Free of chemicals, glue and weaves.
Spreading the truth that natural is great.
And loving the hair I’ve been taught to hate
At nineteen, I’ve had E V E R Y hairstyle you have E V E R seen. I was weaved up, glued up, hair down to my crack… I was Beyonce in my head, lol. I was also delusional. I thought my weave looked great, I loved it and it loved me. Then I decided I was tired of long hair. I chopped it off, then I was Kelly Rowland. I went shorter and I was compared to Fantasia.
As I was going through my own phases, I saw my Aunt grow her hair out natural. She dyed it a beautiful copper color… it was thick and curly, and she did soooo much with it. As my hair grew out, I played with the option of giving up my creamy hair crack (thats what my mom and I call it) and growing my own little fro. I decided I was #teamNatural, only to cover it up with a quick weave… a shame, I know. My natural hair grew like that for a month, until last Saturday. I had had enough, I was tired of trapping my scalp in all that sticky stuff and paying for the hair of other people when I thought my own curls were just as beautiful. I walked out of the hair store with a new attitude & a container of Miss Jessie’s. I decided that the world would just have to deal with my kinks, and learn to love them, because thats what I came with. Insecurities are gone, and I’ve been surprised at the positive comments I’ve received. It’s amazing how far a little confidence can go! I L O V E my fro, and I K N O W my fro loves me. I don’t have to be Beyonce to be beautiful. I can just be me. I’m taking this thing one curl at a time and I’m loving every minute of it !
