Hi curlfriends! I’m Destiny. I’ve been natural since May of 2013. Years before, I remember telling my mom (a hairstylist) that I really wanted an afro. She told me that I would have to cut all my hair off and I just wasn’t up for that.

Some time went by and I started seeing more and more natural hair videos on YouTube. Lo and behold, I discovered transitioning! I was so excited to learn that I didn’t have to chop all my hair off to have a fro! I had my last relaxer September of 2012 and never looked back. My original plan was to transition for two years, but I couldn’t wait and cut off my relaxed ends months later. I had been getting relaxers since I was four years old, so I had no idea what my “real” hair looked like, but when I saw it I fell in love!

I want to encourage everyone to be chemical free. Kick the relaxer to the curb! If you don’t necessarily want a fro, you don’t have to go that route. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being a straight natural. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from wearing my hair in its natural state, it’s moisture is key. Our hair is naturally dry. The natural oils that our scalps produce can take a while to get from root to tip because it’s having to travel down twists, turns, and kinks. So it’s imperative that we keep our hair moisturized, especially the ends. Moisture can prevent breakage which, in turn, helps with length retention.
