Relaxed since I was 5 years old, I struggled with my hair identity...as do many young black girls. It wasn't until after high school that I realized that maybe my hair calling was a natural one.

My last relaxed style was the short pixie cut I had upon entering my freshman year of college. Once that grew out, I tried kinky twists (the trend of 2004). The twists were removed after 3 months and I was horrified by the way my hair looked.

It was then that I decided to cut ALL of my hair off and start over. I coiled my hair after my it grew to 2" and have been locked ever since!

Transitioning natural hair with extensions...
by: Natasha - MyDreadlocks.com Admin

Using extensions, from kinky twists to locs, for transitioning to natural hair isn't rare...so don't feel bad about getting into the trend!

As you found out, what's important is the health of your hair underneath the extensions.

Glad you're now enjoying your lovely locs!
