2007 BIG CHOP! After Step-Practice
2003 - A year into college out in Hawaii, I decide I can’t keep up with the humidity. First try at being natural.
2005 - I find a beautician that specialized in “healthy relaxers”. Though I don’t really want to wear my hair bone straight, the relaxer loosens my curls. I’m in LOVE. Get to rock out with my curls out. Just wet and go.
2007 -BIG CHOP! I came home at 2:00 am from step practice devastated over a break up, and decided to chop off what that ex-loved the most—my long silky hair. (TMI???) Not only that, but I had become so frustrated at the fact that only a few strands of perpetrating “long” hair remained. In the bathroom, and I couldn’t find a pair a scissors to save my life…so I did it with finger nail clippers.
2007-2008- Mostly natural, but still struggling to fully embrace. Los Angeles is with land of 85” exotic weaves. You got that Indian 30”? Malaysian? Brazilian?? Whaaaaat???? LoL.
2009- Rockin’ the natural for my President at the inauguration!!! Spent a month in Chocolate City where they love the natural look. Got more play with the curls that straight hair. I could get used to this…
2010- Obsession sets in full force. CurlyNikki, Natural Chica, ChescaLocs my new virtual BFF’s.
2012- CurlyQueen is born!!!
