Hey, everyone! Cynthia here, and I’m excited to share my journey of transformation with you. Join me as I unveil my new look and the story behind it.
A year and a half ago, I was a happy mom and wife, enjoying life to the fullest. However, tragedy struck when I lost my next-door neighbor to a severe stroke. Witnessing his suffering left me traumatized and filled with anxiety.
I began to fear for my own health, worrying that I might suffer a similar fate. Seeking reassurance, I consulted a doctor who, unfortunately, misdiagnosed me with high blood pressure, leading to unnecessary medication.
Frustrated with the confusion, I decided to seek a second opinion. The new doctor correctly diagnosed me with severe stress and anxiety, setting me on the path to healing and recovery.
But the most significant step in my healing journey was a personal one: I decided to change my look. For the first time in fourteen years, I bravely cut my natural hair. The results were astonishing—I not only looked great but felt rejuvenated.
Below is my current picture. This is now how I look
I’m eager to hear your thoughts! Please leave your comments below. Rate my new look compared to my previous picture, and take a guess at my age. One of the best things about my new look is that I no longer need to use relaxers on my hair.
Say Goodbye to Relaxers
Relaxer, a chemical substance used to straighten and soften hair, is commonly used by individuals with African hair textures. African hair is known for being thick, wooly, kinky, and strong.
This is what natural African hair looks like. Below are some of the pictures of the relaxers sold in the Nigeria market
Unfortunately, relaxers can cause damage to the hair, lead to edge loss, and even burn the scalp. In some cases, it results in hair loss.
That’s why many African women are choosing to embrace low-cut hairstyles and enhance them with various colors, eliminating the need for harmful chemical products.
I will no longer be using these products for now. Also, these chemical products damage the hair and destroy the edges. Oftentimes people’s scalpers get burnt by these products. Sometimes it results in hair loss.
So that is why many women in Africa stick to low cut And spice it up a little bit by dyeing or tinting them with different colors. see the pictures below.
