I've been wearing my hair natural for almost one year. What that means is that I don't have any chemicals in my hair to straighten it. I know that natural hair has been a hot topic this year. Let me start by saying that I am not against any woman chemically straightening their hair. I'm all about women doing what makes them happy. I decided to go natural because of one reason – it's easier for ME to maintain. I love water and no matter where I travel I must hit the water. I always try with a basic swimsuit so I can swim at the hotel. I found for me that being able to wash and go was the best for me.
When I started out, I had not heard of Thank God I'm Natural by Chris-Tia Donaldson, but I'm recommending it for women who have no clue what to do. I love that Chris-Tia is not badgering the relaxed ladies in this book. The book is full of helpful tips, tricks, and encouragement if you are starting on a natural hair journey. It also has a comprehensive listing of salons that cater to natural hair all over the world. I've added a few of the salons to my address book so I can pay them a visit on my travel. This book is a great source of hair products that I need and want to try. Do I still straighten my hair – yes, I blow dry it every few weeks, but that's it. I can't wait to see my hair in the summer with various styles, but you know I will keep you posted. Remember, you do you. Be happy and be beautiful whatever way you decide to wear your hair.
