Transitioning to natural hair can be, and usually is, difficult.
The transition to natural hair is especially hard for people with very-closed minded friends and family who believe that relaxed is better.
Just remember that it’s your hair and your choice, so make it for yourself and never for anyone else.

The big chop is pretty scary for people who are in the work place with people who are very uneducated when it comes to beauty. A few words of wisdom to you ladies going down this path. If you don’t clear the path for natural haired employes, who will?
Unfortunately, there will always be people who don’t like your hair, no matter what race you are or what hair type you have. And sometimes it’s worse when you have type 4 hair, but that’s okay, because it’s nothing about you.
Who cares if someone doesn’t like you hair? If you base your happiness on someone else, you become limited to them.
Natural hair isn’t just a hairstyle, its lifestyle. It affects the way people look at you, and even how you look at yourself. It goes deeper than the locs, the braids, and the natural hair products. It’s a whole new you.
Whenever I wear my hair out, people stare, they smile, their heads go to the side, they scratch their chins, their eyes narrow…but that’s okay, because I love my hair.
I believe everyone should love at least one thing about themselves. So why not let it be a healthy choice?
