A chica whose transition to natural hair started with a challenge to see how long she could “stretch out” her relaxer!
WHEN YOU STARTED ROCKIN’ YOUR TWA
I started wearing my TWA about two weeks ago.
WHY DID YOU MAKE THE TRANSITION TO NATURAL HAIR?
Well initially I wanted to stretch out my relaxer…just to see how long I could go without a touch up and see if it would still look fresh. After finding out a friend who I thought was relaxed (she wears blow outs) was actually natural, I just started doing my research online. YOUTUBE & GOOGLE gave me so much information about the versatility of natural hair. I was so curious to see what my own natural hair would look like and also along with the facts of what a relaxer actually does to your hair is what made me vow to never get a relaxer again.
3 THINGS YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT HAVING A TWA
1 First, since it's summer right now I love not having to fuss with anything on my face, neck, or shoulders!
2 I also love the fact that styling in the morning doesn't take as long..just untwist..spray a little moisture mist and go!
3 I've never had my hair this short so I am enjoying this new look!

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO OTHERS WHO MAY BE CONSIDERING DOING THE BC?
I would say don't be too focused on length! I didn't plan on doing the BC , but after five months of transitioning I thought "well I'm wearing lace fronts anyway..may as well start the process" after I immediately got braids. I couldn't afford braids again so I decided to reveal my natural hair. Step out with confidence and boldness. I was one who thought I wouldn't look right with short hair. I actually really like it now. It's something every woman should experience at least once and you'd be surprised how much you and others around you may like it!
