I've been natural my whole life, but it wasn't until recently that I began to fully embrace my hair in it's natural state. I'm coming around on the one year anniversary of giving up being a slave to my flat iron and straightening my hair every other week ( flashback to when I began my journey here. ) While I've lost some length due to my color change, I've learned what works/ doesn't work for my hair, gained more defined curls and fallen in love with the effortless beauty that is my golden "crown."
It feels good to be completely comfortable in my skin.
I'm now in the process of attempting new ways to wear my hair in this state. Anyone who knows me knows I bore easily ( I'm surprised I haven't taken a bottle of blue black dye to the head by now, but stay tuned ) and I'm excited to try twist outs, Bantu knots and various other ways to style my 'fro.
If anyone has any natural hair sites that they'd like to recommend, leave them in a comment below.
( SIDE NOTE: I couldn't wait for Spring to pull out this beautiful floral kimono - one of my favorite trends for the coming season. )
