    Default 10 years nappy!

    I just wanted to give myself a pat on the back for being napptural 10 years straight!!! When I started this journey I had NO IDEA I would've stuck with it for so long. I transitioned for 8 months before doing the BC. I was so scared of what my hair would look like and how I was going to be perceived.. I have loved and appreciated my hair through all of its nappyness :-) I admit I miss having my locs but I love changing my loose naps up. Thank you Dee for starting this website. I first visited the site back in 2002/03 and while it has changed a bit since then the message stays the same. Without you and the wonderful ladies that have been here I don't know if I would've had the courage to do it. 10 years ago there wasn't too many nappturals in the midwest- I was even made fun of at one point. But that didn't stop me, in fact it kept me going and now here I am. Loving it!!! My daughter who is almost 15 has had napptural hair her whole life and still says she never wants a relaxer. She went through the hot comb/flat iron/fried ends stage and appreciates her kinks, curls and coils now. Now she has really gotten into the nappy scene with experimenting different styles and cuts. Neither one of us could do it without this site though. So once again Dee THANK YOU!!!

    10 years!?? Sometimes I look back and can't believe it's been that LONG! This is some journey, especially cuz you started it way back in the day when things were really tough. We were fighting discrimination all over and there were hardly any of us. Still fighting the battle but it's easier when we have more people around us who support the natural. I'm coming up on 15 years now. It kind of freaks me out though that I was 15 years younger back then! LOL if that makes sense! And I still haven't locked... yet.

    How nice to share. It's so great to read of such experiences and even better to know that you are paying it forward. I am sure your daughter will do so too.
