Tomorrow is my Natural Hair Anniversary and I can’t believe that it’s been a year already. Doing the Big Chop and embracing my natural hair has been the best thing that I could have done for my hair. It hasn’t been this healthy or strong in a very long time. No more super dry, itchy scalp. No more breakage. No more random bald patches. Just healthy, flowing and growing hair. After four haircuts and one year, I’m still loving my natural hair. Here’s an overview of my first year with natural hair in pictures. Enjoy!

I got my hair tapered later that day.

My hair has been growing out extremely fast and I believe that it’s because I don’t manipulate it too much. Most of my hairstyles last for one to two weeks. I wash, deep condition, moisturize, style and leave it be until next time. As you can see I’ve been very scissor happy. I loved me a short cut in my relaxer days and that hasn’t changed. It’s just hair it will grow back!
