Natural hair is beautiful and versatile. Days are gone when Naturalistas are considered unattractive or unfashionable.
Posts like this encourage people who worry about growth (if they go natural) understand that growth is achievable, if only you take care of your hair.
I was inspired by some of these ladies to go natural not excluding other factors like thinning edges, burnt scalp due to hair relaxer and inhibited growth. I hope these ladies inspire you too.

Yes that’s me! Although my hair is still in it’s TWA stage but the beauty is undeniable. I went from badly damaged hair to a super healthy hair. I normally wear my hair in double-side cornows and twist out in the middle which from afar looks like locs. You can check out my hair regimen Here and also follow me on Instagram at Chiomazoe.
