Length or Health??

What are **YOUR** natural hair goals? Length?? Health?? Style?? There has been a recent trend of 'seasoned naturals' getting their hair cut in a trendy style and it makes many others assume they are 'newly natural'. Is length retention the MAIN reason YOU chose natural hair?? Let's talk about it .....

    I started my journey 5 years ago out of curiosity and tired of relaxing my hair. Also felt as African American woman wanted to display my natural beauty not what I was told was beautiful. My hair is a work in progress but at 50 am loving the curls and thickness am experiencing on this journey and I wear my crown proudly.

    I`ve been on a natural journey for the majority of my adult life and now at 63 with a head full of gorgeous artfully styles locks. I`m passing my love of our natural beauty on to my grand daughter. I never miss an opportunity to tell her how beautiful she is and always will be. Keep on being happy to be nappy…

    I’ started my natural hair journey back in 2005, so 13 years strong. I stopped relaxing my hair due to having eczema in my head and being 24 and Mot wanting to loose my hair; having not embraced being bald at that time, my only option wasn’t to eliminate harsh chemicals and change my diet. I have since cut my hair off twice, had dreads, and now rock a half shaven head with a long hair to the side. Alll that to say healthy stylish hair is what I go for.

    I have been natural for 5yrs and even though i’ve had major setbacks inform of hairloss for the last 2-3yrs, i am now more into healthy hair over length. I believe that if your hair is healthy, it will grow.

    Been natural for about 5 years but in the last year or so finally stopped pressing it all together and now just wearing my natural curl and loving it. I am still learning something new frequently as the top grows out as I like the back and sides tapered for an edger look. Not sure of my goal other than healthy natural hair that I don’t need to be concerned about it drawing up when I work out.
