Pics coming soon!
I am currently working on putting together a video of my hair journey! I've been needing to do this for a while. Boy, my hair has come a long way yall! I am too excited at the growth I've seen. I will also discuss my current hair regimine and products that I'm using. I am equally as excited at meeting new people on my site, and hearing your thoughts, tips, and products used to keep/achieve your healthy natural hair ! When did you stop relaxing your hair? Are you currently still getting relaxers and thinking about going natural???

Hi, my name is Billynda and I have natural hair :-) Ok, so this isn't natural hair anonymous, but here's my story. I stopped perming my hair in November of 2004 because my scalp is very sensitive and I was tired of painful touch-ups. I transitioned by getting my hair pressed or flat ironed and getting about an inch or two cut per month until all of my permed hair was gone. I currently get my hair flat ironed about 4 times/year. If you're living in Atlanta, check out Too Groovy hair salon where they only do natural hair. This is where I go when I want my hair cut/trimmed/straightened. If you're in Little Rock, check out my cousin Cathy who presses hair out of her home and will hook you up. The rest of the time I wear it in a curly ponytail or two-strand twists -- so easy. My absolute favorite haircare product is Kinky Curly Knot Today Conditioner which I use as a leave-in and it is soooo good at detangling and making my hair more manageable for whatever I plan to do with it. So that's it about me, can't wait to hear about everyone else's fye curls :-)ReplyDelete
Billynda! You are the very first to post a comment on my blog and therefore you win a free prize: my lifelong gratitude and appreciation!;-)I personally love the KCKT also. It was the one of the first things I went to buy after going natural. (Even though I only had an inch of hair) Lol! I may be hitting up your cousin Cathy for a haircut pretty soon since she is located near me. Thanks so much for your story!ReplyDelete
fyecurls! what an awesome and beautiful journey! my last relaxer was about 3 months ago...and now i'm strongly considering going natural. i love working out and it's very diffcult to maintain cute hairstyles through sweaty workouts. my only decent hair days are on the weekends!! i'm looking forward to following your blogs and getting inspiration and tips on how to transition to natural hair.ReplyDelete
I am so excited that you are considering going natural, WOW Fitness! I totally agree that naturally textured hair is way less of a hassle than relaxed when it comes to working out and sweating! Even though I only transitioned for 2 mos. before I "big chopped," I will offer some tips that I've learned from some YouTube naturals and family members that I know who did transition for a lengthy amount of time. Good luck with your journey if you decide to do it! I hope you do! Thanks for commenting!ReplyDelete
Hi everyone. I have not had a relaxer since September 2009. I am very excited about transitioning to natural hair. I see my new growth is about two inches now and I love it. Currently, I wear braid outs and bantu knots. I learned how to do rope "flat" twists and also learned how to do three strand twists, so I am super excited about having ALL natural hair. Like Billynda, I am cutting an inch for an inch! Thank you FYEcurls for starting this blog so I can connect with all of you nappy heads!! LOL...(that's not offensive is it?) I don't really know the natural lingo yet... :IReplyDelete
LOL! Camilia you are hilarious! You are really becoming a pro at this transitioning thing. I may have you do a video tutorial on those flat twists, especially the 3 strand twists! ;-)Because I have yet to master those! Thanks so much for your comment, girl!ReplyDelete
Hi my name is Christie C-H-R-I-S-T-I-E! I've been natural for 7 years now. Best decision ever since I never really liked doing hair anyway. I used to perm my own hair and the last perm I gave myself I put so much vaseline on my scalp & edges I probably let the perm sit about 10 minutes before washing it out. A few weeks later I notice my edges look a mess. I did some searching and found the holy grail of all thing natural hair www.nappturality.com and was motivated by the photos I saw there to go natural. I did straw sets for about 3 months, a set of twist and finally sat in this womans chair and let her cut my hair off. And I loved it!ReplyDelete
It grew out and I cut it all off about 3 years ago, it grew back out and then unintentionally started locs a year and 5 months ago. I had no particular reason for starting locs, as I went in for another style & loved the convience of not fooling with hair in the morning so I let the comb coils loc. It's been a great lesson in trusting the process of not just locing hair but trusting the process of life.
That is an awesome hair story C-H-R-I-S-T-I-E! Lol! You have just become our resident "loc" specialist! I will be referring all future loc questions to you. :-) I absolutely love nappturality.com also! Thanks so much for sharing your story and the website. Everyone should check it out!ReplyDelete
