Natural Hair Texture

8 Comments

I got my first relaxer when I was twelve-years-old. I was so excited to be be able to jump in the pool and have my hair lay flat instead puffing up like cotton candy!  I continued to get relaxers until I was 36-years-old.  So, what made me go natural?  There were a number of reasons, actually.  For one, I woke up and realized that I did not have to have straight hair to be beautiful.  I realized that I, like many other girls, had been brainwashed into thinking my tight curls were ugly or “nappy.”  Nappy was not a good thing.  If your hair was “nappy,” folks said you had “bad hair.”  Yes… as if hair could be disobedient. Can you imagine how such a description can damage one’s self-esteem?  Well, I am not going to go into great detail with this at the moment because it is a much more complicated subject than most would imagine.  This was just my brief introduction to a subject I will elaborate on later, Natural Hair.  There will be several photos in this category, and hopefully I can get some great quotes from some very close friends of mine who also “went natural.” Next time I post in this category, I will give my second reason for going natural.  I will include a few photos tonight : )

  2. Yes, “HAIRVOLUTION” indeed!! Well thanks for thinking of me Adetokunbohr; I am thrilled that Shawn is writing about natural hair. There is much to be said about the topic and Shawn, I am eager to get your perspective and insight on all the “stuff” that is relative to natural hair. Thank you for showing me much love in this post; I am touched. 🙂 Girl, you are one of the women who inspired me to embrace my natural curls. Continue to inspire us with more of your great posts.

  3. You have pretty hair….and yo don’t need to fret.
    Even though my are silky straight and jet black and even when I try to make them curly, like yours, they don’t stay like that for half an hour. They look pretty on you, which means that they are pretty!
