|Hair thinning |
The decision for me was very simple. Many older readers know that about a year and a half ago, I had a setback. In the time that it took to grow out the damage to my hair (a year, plus, of trimming back to APL!), I also realized that my hair was thinning significantly at my crown. I am not 100% certain that this was the cause of my setback; in fact, I am not sure that the two things are related at all, but both of these things together made me decide that I need to give life sans relaxers a try. I'm not sure that my hair will ever be it's thickest at the crown (I will probably always have to do a mean comb-over that is very effective at hiding!) but I think continuing to relax my hair would only make the issue worse.
My healthy RELAXED hair journey was NECESSARY for me to decide to go natural though! Without seeing that I COULD grow and MAINTAIN a nice (for ME!) length of hair showed me that even if I have to cut my hair, it WILL grow back and it WILL be healthy, because I've done it before!
How many of you are currently transitioning or thinking about it? Let me know in the comments!!
