Nov 24, 2008
This is my first experience with blogging. I hope that as I chronicle my journey it will encourage someone else to step out on faith and move toward a life a full freedom with natural hair.

I started this journey in 2006, I was wearing a weave at the time and I could not find my stylist. Because of my frustration I sat down with my Mother and we cut the weave out. Needless to say we cut my hair down to the scalp in some areas. This experience made me angry. Angry that I was co-dependent upon someone else to make my hair look good. Angry that I was caught in a vicious cycle of perm, weave, press. Angry because the edges of my head looked like someone had used a bad razor to shave my head.

So I took my anger and put it to constructive use. I stopped the cycle of dependence and I began taking care of my hair. For 2 years I let my natural beauty shine through and on Nov 18, 2008 I began to loc.

I am including some pictures of stages that lead me to where I am in life now.

1998, no extensions, no weave, just blue black hair
