How long have you been natural and when did you BC?
I’ve been natural all of my life, 42 years. My hair was always straightened with a hot comb, but I’d wear it in its natural in the summer. But, I did have a three-month stint with a Jherri Curl when I was around 10. I hated it so my hairdresser at the time let me transition by growing it out. I’ve never done a big chop, unless you count the time when I accidentally grew dreadlocks and let my daughter cut them out when I got tired of having them. Back then, there wasn’t any information on how to maintain natural hair, so my wash and go (which I let go a little too long) turned into dreadlocks.
