how long have you been 100% natural and why did you decide to go natural

I have been transitioning since early last year (unsure of actual date). I decided to go natural because I was tired not only of putting chemicals in my hair but also of the drastic difference in hair texture whenever it was time for a touch-up. My hair would behave so differently whenever during this time and I was so tired of this. I also wanted to try something different.

what is the one thing that frustrates you with your natural hair

Transitioning styles are very limited, for me. I'm normally a low-maintenance person when it comes to hair so this is a very different, more time-consuming regimen for me to get used to. I don't know what to do with my hair basically. I want to cut off my relaxed hair but don't know what I'd do with my natural hair at its current length.

How did you hear about our group

A co-worker who just joined your group.

What are your expectations from this group

To get some ideas on how to manage and style my type of natural hair. I think I have 4a-4c types on my head.


I am a fairly new Tampa resident who moved from up north. I work in the healthcare field and am transitioning now. I'm looking for a group who can provide some guidance and education regarding this endeavor.
