hair-journey-relaxed-to-natural-hair-bonafidestyle

ThirstyRoots.com InstaFeature @bonafidestyle went from relaxed to long natural hair in 3 years and 8 months, and shares her hair care and styling tips on her instagram page and YouTube channel (thebonafidestyle). Growing her natural hair, as she describes as “Big Bertha”, was something that just happened, as she states:

Flashback! Once upon a time, when I first started my hair journey, all I wanted was healthier relaxed hair (which I did achieve). But then I fell in love with my new growth and decided to continue to grow out my relaxer. Long story short, Big Bertha was born! Lol 🙂 #Teamnatural #Teamnatural_ #naturalhairdaily #trialsntresses #naturalhairdoescare #naturalpartnersincrime #naturalhair #returnofthecurls #goodhairmagazine #blackgirllonghair #blackgirlwithlonghair #bglh #4chairchick #4chairchicks #naturallyhappyhair #mynaturaldopeness #tendridsandcurls #thirstyroots #kinkyhair #kinks #serentyshair #afrohair #afro #amazingnaturalhair #curlluxenaturals #bighairdontcare #borntobenatural #naturalskillinit

10 things to know about @bonafidestyle:

1. This is 3 yrs and 8 months of hair growth (blow dried) 2. My last relaxer was July 2010. 3. I transitioned for a year and a half. 4. I don’t take any hair supplements (never have), only a regular multivitamin. 5. My hair grows in a ‘V’, this is the longest point. 6. The back of my hair grows faster than other sections (especially the back middle section). 7. The front is about “boob length” 8. My hair regimen/products video is on my youtube channel (link on my ig page). 9. “My hair isn’t growing” Yes it is! Hair is always growing (unless you have medical issues). 10. Length retention results from proper hair care and healthy living (low manipulation, protective styles, moisturizing, cleansing, deep conditioning, drinking lots of water, eating a healthy diet, exercise, low stress, etc)

Mini Twists:

Every time I do mini twists I vow to never do them again! Why?? Because it took me FIVE HOURS to complete these twists. So, clearly my goal to finish in less than 3 hours was a little too ambitious.

Braidouts:

Same ole chick….just a different day! 🙂 Left: September 2013 Right: Jan 2013. Both styles are braidouts on blow dried hair. Products used: shea moisture. I sometimes use aloe vera gel for extra curl. #Teamnatural_ #naturalhairdaily #trialsntresses #naturalhairdoescare #myhaircrush #bighairdontcare #naturalhair #returnofthecurls #themanechoice
