Once upon a time (approximately 2 yrs and 4 months ago) I had relaxed hair. I was happy with it but missed my natural kinky hair which I had kept natural for most of my life. I particularly missed the body and wildness of it.....the Diana Ross-ness of it as I like to put it.
So one day on a whim I cut my relaxed hair off.
It was brave and liberating and scary! After all, I was so used to longer tresses. Longer straight tresses. Now what!
I learned to rock a small fro.....then a bigger one.
I rocked it textured and blown out sometimes. And then I fell in love with my hair all over again.
I learned how to integrate scarves and other accessories to celebrate the uniqueness of my hair. Most of all I learned to take care of my hair better. Myself. Not the salon.
And my hair grew.
And hopefully it keeps growing like it did when I was younger.
I look forward to wearing my natural hair gracefully as I grow older. I will wear it in all of it's curly kinky glory and enjoy every minute of it.
