A Little About Me

I’m Michelle and I’ve been embracing my natural hair for well over 20 years. It’s been a journey for sure!

I am also married and a special needs mom who is easily overwhelmed and easily distracted. My life is challenging but I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. I’m always just learning to do things better so that I can be a good mom. Especially, now that my son is an adult.

I grew up in New York City and always suffered with low self esteem. My feet were too big and I have a gap in my teeth (hence, I rarely smile with teeth showing) which I don’t like.

The only thing I really ever liked about myself was my hair. I liked it relaxed but now I love it natural.

This blog is devoted to the knowledge I’ve gained on caring for fine natural hair with styling and length retention in mind. It’s also an open view of how as a Christian, I’m living my life by faith in God’s Word, including caring for my hair.

God is my Source (He has to be!) and if you are still reading this, you are either curious and/or want access to some of the information and tips that have helped me to to finally see Him as Source. Either way is all good. I’m here to serve 🙂

A Little About My Fine Natural Hair

I’ve had relaxed hair and blonde colored hair. Of course, it all broke off in spite of how much I deep conditioned. That’s when I realized I can’t do what the ladies who have heftier weight of hair can do.

Now I’m a fine hair curly girl with completely unprocessed hair.  I may appear to have a lot of hairs on my head (not thick density but medium), most of those hairs are very thin and when separated, many of them look invisible.

Also, as of 2022, I’m embracing my gray hair and am on a new journey transition to gray. Pray for me because this one is hard!

Lastly, I very rarely wear my hair in its natural state. I find that keeping my curls stretched helps me to retain a lot more length. I will however rock my wash and go’s in the summer!

Me in a Nutshell:

  • I have fine natural hair that’s very curly with tons of shrinkage but I’ve been quite successful at length retention.
  • I’m in charge of caring for a young man with special needs and being his mom is my greatest accomplishment.
  • I’m married and reside just outside of New York City
  • Last, but certainly not least, I love Jesus for saving me from a life of practicing sin.
