My One Year NappyVersary!

Two strand Twist-Almost 1 month Natural

Big Chop March 26, 2010

Wow!  Time really really flies!

This complete year has been such a learning experience for me.

I learned that my curl pattern was non existent, but my kinks were absolutely beautiful.

I learned that no amount of gel would make my hair curl, but it would sure make it hard!

I learned that my kinky dry hair could feel soft and supple if treated properly.

I learned that if I braided or twisted my hair I could achieve awesome curl definition.

Two Strand Twist-Almost 1 year Natural

I learned that conditioning my hair would assist in keeping my hair moisturized.

I learned that my hair loves coconut oil more then most of the others.

I learned that shea butter is my best friend.

I learned that doing my hair is a stress reliever for me.

I learned that my natural hair is absolutely gorgeous on me!

My Growth is absolutely amazing!

Week 1
Month 9

The best part of going natural are the relationships I’ve made with so many women. I’ve learned a great deal from all of you and it’s awesome to be an Inspiration to all you newly naturalistas. I still feel weird when I hear someone say “You’re my Inspiration!” but I can dig it, LOL

If I could do it all over again, I would have gone Natural sooner.  I love my Hair!
