I decided to go au naturale.

I decided to start to appreciate my natural hair and I decided to stop using hair relaxers. It’s never easy but this is a good decision to have at my age 38. The hair I have is nappy. I am thinking I could have gotten my brain illness from chemicals. The process of chemical hair straightening is what destroyed my hair. I liked the relaxed look but it ruined my hair.  I decided to go au naturale. I’m dark and lovely. No turning back!
