I tell everyone that I love my natural hair and would never do anything that would permanently alter it. I have been natural pretty much all my life but it wasn’t until my freshman year that I climbed from under a rock and let everyone know. Becoming a proud natural was an accident. Couldn’t get my hair done in Henniker and I finally understood that the heat was killing my hair. I wasn’t as aquainted with the natural hair community as I am now..
Something I have noticed about myself is that everytime something of some importance come along I somehow throw everything I love away and natural anything isn’t good enough. I’m so worried about heat damage but any wedding, graduation, banquet or etc that comes along I’m running for the flat iron. Out of all 52 profile pictures I am natural in not one.
Am I ashamed of my natural hair? No. I am ashamed of my natural hair? No. Never seriously claimed my tracks as my hair and quick to school that person on protective styling. I’m proud of my CBL because Lord knows the journey was not easy.
I have promised myself that I will not straighten my hair for the rest of the year. I have a wedding in September and it got me thinking. My hair is apart of my identity. You never want to be judged on being an African American female but you want to be recognised as one because it does say something. I don’t want to be judged for my natural hair but I don’t want you to look past it. I want you to accept it as apart of me and even if you don’t accept it respect will be the only other option.
For this wedding I will not straighten my hair. It may not be my hair that is shown but I will be the self appreciation person that I have slowly become. Is natural beauty good enough? Hell fucking yea! I was born into this world brown, bare and BEAUTIFUL. I wake up everyday brown bare and BEAUTIFUL. I don’t always need to cover the bags under my eyes because I study hard. Sometimes my hair will go in the direction the wind blows because my ends need a break. Today and here on natural beauty will always be good enough for me. Society can have their views and keep them in their pocket
