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 is to always remain positive even when your hair may not look so great. My go to steps that I think are essential for my hair would be deep conditioning and regular hot oil treatments. Show your strands the tender love and care that it deserves. Happy hair makes for a happy you.
For anyone out there who is thinking about going natural my advice to you would be to make sure that this is that you are passionate about. Also don’t let anyone make you feel bad or discourage you from what you feel strongly about. Just be yourself and slay while doing so!
I would love to stay connected with you all. Follow me on Instagram @faith.is_i
