Hi my name is Tracey. I am a month shy of turning 49 years old, I am also a wife and a mother. I am currently attending school to become diagnostic medical sonographer. I have been natural 12 1/2 years. In 2004 I was laid off and could not continue to perm my hair. So I started getting my hair braided. One day I went to get my hair braided and asked the stylist, “If you cut the permed hair can you braid my hair?” She answered yes and the rest is history.
I would encourage anyone wanting to return natural to love themselves, be confident and don’t allow anyone to make you feel bad about your decision. It does take patience, you must find what works for you. Your natural hair is beautiful and so are you!
I love bentonite clay to clarify my hair and scalp, Giovanni Smooth as Silk conditioner, Shea Moisture’s Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Hair Masque, Mielle Organics Moisturizing Hair Milk, NeKeShea Butternut Leave In Conditioner, and Vitamin E oil.
I have two go to styles: Wash n Go’s and mini twists.
However, I am taking a turn in my natural hair journey. I began my loc journey as of 2-12-16. I hope that you will join me and watch the progression of my loc journey.
