Yay! It's finally my 1st month napptural anniversary!! :)

So I made it! Yay! I can finally say it's been one month since I BC'd. I have seen a lot of growth so far and my hair is thicker now. I am absolutely in love with my hair. I can't wait to see my hair in a few months to see the progress. I had an ugly day this week because I didn't feel pretty with my TWA. I felt very boyish and plain looking. I then started thinking maybe I should wear some bigger earrings or put on some makeup, but I snapped out of that mentality. Before I went natural, I wore little make up and wore small stud earrings and I refuse to change that about myself. I am still rocking my cute stud pearls and diamonds because those things make me Ashley Nicole. I know that I am beautiful on the inside and out and I have to remember that. I want to continue to be a confident sista with a TWA and I want to inspire other sistas too. Here's my YouTube video that shows my hair journey.

Sorry I've been so busy!

Twist out results

I have been doing a little bit of blogging on lately. That site is so addicting sometimes, but I strongly recommend it for any women that love to discuss their hair, ask questions and give advice as well. So far, I've been doing a lot of wash and go's with my TWA, but Saturday I decided to twist my hair. I was pretty nervous about doing a twist out, because my hair is so short, but it actually looked really good. I thought I could keep it for a few days, but my scalp itched so much! It even itched in my sleep, so today I washed my hair and just did the usual wash and go. I used Miss Jessie's Baby Buttercreme to twist my hair, but I think I need to use some oil on my scalp before I twist my hair. Maybe my scalp itched because it was dry. I don't know though. This past week, I started school again after studying abroad in Spain and I was so surprised by the reactions to my hair. Everyone liked my hair! What a pleasant surprise! :) In fact, some girls asked me why I decided to go natural. Some told me that they wish they could rock a TWA like me. It felt really good! That was one thing I was worried about, was being accepted again with my little afro. Now I know I have nothing to worry about.

Also, I have a YouTube account now! I only have one video on there now, but stay tuned for more videos. :)

I BC'd 3 times!

I cut my hair once while I was studying in Spain. I still had a ton of straight ends though, but I just couldn't deal with the straight hair anymore. I also got a professional hair cut when I got back to Charlotte, NC, but I didn't like the style so I went to the salon again two days later. It looks like 3 times a charm! :)
