  1. Thank you for posting this. I did sew-ins for about a year and a half and now have a full head of natural hair and I’m loving it. However, I am having problems finding time to maintain it and/or not applying heat because I haven’t found styles that I really like for me. I LOVE your hair in this video and it is a reflection of a future goal for how I want my hair to look. Keep posting these helpful tips and please ignore the IGNORAMUS comments. Remember . . . smile minds are easily amused.

    God bless.

  3. Chime,
    Thanks for the info. You should meet Rych McCain author of Black Afrikan Hair And The Insanity Of The Black Blonde Psych. He is a psychologist who has presented his “self-esteem” workshop across the US and Canada. The psychological preparation for the liberation of the hair is, of course, crucial given the vicious attacks on nappy hair.

    good luck

  4. Chime, you are truly an inspiration to us all (natural and permed black girls alike). After watching a few of your Youtube videos, I am convinced that I HAVE to go natural. My hair used to be as long as yours and was very wavy, but due to my mom not knowing how to manage it, she chopped it all off and permed it. I am 40something now and have been perming for over 30 years. Do you think my hair will go back to it’s original texture?

    Again, thank you for your willingness to share and educate the masses.
