Hi, I’m Cocoa!
And welcome to GIRL vs NATURE.
My hair journey began way back in 2010. I made the decision to go natural because my hair was completely damaged as a result of excessive chemical treatments, terrible hair care habits and my impeccable talent for overly stressing about everything!
In 2017, I took my hair journey to the next level and dared locs. I wasn’t really sure how things would turn out but I think it’s going great so far. In fact, I think it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life. But, if you want to know how my hair feels about it, on the other hand, you have to read my diaries.
Now I want to help you on your loc journey.
I believe that our relationship with our hair should be a healthy one. Not opposed to nature but working together with it. It took me a while to understand this concept so at the beginning of my journey it was a real struggle. But it does not have to be that way at all.
Your natural journey doesn’t have to be a struggle.
On GIRL vs NATURE, I create content to motivate, inspire and help you achieve your healthiest loc journey. So please feel free to explore my site and discover the goodness nature has in store for your locs.
