Before I went natural, some people tried to discourage me.  They told me I didn’t have the “right texture” for natural hair. They told me that natural hair could never be glamorous..But what they didn’t realize was that, in my mind I had already decided that ANY texture of natural hair, is the RIGHT texture..I decided that I was going to make my own beauty standards, because I have the right to do that. I realized that all of these “beauty standards” are opinions, made by humans, just like me. And their opinions just get passed on from generation to generation, until they are finally accepted as “fact.”

But you see, the tricky part is, they’re really not facts, they are still what they were to begin with, OPINIONS. And this extends beyond just hair.  There is no perfect body shape, weight, height, bra size, etc. I’ve really learned that in life, you are as great as you want to be, or you are whatever you allow society to trick you into believing you are. For example, if every time you turn on the television, you only see women with a certain body type receiving praise, please know, that it is not written in stone that a woman must have that body type in order to be considered beautiful. These are opinions. And your opinion is just as important as any other opinion, no matter how many people truly believe that their opinions are “facts” because society says so.

🍃HERBALIFE HAIR🍃

Today I took my Herbalife journey a bit further as i dived into our herbal aloe hair products and I must say my hair feels super refreshed!! At first I was super skeptical of using the shampoo because shampoos usually dries it out and super shrinks my hair. But as soon as I applied the shampoo my hair had all of the bounce in the world, and all of the hang time even after I washed it all out! Then I slabbed on the conditioner…gives a quick thank you….let me just tell you, I could actually put a comb through my hair multiple times without it getting caught or broken (I’ve broken a lot of combs in my day do to the lusciousness of my curl pattern) mind you I am super tender headed, but this shampoo and conditioner dynamic duo did this fro gooooood!
