Hi I’m Bri, I first started going natural in 2011.I was over spending money on perms and visits to the hair salon. I cut my permed hair into a short style and transitioned out of the short style by using protective styling. As my hair got longer I began using heating tools which damaged my hair. I did my second big chop(my current style) myself at the end of 2015 to get rid of the damage. I love my short natural cut but I plan to start growing it out this year.

– Number one rule for maintaining my curls:  Just let your curls be! It’s easy to obsess over the length of your hair and wanting your curls to be perfect like your latest Instagram hair crush. Obsessing over length can lead you to be overwhelmed and frustrated with the whole process.

– Things to remember while going natural: The trick is to embrace your hair at every stage and enjoy your natural hair journey. Don’t stress over having the perfect style, just find a great moisturizer and deep conditioner and chill.

Things natural hair will teach you: Natural hair will teach you to love yourself 100%. Hair is only a small part of the bigger picture. As women we sometimes feel we need to fix or change things about ourselves in order to be accepted. Going natural has taught me that there is beauty in just being you!
