    Hello everyone,
    My name is Dee and I'm from Philly, I cannot explain how happy I was to have found this site. I had wanted to go all natural for quite some time but was too chicken to do it. On September 16,2007 I just did it. I cut it all off ( well my husband did). I'm so glad I did. I have been checking out other ppl's albulm and saw that it was so much I could do with my hair as it grew and now I am so excited. I'm just beginning my journey so check me out at fotki.com/therealdeenaturally

    Hello everyone! I was a member of this board when I started my nappy journey back in 2003. I've been natural for 4 years and I came back here looking for new product advice. I've been wearing my hair short for the last few years and now I want to grow it out. I knew this was the place for support because I always get fed up with my hair and cut it again. So, I'm happy to be back and thanks in advance for all the advice I know you will give me.

    Talking

    Mary in Mandeville finally did the BC - second time; first was 1/02- kept for two years until the influence of my otherwise Pro-Black, au natural mother gave me &#39;The Look&#39;. <_<
    Just chopped it off an hour ago and can&#39;t stop screaming "WTF took so long?" I was so sick of feeling inauthentic and having to burn my hair straight with a flat flaming hot tool of hair torture every Sunday morning... on top of the CFC every other month. WTF!?!?! I keep looking at my almost-two-year-old daughter, thinking she is sooo gorgeous, I want to look like that. Cant with a mop on top. When i stepped out of the shower and saw my freshly cropped, washed do... maannnnnn my smile muscles hurt so bad right now. Can&#39;t wait til tomorrow to flaunt my stuff in this tiny ultra conservative part of the deep south. I live less than a quarter tank away from Jena. Ha Ha, this sista is fierce again. :afro:

    Hello sisters
    I&#39;m didi and I live in the UK. I too wish I had found this site years ago - especially when I recall all the years of frying my hair and scalp went through! I have been natural for 3 years now since I went to get a retouch which the stylist left on too long and half my hair fell off. I remember my anguish and waiting anxiously to see if it grew back. I swore to myself that if it did - no more chemicals, period. Well it did thank God and I have kept my promise to myself. It has been hard - I had no clue what to do so it was either braids or weaves in fact I still wear weaves! I&#39;m desperate to change this and to start truly enjoying my hair and coming across this site is a Godsend. I&#39;m hoping to make friends and get sure fire tips on what I need to rock a curly &#39;fro. All I can say is thanks for this site and I am so looking forward to finally enhancing my beautiful nappy hair.

    My name is Sandrine,

    I am from Berlin, Germany and I have been natural most of my life with short(er interruptions. I can&#39;t remember exactly when was the last time I had a perm. It must have been 5-6 years now. Then I decided that I was gonna love my hair the way it is. I kept braiding it though and never dared to show my fro. Until some days ago when I walked with it for the first time on the street.

    By now I have gotten used to all the white people staring at it and I&#39; m happy that I have been able to remove that fear I had of my own hair from my life.


    I am very grateful to all the advice and help I can find on this side. I realize that I still have to learn alot when it comes to dealing with my hair.

    All the best

    Sandrine

    congrats gurl! I know how you feel. I was very uncomfortable with my natural hair for awhile. It wasnt until maybe a few months ago that I was walking around with my head held in pride instead of looking around wondering who was looking at me bugged eyed.

    Welcome to NP.

    Hi all I&#39;m Tetbelle. I can&#39;t believe I joined this Forum 4 years ago and been lurking on and off ever since anyway.. I just noticed that there is a place to introduce yourself. I did a Big Chop almost a week ago now. I think it&#39;s my 3rd or 4th BC. I have been natural on and off now for about 12 years. When I went natural the first time there was hardly anybody that I knew wearing their hair natural and not the wealth of info there is today. I would relax my hair out of frustration and boredom. I&#39;m hoping I don&#39;t do that again because I love being natural. Anyway I am excited this time. It felt so good to cut my hair I&#39;m loving my short hair but plan on letting it grow. You can check out my Fotki if you like I will be tracking the growth every month from my BC.
