We’ve had to reprioritize in recent years. I of course personally experienced the shift. There was just no way I was going to let my hair hold me back anymore. And to be honest, after you’ve been perming and flat ironing your hair for years, it likely doesn’t look that healthy anyway. But we had to let go of the idea that straight hair was the only way to be beautiful, all the while ignoring our physical health.
I went natural after I started training to live. First I started with the weaves, but quickly realized I had to let that go and allow ALL of my hair to sweat. I didn’t want to steam my hair under a weave. The smell alone let’s you know it’s not a great idea.
It’s been about 6 years since I began my natural journey. I now have a fitness business, and locs! Well at least I started them a little over a month ago. I think if all goes hand in hand. Self-acceptance of our natural beauty and self/care.
