Hey Divas,
I've been a member of Spark for about 3 wks and I'm glad to say I've lost some weight but I'm more excited about finding this group. Now some sistas that can relate, because as most of us know.. we are so connected to our hair. I know I am. I locked 3 yrs ago this September as a birthday present to myself and it is one of the single most important decisions I ever made for myself. I'm never going back!

Hi! I've been a member for a minute...I started transitioning after my last relaxer in Jan(?). I have only been doing twist outs for a week, but I have been roller setting it. Let see...oh yes! I'm a single mom with two sets of twins! My oldest daughter says she loves the fact my hair looks like hers! I love it too...

Hey FLY NAPPY DIVA'S,

I'm new here, but have been wearing my hair natural for more than 10 years. I dyed my hair a lighter color and started to see breakage. I decided to wear braids and allow the chemically treated hair to grow out. Icould do anything with those braids the only problem was that I'd get new growth as soon as I'd get them. In two months I'd have to get it redone. I continued to wear the braids until maybe three years ago when I decided that I wanted to start to save for a house. What a ton of money I saved. I now wear it nappy and only straighten it maybe a few times a year for a change. Once I go and cut the grass it's a wrap, but everyone is so amazed that my hair has grown so long. The only reason I get it straightened is to get my ends clipped. Those split ends can be deadly.

If you look on my sparkpage, that's a picture of my hair straightened.



Greater Is She That Is In Me!

Hello, I just found this team and I am glad that I did. I have been natural since October, 2009. It has been a journey that I have enjoyed with some frustration. Glad to have some people to talk to about what and how to do!

Just what I've been hoping for. I was wondering if there was a group of us that are either natural or transitioning (like myself) on Spark. A friend from my page joined and I decided to be a copycat.
This will be my third time releasing myself from chemical slavery..LOL..because it seems the only way I will actually work up a real sweat is to not worry about how I will have to tame my hair in the morning. Plus I just love my kinky hair.

Hello,

Glad that I found this site, I went natural a few weeks ago and happy to have found the site. I am sure I will find a lot of information here.

Hi all. Just joined the team today.

I love the creamy crack but I am trying to give it up. I've been without a perm for 3-4 months now and last night I took down my twist and was prepared to grab up the perm but found the strength to put it down and say no. But whew I realized I needed some HELP!

My partner is a white guy and my daughter is mixed so she'll never need to touch a relaxer, or curling irons with hair like hers. I get a serious kick out of sending him to the hair store in MN before coming home from work. Lol. He has been sent a few time so knows to get the right stuff.

He doesn't understand all the natural stuff. He thinks I look great with the braids and with the twist that I do (I do my own hair THANK GOODNESS) but I think he is worried about the more afrocentric styles. Im not worried, a low cut blouse and he'll forget any complaints he might've had :-P I am not above distraction methods on the boyfriend!

I am a little worried about my edges. They seem to be having a tough time coming in good. Still a little on the thin side.

Hello, My name is Kamice. I am here to lose weight and met some new friends in the process. I went natural once by just shaving my head but my husband had a fit. 3 years later I am at it again. Did a chop, then got some micro's, not really feeling them...I am going to cut it down the the new growth and pray he dont leave me...lol.

Hi ND's My name is Kellie. I finally faced the fact that I was more dedicated to my health than to making sure my flat iron stayed neat! I haven't had a relaxer since Oct. of 09 -- my hair is long and still has some texture to it when it's wet & product is on it (another thread), and unless I do the big chop I have a bit of a ways to go before the relaxer is all gone. So.... I'm here to lose weight and sport a new hair style too!

Hi ladies. my name is Jae and I'm back at Spark after being away for most of 2009 due to relationship drama and some depression at the anniversary of my Mom's passing. 2008 and 2009 were some hard years for me. Thankfully I didn't gain back ALL the weight but I have my work cut out for me. I'm determined to get to my goal no matter what happens in my private life, whatever it is, it's not worth losing my health and well-being!

I've been natural forever, the last time I had a perm my sons were small and now they're in their 20's! I am loc'd and loving it. So I'm glad to be here and hope to make this journey a totally positive one.

Blessings! Jae

I'm making excellent progress! Can't wait to wear some of the great clothes in my closet!

Hey all! I am new to Nappy Divas and so glad I found this group. My last relaxer was 5/08 and my bc (not really a bc) was 8/09. After awhile I decided that all the energy I put into growing my natural hair and keeping it healthy I could put into losing weight. So here I am on my way to losing at least 60 pounds.
