Hi beautiful people!
My name is Chevel and I currently live in London. I just recently went back to being natural after 13 years of having my hair permed! 😱 Boy o boy was this a difficult decision to make.
Anyone who knows me, they will know how much I enjoy writing. I believe I express myself better through writing. To be honest I personally didn’t want to start a blog because in my mind I was like “there is so many blogs out there doing this, I don’t know much about hair, I just went back to being natural so what on earth am I even going to say, will anyone even read my blog?” and so many more thoughts. I literally had to push past those thought and just go for it!
A part of the reason I decided to share my journey is, before I decided to go back to my natural hair I read loads of blogs and watched loads of YouTube channels. I was looking for some sort of help with making my decision lol. A lot of what I read and watched encouraged me to make this big step and I just what to share my journey with others. I am sure there are many women out there who have thought about the idea of going back to their natural hair but didn’t have the support or a clue what to do once they went natural (that was me 🙈). I believe the more real life experiences you come across (good and bad)from others, the easier some things become for you and the more help you will get.
I know what may work for me may not work for you but I am willing to try different things to see what works and what doesn’t. I have already been trying a few things (3 weeks in) and I can already see what is working for my hair and what isn’t.
I would love to share my journey not only to length but also healthier hair. I can’t wait to experience new styles and become more creative with my hair!
Watch out for the next blog talking about my big chop!!!😱
