Iv been natural for over a year now. Though I don’t really take peoples opinions of me seriously. I have noticed, That my natural hair look seems to attract a lot of people to me. I got a lot of ‘you’re beautiful’ with relaxed hair. But, now that I’m natural, it seems to be ‘you’re beautiful’ soul-wise.
It seems like something about natural hair shows so much truth in a woman that can’t be compared to others or hidden.
It’s lovely being approached and having people talk to you a certain way because your hair is different from other girls. It’s like they feel a kind of warmth and soul in you because you wear your real hair with so much confidence and love.
I think that’s beautiful. Natural hair makes me feel a certain way. I can’t compare or explain it.
I feel like myself. I feel love for myself. There’s something about embracing your real self in all it’s form, which shouts ‘I AM ME for ME’.
Each day, I’m like ‘God why didn’t I go natural ages ago’, the amount of growth my hair has given me as a human being can’t be explained.
It’s just hair. But there is a blessing in embracing yourself to the fullest and thanking God for it. Tell me I am not alone.
