking forward to Sunday evenings because it consisted of hours and hours of hair maintenance(shampooing,conditioning,straightening, curling).  i have memories of hiding from my mom each Sunday hoping she would eventually forget about our weekly routine but she never did.  i remember  telling my mom “oh, i want my hair like yours”.  she always seem to manage her hair with such ease and i envied that.

just say no to creamy crack

so this year i discovered another way to refine myself: “rocking my curls”  i am so tired of perms, the constant damage from the use of heating tools and spending countless hours  finding ways to  manipulate my hair so that it could remain straight.  i have yet to share this decision with  family and friends b/c i don’t care to listen to  their opinions or  wanna-be advice. i am happy to say  i have joined the “natural curly revolution” to learn ways to manage and embrace my curls. thanks to the many natural hair contributors out there; you guys rock!

I will keep you updated on my “grow out” progress. fingers-crossed

  1. Oh leave it curly it’s so beautiful, but of course I would say that my hair is as straight as a poker and i’ve always wanted curls…honestly we always want what we haven’t got!!!

    • Very True! Because i have always permed my hair to achieve the straight look i am learning how to manage it being some curly/some straight. I am anticipating when it is all naturally curly. One Day! to achieve curly hair you can always use rollers and rods. so many possibilities.
