Two and half years have passed since I started my natural hair journey. As I look back, I am amazed at the progress of my hair growth; never has my hair grown with such consistency and without breakage.
Yesterday while sorting through family pictures, I came across a few pictures of me. In the spirit of the reflecting on the past year and moving forward, I’m sharing a few shots of my hair journey.
Natural at the age of 6
Sporting a fro with dad. Age 14ish. Didn’t know what to do with my natural hair.
I wore lots of braids In the 90’s. Hubby and I were on a cruise in this pic.
6/2008 (Our 20th Wedding Anniversary) -For 10 years, I wore my hair short. A barber cut it and I texturized my hair at home.
May 2010 One month before the texturizer was cut from my ends.
Thanksgiving 2011 – Me and hubby.
My love for my natural hair.
