Hi all back again blogging. I know more ladies are going natural, but I'm still surprised at how different they look. It seems people are no longer adhering to strict rules as to how they should wear their hair in the workplace. Below are some "Before and After" pictures of ladies I never thought would consider going natural.
|Adun Before with Heidi Braids|
Adun didn't transition, she chopped everything off (very brave) and doesn't intend to grow her hair any time soon.
Adun is a PhD Candidate in Tourism and Travel
|Adun - Grade 2 all round|
Almost a year on, its still short and she trims every three to four weeks. http://www.adunokupe.com/
Morenike a pharmacist and fashion designer based in Canada.
|Roughly 18months of growth|
|Occasion Hair for naturals|
A blowout is when the hair is washed and blowdried, and tonged to give soft curls. http://arewa.ca/store/ to view Morenike's designs
This has got to be one of my favourites
|Mamito's Short Haircut|
|Protective Style for Mamito's headshot|
Mamito has a hectic schedule and works in the film industry
She didn't cut her hair short, but transitioned all the way through
|A puff after|
|Nkem's occasion Hair|
Nkem is a writer
Awesome stuff at http://thewordsmythe.wordpress.com/
|Its amazing how much Nkem's features stand out when she has less hair, and a tighter curl pattern, I can't wait to see what else she does with her hair|
|Fonzy with a quiff|
|Buzz cut also known as "Low cut"(Nigerian Lingo)|
|Few months of growth|
|Protective Styling (Full fringe weave)|
|Even more growth|

This has to be the biggest shock, Dele's her hair is never messy and she experiments with different styles.
This is her real hair, nice cut :-)
Short curly bob
|Hair Extensions - Lovely loose curls|
|No transitioning - Cut off everything|
Dele is the only person I know that has gone natural, dyed it various colours, braided it, had cornrows, Ghana braids, twists and twist outs, the list is endless....ALL in the SPACE of 12 months and still managed to have a considerable amount of growth and maintain it.
|Approximately a year of growth|
The fabulous Jay with a short relaxed pixie cut
|Longer graduated bob|
Jay is a vintage fashion enthusiast
No transitioning, Jay stopped relaxing for 2 months, then did a Big Chop
|6 months of growth|
