Introducing...Cece's Curls

Age 4, Pre-relaxer

So last week I announced on Twitter and on this Solange post that I made the big move to chop off my relaxer and rock out with my natural curls. Major right? It's taking me a while to get used to having short hair after having long extensions for so long but it's growing on me. I won't go into a long exhaustive explanation of my hair journey (I'll probably make a Youtube video or something) but I will tell you that this isn't the first time I've gone natural. I got my first relaxer at about 9 or 10 years old and after that up until my High School Senior Prom, I relaxed my hair religiously every 6 weeks. Once I got to college, I didn't feel like dealing with the maintenance or the monetary commitment so I chopped it off. It grew out beautifully.Then I had a relapse and relaxed it again in May 2009.

 Yikes! 4 years worth of curls, gone! Well I'm back at it again. When I chopped off my hair in 2006 there weren't really any forums or websites except Nappturality.com so I wasn't vewry informed.This time I've been armed with hours of Youtube tutorials and cutesy sites like MoptopMaven, CurlyNikki and KisforKinky to keep me occupied. Anyway, my first "hair video: should be up on Youtube within the next week so all you natural gals who care to listen can follow me on there. I'll post updates and product reviews to LoveBrownSugar every once in a while, but I promise it won't take over...

  10. I am doing the same thing girl, but I just don't have the courage or something to rock out with my natty. I've been wearing wigs. I love DRAMA in my hair and my real hair just doesnt give me that, so I like the wigs for that reason.

    You look AMAZING with the short curls. You've got the look for it. :-) Can't wait to see the rest of your journey!

    I'm slowly coming off of the relaxer myself (via a really mild texturizing treatment every 3 months). I'm too chicken to do the big chop! LOL

  20. i'm having the hardest time getting my natural hair to work for me. It just doesn't want to do anything. I have to find some more products, i might even go to a natural hair salon and see what they offer too.
