About Me

Sunday, September 16, 2012 Posted by Karen

Thank you so much for visiting my site!

The idea of "My Curly Knots" came to me a few years ago, when I searched for greater understanding of how to take care of my natural hair.

I had been using chemical relaxers consistently since my teen years, and hadn't seen a full head of my natural hair since the age of 15.

Shortly after getting married in 2003, I noticed that my hair was shedding tremendously, and decided to give chemical relaxers a break, so that I could "start all over" again.

7 months later, however, when I saw how full, thick, and healthy my new growth was, I began the adventure of caring for my own natural hair.

I am a social scientist by nature, and have been fascinated with how my natural hair has been received by those in both my personal and professional circles.

So far, it has been a hit!

I was most concerned with how it would be received at work, since I'd had no examples of African-American women with natural hair to follow.

The journey to learning more about my hair, and finding hairstyles suitable for both work and play has been a joyous adventure.

As such, I've chosen to share what I've discovered here, with you, at mycurlyknots.com.

I hope you learn a lot while visiting, and share what you've learned with others.

And of course, feel free to leave some pearls of wisdom for me, too!

Happy Hair Lovin'...
