Before Big Chop VS 3months Post BC

 IndigenousCurls : What have you been up to? How are you handling your new do? What are your current concerns?

Tedica : Its been months since going natural. Surprisingly, I like it! I was a little worried at first, now Im   surprised by how much I actually like my hair. I would say my only issue with it is;  Length,  but I can see myself really  loving it maybe after about a year.

 IndigenousCurls :  What steps do take to remove your protective style and  maintain your hair?
Tedica’s Tips for  a Protective Style Take Down
when taking down a weave..
Step one: I have a friend cut the weave free using a small scissors.
Step two: I then took the braids out using my fingers. I rocked my braidout,  but it was just to uneven looking.
Step three: using a large comb and a bit of carrot oil, it was easy to detangle in small sections. After I completely comb through, I then use a scarf pulling it all back and tying the scarf around.
IndigenousCurls: Scarves & head wraps are all the rage this season. You really cant go wrong with them! There are so many ways to tie them, I love it!

Tedica:   I tried to do different looks but only came up with one that I was happy with.

IndigenousCurls: How are your friends and family reacting to your new do?

Tedica:  I was very surprised at the reactions of friends and family. I got a lot of positive feedback on the natural look! Honestly, it made me consider completely going natural.

IndigenousCurls: Last time we spoke you were not completely 'sold' on the natural hair movement. I'm so happy to hear you are falling in Love!

 Tedica: I surprised myself!   I actually like it more than I thought I would! Maybe after about a year I would be a little bit more comfortable being able to do different styles.

IndigenousCurls: Thank you for Sharing with Us! Im excited to continue to follow your journey.
