My mom relaxed my hair at a verrrry early age because it was “too thick, long, and difficult to deal with”. I believed that lie ever since. Finally, after decades of relaxing and damaging my hair (that nice thick hair was stringy and limp), I decided enough was enough. Not only was I scared of the damage the heavy chemicals did to my scalp (as I was now getting severe burns with each relaxer), but I was ready to embrace ME, just how our Creator beautifully created me. I chopped the remaining bits of relaxed hair last year. What have I learned? How much I love MY own hair, just as it naturally is. Also that it’s all about retraining yourself…our hair isn’t THAT difficult to deal with, when we do what works for us. Join me on my hair journey as I continue to learn that.
