Interview with Black Girl Long Hair

In my continuing quest for natural hair world domination *insert unnecessarily long evil laugh here* I was interviewed by the blog Black Girl Long Hair, which is a wonderful, glorious blog community centered around natural hair, about my experience being natural. Read the interview here! Drop a comment there if you like. You can also use this post on my blog to ask me any questions about natural hair in the comments. I know some people from there are now following my blog here, so welcome to you! Thank you for reading!

I read this interview on Black Girl Long Hair and it was VERY inspiring. Right now I'm trying to go natural. I have been relaxing my hair since I was 7 years old so now I'm trying to out grow the relaxer and cut it all off.
"I thought to myself, wow I can think of many black women over 40 who either have thin, breaking permed hair, extremely short or moderately short permed hair, or straight up Patti Labelle wigs. It awed me to think of the roots behind perming hair in our culture. This woman was so serene, solid, and just had this aura about her. From that day, I knew I would be that woman one day."
When I read that particular part of your interview I just felt encouraged and inspired. Sometimes when I see people with relaxed hair, I'm tempted 2 relax my hair but I know it's not best 4 my hair and honestly deep down I don't wanna do it. So just reading your interview, motivated me all over again :-)

I have been debating for over a year now on whether or not to do it. I tried to transition and it just sucked major ones. Now thinking about the big chop *eek*. We'll see. And...still waiting on my drafted email LOL

Anonymous: That means a lot to me for you to say that, thank you very much. Have you considered setting up a Fotki page? It is very helpful to see others going through the same stages as you; especially when it gets frustrating. E-mail me at bohemianbahamian@gmail.com if you have any other questions.

Bloggal: I JUST got your e-mail again from KB to address this! I'll still e-mail you about vegetarian/vegan stuff. Coming to your blog in a few!

SA: Thank you, darling!

Epitome: LOL, GET CRUNK! I definitely recommend the big chop over transitioning. *back to e-mail draft*

Chanel: THANK YOU! I still can't believe I just had it cut off so suddenly, but I have no regrets.

Babydoll: Thank you so much for your kind words!
