Natural hair

I am transitioning???

I know right? Was she not natural a few months ago? Why did she touch up in the first place? I wish I could answer that… For those who are new to my blog, I started off fully relaxed, Big chopped due to a set back and was natural for about 5 months or so touched up in October 2015


I stretched till January and touched up again… But after this touch-up something was different… I just didn’t see myself touching up again… The excitement of relaxing my hair was gone and from that, I knew something was up. I spoke to Lungi about this and she lent me an ear and advised me to go with the flow. I did… and as time went on, I started questioning myself as to what is the real reason why I touch up…

  • I loooove  relaxed hair… the image of how my hair would grow long and look silky and straight I absolutely love it… however that can be achieved with Natural hair too.
  • Relaxed hair is what I am used to… I have had relaxed hair all my life except the brief time that I big chopped. that is not reason enough


As every day went passed I needed to be natural… the more natural hair pictures I see the more I felt that I wanted to go natural but it was still a dilemma in my mind on what to do hence I kept it to myself… However, my number one rule on the hair journey aspect of this blog is complete transparency when it comes to my hair so I decided to share what has been going one.

Transitioning Stats and Schedule

  • Currently, 17 weeks post touch up
  • The last touch up was 6  January 2016
  • I don’t have a big chop date yet. It will all depend on my growth rate
  • Planning on learning as much as I can about managing transitioning hair on YT and from other transitioning blogs (I am open for tips)
  • I will share my transitioning journey with you guys every step of the way


Sharing this was the hardest  thing I have done because I do not trust myself to follow through, I am so scared that one day I will wake up and just decide to touch up… but I will do my very best to follow through. For now, I am fully committed and I will keep the-the faith. Wish me luck!

One more thing… my transition to natural hair does not mean I will no longer we covering relaxed hair on my blog. I still will so to all my relaxed ladies, I still got u ;).

And another one more thing… I will record a video explaining myself further regarding this transition so do stay tuned *hugs & kisses
