Earlier this year, I lost my job. During the year, I penned my first book, took my first girls' trip with my best-friend, walked away from the most amazing man and a relationship of five years, a friendship of even more and moved into my mom's place. But I'm not here to talk about that...just yet.
You're probably asking yourself, why the change of heart. Maintaining natural hair hasn't gotten any easier right? Welp! Apart from natural hair just being so much better? Eventually, I want to have children and if I have daughters, I want them to see the natural beauty in their mother starting with her hair (because that's one of the first physical things they'll see right?) I want my children to understand that it's not mandatory or a requirement to conform to what society portrays or deems normal. That it's ok to love the skin they're in. To be their own natural beautiful selves and if they decided that after a while they want to have their hair relaxed, I will support the idea knowing that I have done my best to instil in them to be themselves, to think for themselves and not to worry about what everyone else is doing.
With that being said, I'm participating in a hair challenge over at
Vett's blog called #NoHeatDecember.Twitter with the hash-tag #NoHeatDecember as I try to style my braids. Unfortunately I don't have an Instagram account for you to follow. Thanks Blackberry! If you want to join the challenge, check out Vett over at Real College Student of Atlanta and she will add your name to the list.
Hope you dolls had a fabulous weekend.
