Twists, tightly curled, Locs, kinky, coils, braids, NATURAL is who we are.
My hair shouldn’t have to “go” mainstream. We shouldn’t have to decide on whether our hair is “too much” or unprofessional in a particular setting.
Mainstream media just need to EMBRACE IT. It’s a lifestyle for us. I’m comfortable in the skin that I’m in. At this stage in my life, I’m not too concerned about what’s more acceptable and I’m not going to conform to what people are “used” to seeing.
Today I’m proud to see that what grows naturally from our scalps is seen as BEAUTIFUL and doesn’t need to be changed.
Our culture doesn’t need to be groomed honey!
