I decided to go natural last summer and did my big chop in December. Thankfully, I have the most resilient hair known to man as I’ve never experienced *real* damage or breakage (apart from once when a colourist at an afro- european salon told me that afro hair didn’t need oils and grease, HA!) but I figured that those horrid chemicals can’t be good so I opted for that Naturalista liiiiffeestyyyyllee *young thung voice*.
I’ll do a proper post, documenting my natural hair journey another time but, for now, I’m enjoying rediscovering my natural hair texture, trying out new products (which i’ll post more about in the future) and having short hair in general. I can’t wait for it to be bloody massive.
In the meantime, here are some pretty colourpop ‘fro’s that I found when looking for inspiration.
