Not ashamed or intimidated by transitioning hair
When I went natural the first time, I didn’t really know what to expect. Having received my first relaxer in elementary school, I had little to no memory of my hair in its natural state. As a result, I was really intimidated by the idea of managing the two different textures at once. As a result, I often sought to cover up my hair with certain “protective” styles. This time around, I am much more skilled as it relates to styling my own hair and managing both textures.
