Chime Edwards: My Natural Hair Journey

Post By RelatedRelated Post

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.

  1. I am a 61 year old female. I got my last perm in January 2009. In July when it was time for a perm, I did a wash and go and realized I liked it. I started with short hair. My hear is healthy and went from very short to half way down my back. I tried to convince my daughters to go natural but after two months they go right back to the perm. It takes patience and trying new hairdos. I get compliments daily. My hair was getting thinner every time I did a perm and I only did it every four or five months a year. I love wearing pony tails and different hair styles. Everyone says they did not know older women’s hair could grow so long. My daughter does my hair. I can workout and pin it up and still have curls or wear a pony tail. I love it and will never go back to a perm. My granddaughter is going natural also.

  2. Love…love…love Chime’s hair! It’s so healthy and beautiful. I too have gone natural; it’s been about 4 years. However, I’m back at the beginning stages due to me listening to a beautician telling me I was doing more damage to my hair than good by going natural. Futhermore she told me my hair was falling out massively. So I panicked and asked her what to do; of course she recommended a vigorol (UGHHHH). I did apply the vigorol and felt completely sadden after the fact. So I say to others DO NOT get discouraged; there are so many GREAT products/styles for natural hair. Talk to people that deal with natural hair for guidance. Most importantly, KEEP IT NATURAL ladies!
