I am a transitioning natural. I cant and wont get into the curl patterns, BC (big chop) and BSL (bra strap length) posts and length check updates and all of these technical buzz words a lot of naturals use because at the end of the day it means nothing to me and should mean nothing to you. All of our hairs are different and will take products and styles differently. If anyone is feeling like me, and have read all the natural blogs and looked at some of these tutorials, and endless do and don’ts on going natural… you’ve realized like me that some of this shit just doesn’t work for you! LOL.
I have purple and pink hair. Having color treated hair on top of bleaching it, can cause some struggles with moisture retention, dryness, breakage, the issues are endless. Most natural hair blogs I’ve come across do not come from girls with colored hair and so the processes our hair endure differ dramatically. However, I will say my flexi rod curls are so much better thanks to Naptural85 tutorials! I ultimately want to share my struggles and triumphs with moisturizing and product trials. I want to connect with others who have hair like me and who have dyed their hair every color of the rainbow. And maybe we can help and inspire each other.
Below are pics of me through my almost year long transition:
Every couple of weeks I cut about an inch off until the ends of my hair that are relaxed are gone. I still have about 2 inches left to cut off…
