My Hair Story! Part II: Embracing the Kinks
Once my hair started growing out, I noticed the texture of my roots was much kinkier than my ends. I also had some straight pieces. I realized that the damage was a result of my frequent straightening combined with coloring and not properly caring for my hair prior to cutting, I later big chopped again removing all of my damaged ends on June 20, 2011. I still count August 29, 2010 as my first day natural because the hair that grew from that point on was my natural texture. I was only removing what had been done prior to that date.
Now having gone through so many setbacks with damage, I have decided to not straighten my hair again. I'll stretch with either curl formers or do an occasional blow out, but I'm not straightening. I still color my hair but I use semi-permanent dyes that do not contain hydrogen peroxide, alcohol, or ammonia. I like Manic Panic and Adore semi-permanent colors. I also do henna treatments, but haven't done them in a long time and want to begin implementing those in my regimen again.
I hope these posts help someone along his/her own hair journey.
