In October of 2010, my senior year at Agnes Scott College, I decided to do the big chop and finally see what the natural hair God gave me looked like. Ever since I was six I had nothing but chemically relaxed hair atop my head. This is my story and my journey that I have decided to document over the next few years as my hair continues to grow out. I wanted to document this to see what my hair does at different lengths and to see how it transforms… Here is my story and I hope that my journey can help others.
My hair type: 4b/4c(?)
According to the Naturallycurly website, my particular curl pattern is 4b or Coily Springy. My hair looked like the pictures above after a wash and go (after adding a plethora of leave in conditioners) My hair needs moisture!
My hair has a super high density, meaning there is a whole-lot-a hair per square inch. The texture is soft like cotton and yarn and is very thick.
