Thinning Relaxed Hair
This was a few months before going natural. My relaxed hair was superlong and pretty healthy, considering that I was chemically straightening it every six weeks. It all came crashing down when I trusted a friend's mum to relax my hair, and she didn't use a neutralizer, which meant that the chemicals sat on my scalp and my hair began falling out. What you see in this photo is after that happened, and my straightened hair became quite thin. So, I decided to start my natural hair journey, as I didn't even know what my naturally curly hair looked like — unacceptable!
