So why do I do it? I realized how beautiful our hair is in its virgin state, with the birth of my daughter. So, let’s rewind. I was in college and decided to chop it off and be natural, that didn’t work out...lol But the difference between the time then and when my daughter was born is that I nurtured her hair, and not only that but I knew what to do. World of difference, being knowledgeable in how to care for your kinks and curls. Not only that, but, since I am a lover of all hair, I was getting bored with straight hair, I wanted a change. My hair would be full the first couple of days after flat ironing, after that it became flat and lifeless. It just started to get on my nerves. I found myself cutting my hair to bob length for the fullness it gave me.
What I am saying is that although it is hard work, I am willing to put it in because I love it. It’s like a garden. Gardens are beautiful if there is a gardener to upkeep it. If you don’t want to upkeep it, then don’t get a garden. Not everyone wants to be a gardener, I completely understand this. This is the beauty of hair, it is the only thing on your body that you can change everyday if you like, to fit who you are at the current time. I have embraced this part of me, it can be a little cantankerous, volatile, high maintenance, a headache, unruly, but what woman isn’t...lol My hair describes who I am, at every point in my life. I will embrace it straight or curly, short or long, dyed or regular, whatever mood I am in is the mood my hair will be in; the beauty of life. Don’t let hair define who you are, only you can define it. However you wear your hair, just be sure to treat it with care.
