Today April 17, 2010 is my 1 year Nappiversary and I am soo excited. I cant believe that a full year has passed since I did my Big Chop (BC).
I transitioned for all of maybe 3 and a half months ....
Then I just grew really impatient and got it all cut off !!!!

I can't believe that my hair has grown so much.... It has not always been easy though. I remember once during this past year , I had kinky twists in my hair for about a month, and a half, by the time I took them out, my hair had started to lock at the roots...!!! (Insert my panic face here). 3 hours, 2 bucket full of tears and 2 fist full of hair later I was headed to the store to buy a box of perm. I eventually calmed myself down by looking at pictures of natural haired women, and I decided to give it another go. It has been a wonderful year with its ups and lots of downs but I am grateful that 1 year later it has definitely payed off and my hair is healthy, thick, and growing strong.... Looking forward to the next year of my natural hair journey... :)
