My pleasure sister. I truly enjoyed my experience as a natural hair care stylist. It is a very emotional time for women to make this transition. Interesting enough, the major concern for most of our clients who were making a transition from chemical straightening to wearing their natural (people we called "newbies," was Is my husband going to like it?. The women were always concerned about whether or not their husbands or boyfriends would like their hair natural. I remember one woman who came to our shop and she was really emotional about making the change that she kept crying. Because we had to cut out all the perm and dead ends from the hair, she was really afraid of no longer looking attractive and desirable to her husband. A lot of men in this culture closely associate long flowing hair with a woman's beauty.
