How did you transition and what was your transition style?
Rewind back to July 2011 when I was in my last year in college; my hair was relaxed, caramel-blonde colored, and extremely damaged. I didn’t have much money to get my hair done, so my hair grew out without me knowing that […]

My Big hair is:
a conversation starter
an unspoken statement
my crown and glory
She’s […]
