Hair Diary: Maiya B.

We spotted this hair diary on OnSugar blog Naturally Obsessed. Here's an excerpt from a Q&A with a woman who's taken her hair natural:

When and why did you decide to go natural?

I have actually attempted to go natural twice before.  The first time was when I was 16, after graduating from high school. The second time was when I was 19 years old.  Neither time did I take the journey to natural hair BLISS as seriously as this third time!  My last perm was in April 2008 and I BC'd [did the "big chop"] in September of 2008 and wore my hair in a mohawk for about a year.  I decided to go natural because I was tired of living my life around my hair.  I just went swimming for the first time in years because when I had a perm, I didn't want to mess up my hair.  When I looked back at my childhood pictures when I was permed, I saw my kinky curly hair healthy, full and all the way down my back. I said to myself, "THAT is me! This perm is NOT!"  I am putting my foot down and embracing Maiya as God created her!
