mama I made it… 1 year post relaxer

It seems so surreal to be at this moment… I am 1 year post relaxer; I last relaxed my hair on the 3rd of May 2015. It feels like the year has gone by so quickly and my hair has gone through so much in that space of time. I went from relaxed to transitioning to big chopping and becoming fully natural. I went through a period of not liking my hair much towards the end of my transition, and after big chopping I was thrust into a new world of short natural hair. This new world has been a steep learning curve in its own right.

So instead of writing a whole long post about this milestone I have reached, I decided to do a video instead. In this video I go in depth about my hair journey through the last year and I do a length check! It’s funny to realise that my current length is what I have grown in the past year, I essentially started from bald. I also show never seen before footage of my big chop, lol! It’s a worldwide premiere.
