I just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself and tell you a little about my journey. My name is Evelyn but all my family and friends call me Eve. I started this blog as a way to document my natural hair journey and to hopefully provide some useful information to my followers. I contemplated going natural for several years before I made the decision to go for it. I was always envious of people I saw who were natural and thought their hair was beautiful. Finally, I got fed up with having an extremely dry and irritated scalp so I decided the relaxer I got for my 30th birthday would be my last one. In January 2010 I officially began transitioning. I was able to fight the good fight for 8 months and then the struggle to maintain two different hair textures became too hard. My beautician cut the rest of my relaxed ends in August 2010. I wore protective styles (braids and sew-ins) for another 8 months. This allowed me to protect my ends in the colder months while giving my hair the opportunity to grow to a length I would be comfortable wearing out. In April of this year I revealed my kinky tresses to the world and haven't looked back. I instantly fell in love with all things natural hair. I found myself spending hours researching, reading blogs, and watching YouTube videos. I have gained so much knowledge from several different media outlets which is what has made my journey a lot easier than I expected. As a result I have started this blog and an all natural product line in just five short months. In return I want to share what I know with others so their journey can be as painless as possible. I don't claim to know everything but as I continue to learn and make mistakes I will document them here so we can all grow!
Thank you for following!
