A Goddess's Hair Story

9 years ago

<span style="font-weight: bold;font-size:85%;"><span style="font-family:arial;">I do have relaxed hair, but I am going to transition eventually. I've always been fascinated with natural hair. The versatility, beauty and funkiness of the style--a style once deemed "taboo" as opposed to innately individual. Candace sent me this email and it inspired me so much because I personally can relate.
I don't know very many people would would support my decision to go natural (I'm not even sure if I know many people who would <span style="font-style: italic;">care</span>), especially since I know my own hair texture (transitioned before and I stretch for about 3-6 months between touch-ups) might not go over too well with some folks. (Keeping it real, I am <span style="font-style: italic;">AM</span> a nappy-headed ho... i guess.)
But, this story was so cute and touched base with so many of the inhibitors that keep many black women from wearing their hair they way it (to be frank)</span> <span style="font-family:arial;">should</span> <span style="font-family:arial;">look. I have no qualms against relaxed hair (hello! I am chemically-treated myself!) but, lets be honest... I don't think God intended black women to be born with relaxed hair or else the market would produce relaxers for newborns.
But, I hope you all enjoy this little tidbit as much as I did. I will feature advice from her more often so look out for that!</span></span>read more
