I’m Michelle and I am a fine natural hair chick doing my best to live my life by faith in God’s Word.
I struggled with self esteem issues from the time I was a teenager. I wanted long beautiful hair like my Latino and Caucausian sisters. It just seemed like it was not meant to be.
As I’ve grown, older I realize that God is concerned about everything that concerns me. That’s why this blog is being devoted to not only the knowledge I’ve gained on caring for fine natural hair with styling and length retention in mind. This blog is an open view of how I’m living every aspect of my life by faith in God’s Word. I will share my challenges and my triumphs.
God is my Source and if you are still reading this, you are either curious or perhaps you 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
About My Fine Natural Hair
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.
I’ve been natural for over 10 years (I don’t recall the exact date. I just know that after reading the book, Thinning Edges by Cathy Howse, I was afraid a relaxer would eventually burn out my hair. I began my natural journey all those years ago.
I prefer to wear my hair in it’s naturally curly state 99.9% of the time. This is the head of hair that God gave me and daily I keep that in mind so that I can care for it to the best of my ability. That includes the products I use and the practices I’ve adopted for hair care. You”ll find me also sharing product reviews and recommendations for fine natural hair.
More specifically on my hair type, it’s classified predominantly as type 3C but the hair typing system isn’t that accurate. Everyone has more than one type of hair on their head so if you want to get REAL specific, I’m overall a type 3C but then I have a nice sprinkle of type 4A in my crown and my nape and sides are probably closer to a type 3A/B.
