Confessions of a Hair Stylist Daughter
“Ouch! Momma, that hurt!”
“There’s no hair right there!” referring to the “kichin” or fine hair along my neck line. My mom was a stylist, determined to straighten every hair strand on my elementary school head. As a kid, I hated that straightening or hot comb, but I must admit, I got alot of compliments on my hair. Could it be that at an early age, I equated beauty with pain? Well, I don’t know about that ,but one thing for sure, the teen Tammy could not take it any more and that’s when things got more complicated than my future adult self imaged.
After months of pleading with my Mom to get a relaxer, she finally succumbed to my request. Although I got and had a relaxer for years, something never felt right. Even the most sensitive relaxers, were not friendly to my scalp.
I’ve been natural for over 14 years and glad to say, my Mom is as well. The transition was not easy, but I made it over and haven’t looked back.
Looking forward to sharing my natural hair journey and a ton of resources from the best in the business.
