My Natural State
by Darla Rudakubana


I had my Big Chop almost a year &
half  ago.
I did it myself, one sleepless Jozi night. I had been thinking about
going natural for a while but never got the guts to do it. It was when Aisha
got her cut that I finally decided get rid of my relaxed bits, almost a week
later. I don’t regret it.

    I chopped off my relaxed hair about 3 weeks ago. And everybody was like why?? Personally, I'm loving my new look and I don't regret it!!

    Aisha! I miss my dreads – but it had to be done.
    I can't wait for my baby afro to become an unruly teenager again haha!!
