Hello my name is Janay, I am 22 years old and I have been natural only for about a year. I went natural after pining at other beautiful naturals on YouTube. I had it in my mind that my hair wasn’t even actually curly and shaved my head to see what would happen. After about a year of dying and shaving my hair I began to let it grow out without applying heat or chemicals. February of 2015 I started to notice curls at the front of my hair but the rest was still pretty damaged. I did a big chop in April and have left it alone since then. I have been so happy with my hair growth and would honestly never go back to the constant straightening and coloring of my hair. I love my curly hair.
