CURLYFEATURE – MEET Iman

Hi curly girls I'm Iman. For starters I'm 22. I am currently a college student majoring in Computer Information Systems. Honestly I don't really have a great or fantastic reason for joining the natural community. I just decided one day that I wanted to start the natural process and that's what I did. I have been fully natural for about 2 years now. Initially I started transitioning in Nov. 2014 , but that was definitely a no go for me. So in June of 2015 I spontaneously decided to do the big chop. Doing so was not a hard decision for me because I've had my hair cut super short once before. So I guess I just had the mentality of the song "Let it Go" from the movie Frozen. I can say that on my natural journey I have realized managing my hair has been a much easier process than I thought. My # 1 rule for maintaining my natural crown...

I’ll start off by saying being “natural,” was one of the best things I’ve committed to since my last perm in 2012. I did not always love my hair texture, as a matter of fact, I despised it. My coils were untameable. I was addicted to the “ creamy crack” for  so long that I would perm my hair every two weeks. To the extent, thatI had no regard to protect my roots because my vantage point of beauty was distorted. After realizing this, I sat down to weigh out my options. “ What will people think of me?” “Will I look less attractive?” [Photo taken in 2012] Later on the CREAMY CRACK became a huge expense that I no longer wanted to entertain. At this point, I was ready for a change. So, then my natural hair journey began. It went well for a couple months but I soon got sucked into weaves and perms yet again. To be honest, as...

CURLYFEATURE – MEET Brittany

Hello my curlyfriendsssss  ☺ My name is Brittany and I decided to go natural in 2015. I’m a YouTube fanatic so I would always look on YouTube for videos about weave and make up all the time. As I watching these videos, I came across videos of natural hair YouTubers, and I fell in looooooove. Around late 2014, my hair began to break off from sew ins and not taking care of my hair. I cut my hair into a pixie cut in October of 2014. After this cut, my hair grew tremendously. So I began to think, now is a good time to begin transitioning. I began to fall in love with my curls and there was no turning back because crack is whack, lol. April 26, 2015 was my last relaxer. I transitioned for a little less than a year. During the summer, I would wear rod sets or have protective styles such sew ins and braids. From watching naturalistas...

Hey beauties, My name is Dominique, this is my second time going natural and doing my big chop. The first time I decided to do my big chop my hair was in very bad condition from relaxers and hair dye. I was natural for exactly a year and then put another relaxer in my hair which was a huge mistake. So I did big cop #2 because I missed my curls so much. And just having healthy natural hair in general. As of now I've been natural for 1 year and 2 months. I love being natural so much. It's given me a new kind of confidence that I didn't have before. I'm constantly trying new hairstyles on my hair and watching YouTube tutorials lol. But my go to style is two strand twist out. My hair loves it and it makes my hair retain length and hold moisture. It's amazing all the things you can do with your hair. My rule...

Hii lovelies! My name is Talaya, and once I went natural, I NEVER went back! Lol. I've been natural for about a year and a half now. I've cut my hair into a pixie style several times now, but it wasn't until my last big chop that I became 100% natural and stopped getting relaxers. I absolutely love all natural hair. I feel that it is so beautiful and brings so much personality to the table! I cut my hair in May of 2015 and let it grow until August of 2016 before I decided to chop it all off again lol. (I do that A LOT) I've always had naturally curly hair, but I've always gotten relaxers, I would dye my hair, bleach my hair, and straighten it like crazy. It wasn't until I realized that my curls were completely fried and stringy and straight that I knew I had to take that plunge into the natural world. Now, with that...
