'I am not my hair, I am not this skin, I am a soul that lives within' - India Arie
I've been natural now for 3years - It's been one heck of a journey - I've been thru the hiding phase (i.e hiding under weaves and braids), the curl/length obsession phase , the product junkie phase, the 'I want to go back to relaxer' phase, the my 'hair is too ugly & tough phase' to' I am not my hair' phase, to connecting with my soul (kinda deep ish) but yes I really did connect with my soul - who would've thought natural hair would take me there eh:)
Anyhoo -today I'm simply comfortable and extremely happy with my hair - I no longer need to force it to do what it wasn't created to do - some days it looks uber fab and others not - -some days it is begging for water and others it is just right,.....in short I'm still learning and loving and embracing my God given tresses and it's utter uniqueness.
