Inspiration during my transition!
I just received this very inspirational email from "Transitioning from relaxed to natural", I know it maybe customary, but its inspiring me!! My beautiful natural daughter is my big inspiration for beautiful natural/healthy hair, but this gave a little more encouragement.
"When transitioning from relaxed to natural hair, you might get stuck, you might start to feel frustrated, you might want to quit and go back to straighteners.
When it gets challenging it is important to have reminders of why you are doing this to keep you motivated and focused.
Write down your wish or desire and put it up in your bathroom. “I want my beautiful, healthy, natural hair.” Think about or write down why you want to give up on relaxers.
For me it was that the chemicals were killing my scalp and I got one bad burn that was the last straw. I simply didn’t want to do it anymore, but when the transitioning gets a little tough, I think about my goals and it helps me to keep going. If you start thinking you might want to relax your hair again, watch the movie Good Hair. In particular the scene where he shows what happens to a piece of meat when the straightener is applied to it. Yuck!
