"What made me go natural is when I started losing hair from bad relaxers it wasn't until I was a teenager when I decided to be completely natural when I really discovered YouTube videos that showed me that having natural hair is better than having relaxed hair. I actually struggled at first from using flat irons on my hair, 24/7. It really started out hard especially being a high school student then out of the blue I just stop caring I decide to do fros, braid outs, mini twists and other protective styles.I had help along the way from natural mentors and friends but I still got some criticism from school so I will go back and forth between flat ironing to protective styles. I have dyed my hair a couple times and now I'm really serious about my hair and my body. So now I currently been a whole month without using any heat."

"Really wanted my hair to grow. The relaxer just wasn't cutting it and it wasn't a healthy option for my hair."

"I went natural because I was surrounded by so many people with beautiful and natural hair. I started to understand my culture better. I also started to better understand myself."
- Charmaine Harris
"I was at a point in my life where I hit rock bottom. I didn't know who I was and didn't think I had anyone (besides family) who knew the REAL me. When I began to transition, I saw who my real friends were by their response to my God given hair! Some made fun of me and some encouraged and uplifted me in each phase of my journey. That's when I realized I too wanted to be an inspiration for other young adults."

"When I was relaxed, my hair wouldn't grow past a certain point [my chin]; so I wanted to see how long my hair would grow if I stopped getting relaxers."
"My hair wouldn't retain length, and began to fall out and thin due to heat and chemicals."
