My name is Pearline Jean-Charles and I’m from Brooklyn New York. I have been natural since 2012, so let’s just say 4 years.
I returned natural because perms weren’t working for me. My hair was just too course for it. My hair always had a hard time taking the relaxer and boy was I tired of getting burned.
My advice that I would give to someone who is thinking about returning natural is to go for it and thank me later lol; but for real though, it’s a beautiful journey. Some days are easier than others but it’s well worth it.
On your natural hair journey, you learn a lot about yourself. It’s not as hard as people make it look but not as easy as people make it seem either. One more thing, don’t get caught up in how other people’s hair look. Your journey is your own.
Some of my favorite products are: Eden’s Body’s Works Coconut Shea line, As I Am Co Wash and Eco Styler gel (the pink one). These are just to name a few.
My favorite go to natural style is a braid out.
