Chime Edwards: My Natural Hair Journey
The journey from relaxed to natural tresses can be a bit treacherous for some. The most difficult part is finding a hairstyle that looks good with both new natural growth and relaxed hair. There are many women who cut their relaxer off very quickly; within a month or two. They opt to rock a TWA (teeny weeny afro) or a fade. There are others who desire a little more length, like myself, who wait a year or two before they do the BC or Big Chop. The video below chronicles my two-year journey from relaxed hair to natural. I hope it provides inspiration for some of you who may be considering going natural and those who are already on their journey to hair freedom.
