~ PLEASE DO NOT REBLOG THIS!~
Growing up, I have always hated my frizzy curly hair. So much so, when I was 13 I went and had a straightener put in my hair. I would blow dry and flat iron my hair EVERY DAY. Today? I still blow dry my hair as straight as I can and just so I can put a curling iron on it to make it “pretty”. There are many reasons why I hate my hair, but I won’t bore you all with those details. I decided at the end of last year, I would do all that I can to build my self-confidence–starting with loving my FULL natural self.
So, here I am. No makeup whatsoever with my curly hair…it has some product in it just to keep the frizz down. No, I’m not super skinny. I’m actually really curvy. Loving my body is a daily struggle–some days I love my body, and other days I have meltdowns when I see myself in the mirror. Gaining self-confidence is not something that comes easy to me, but I want it. Hopefully, I can inspire other girls to strive to do the same.
