Style Diaries: Tia Jonay 1


Hi! My name is Tia and I currently live in Texas. I transitioned for 18 months and my last relaxer was January 11, 2010. I have been natural since July 24, 2011.

I initially began my hair journey wanting to learn more about growing long and healthy relaxed hair after my relaxed hair started breaking. While I was looking up how to take care of my hair, I learned more about natural hair and the great experiences others had with their natural hair. I saw the range of hairstyles that I could do with natural hair and its versatility, as well as how healthy and thick natural hair was. After reading lots of information on youtube, forums and blogs about natural hair, I was convinced that that was what I wanted to do.

What really helped with my natural hair journey was focusing on what my hair and what I liked rather than what others were saying or doing. I read a lot about natural hair on blogs, forums and youtube and saw how great natural hair could be. I didn’t see that many other natural women around me when I initially became natural, so I found positive inspiration on the internet.

Patience is key and not everyone’s natural hair is the same as others. It will take a lot of patience to figure out which styles, products and routines will work for your hair. It definitely isn’t an easy path, but I think the return is well worth the effort.
