Video: Wait! Before You Relax Your Natural Hair, WATCH THIS!

(X-posted at Long Hair Care Forum)

I don’t know if you all remember, but about a year ago I had a meltdown over the frustration of my natural hair. (I wrote about it here on LHCF on a thread called Naturals…Why Is My Hair Not Growing? I also did a video about it on Youtube. I was SO mad!) It was such a hard time in my life. It was dry, brittle and not growing (or so I thought). I ran on over here and did a post asking why my hair wasn’t growing and all that jazz. Now, I am loc’ing, but my hair is healthier and happier than ever, and I’m still natural. I created a video for those that are frustrated, confused, scared, or feel ashamed, not confident, not supported and alone. Hopefully this helps someone. I’m working on a series of videos to help naturals and transitioners on my Natural Hair YT channel, Naturally Scandalous.

Here’s the video that I wish I had when I was on the verge of relaxing my hair.
