As you guys know from my previous post, “I love my hair, IDC IDC,” I have stopped relaxing my hair. I am finally beginning to learn how to treat and style my transitioning hair. (YouTube has been a huge help!) Yesterday, I decided to take a shot at Bantu Knots because my hair seemed untamable and here are my results this am. I must say, I’m happy and am excited to learn new ways to treat and style my natural hair.
Ever since I was about 6, I have had my hair relaxed. I can’t blame my mom because I don’t like to deal with my hair when it’s wet either. It’s just too much.
Until recently, I have relaxed my hair every 3-4 months. I was due for a relaxer about 6 months ago and my hair stylist refused to do it. She told me that my hair did not need to be relaxed and I shouldn’t damage my hair with such chemicals. I figured, she’s a licensed hair stylist, she might be right. So I took her advice and decided to transition to my natural hair texture. I must admit, it’s going to take some getting used to. There’s no more smooth edges and that’s been my biggest insecurity. But who needs smooth edges?!? My hair is a lot thicker and I’m excited to see how it turns out. Point is, this is MY hair and I love it. I don’t care if nobody else likes it, it’s mine :p
