What and/or who inspired you to express your natural hair?

I have gone “natural” before just because money was low. Over time I some how returned to my perms. In 2009, I noticed my hair was thinning and changing for the worse. I ended up going to an expensive hair salon to have a hair stylist ”fix” my hair, then realized like my life, something was changing, and I had to listen and adapt to it. In 2010, I decided to join Whitney and go natural (she had been natural since 2009). After transitioning for several months, July 4th weekend, I took some kitchen scissors and cut off the remaining 8 inches of perm! From that point on I began to wear big wigs (love them!). I also did a lot of research and had long natural discussions with Whitney. We realized that hair care in conjunction with our workout routines was a big issue that was not addressed in hair books, websites, blogs and such. So began to research and develop our own routines.
