|My hair after 9 months of Transitioning;
Relaxed ends and lots of new growth
|My hair the day after the Big Chop|
Many of my friends and family are amused when I tell them about my YouTube videos. Most of the time I don’t even want them to watch because I feel a little silly. All I talk about is hair so I figure they won’t really get why I do them anyway. As for my YouTube family, there is still so much I want to share.
My first video was just to show others how I transitioned from Relaxed to Natural Hair. I was so happy to see all of the positive comments and decided to do update videos to show my progress. With each video, I received questions which ended up leading to another episode.
The first time I saw that I had subscribers on my YouTube channel I was shocked. I didn’t really think that I had much more to offer than any other Natural on YouTube. This is what sort of kept me going though. Ever since those first two subbies, I’ve been posting more and more content on my hair journey. I checked to see how many I was up to today and saw that I have a little over 1400 subscribers! I know that there are “Hair Gurus” out there who have waaay more but I am blown away by that number. These are all people who for one reason or another genuinely would like to see more content from lil’ ole me!
I wish that I could post more often but my dinosaur of a computer is a real drag when it comes to video editing. Hopefully I’ll be able to push out a couple of vids here soon to feed the masses. In the meantime, I just hope that my place in YouTubia is a help to someone out there who is looking for more information on how to go natural.

get. Most importantly, I rock it in public so that others can see that big hair is beautiful and it’s here to stay.
I’m excited to have a new blog where I can share what I know (and am still learning) about Natural Hair. I have been Natural for over a year now and transitioned for 9 mos before actually doing the Big Chop.
Why I started a Blog
I have a YouTube channel called mitchellzee where I post videos on how I do my own naturally curly/ kinky hair. Editing video is pretty time consuming so I’ll be sharing some things here that I may not have time to put into video format.
I really like all things hair and makeup. I plan on doing some product reviews on items that I have discovered that work for me. I’m also a mom…a little bit of a Domestic Diva if you will so I’ll also be sharing some of what I’ve learned over the years raising my three sons (we call them the “Curly Hair Crew”).
Stayed tuned for info on hair, beauty, shopping, food, and just plain tips on what I do to make it all work.
