Embrace Your Natural Beauty

I have officially made it through 2 weeks of rocking my natural hair in public as well as at work. I must admit that I was extremely nervous to go to work after 7 years without some sort of extensions. The paranoia was all in my head because I have not heard one negative comment nor have I seen anyone stare at me like I was a mad woman. I have been getting compliments from complete strangers and it feel absolutely amazing to have my horn tooted by people I have never seen a day in my life.

I have been wearing my hair in a Bantu knot out since I have taken out my kinky twists. I will start experimenting with different styles and show you my end results as well as relay feedback that I receive from the public. My short cut suits me well and even though I have to twist it every night before bed I would not go back to a relaxer EVER!!!!! As my hair continues to grow I worry about the time it will take to prep my hairstyles once it gets longer. I am so glad that I made this decision and had the courage to flaunt my God-given hair shamelessly.

Until next time =)

      Thank you so much. I am glad that I am not the only one who was a bit anxious about what other people thought of my natural hair. I can’t to wait to see what this journey has in store for me but I have a feeling that there are great things to come. Best of luck with your tresses =)
