I remember when I thought going natural meant less work for me. I wear more protective styling as a natural than I did when I had a relaxer. Sew-ins, wigs, braids and faux locs have been a part of the hair regimen for so long that even I forgot what my real hair looked like. I've had so much of it for so long and I'm not complaining, I just wish I had more time to really show it off. I'm too busy "protecting it". Lbvs!
