    Going natural has taught me patience. My hair is taking years to grow and be able to style. I can not find any styles that I can get done to my natural hair to make it look neat and sophisticated. I want to go back to my perm, but then again I would prefer staying natural if I could get an acceptable style that will last, be neat looking, and stylish.

    Patience is what I have learned through this unfortunate transition. I am concerned about going to a perm and then something happening and I have to go back natural. This is a situation I have no control over, so I just must be patient and deal with it. I am doing much better since I kept a wig off because for some reason that caused more damaged to my hair as far as thining. I hate so bad my hair got damaged. And it is a waste to get it done if I cannot get a style I like and will last.
    With this hot weather that I do not like either cold or hot, I just as well stay natural and pull back into a pony tail. No use stressing over hair, something I have always had and kept done looking nice. The tomb shall pass!

    Haha, I think the problem is doing your own hair. Especially the braided styles as it doesn’t look good if the braids are uneven in any way. I’m transitioning from relaxed to natural and most styles seem to require 4 hands and 10 yrs experience to pull off.

    I would love to see styles that newbies can pull off. Oh and somwthing that doesn’t make the hair product heavy would really help. Thanks
