Short Natural Hair Rocks
I won’t go so far as to call myself a natural hair guru, but I am definitely along for a the ride of a true natural hair journey. Now that I’ve actually gone ahead and cut my hair, I can honestly say that in order to truly love the hair with which you were born, you must must love it from the root.
I say this because I’ve been natural for a VERY long time. We’re talking over 15 years (I wrote about it in this post HERE.) So you would think that within all that time I would have learned to love my hair as it is. But that ain’t so!
Since I never cut off my relaxed hair, but rather transitioned to natural hair keeping my length all the while, I never really learned about my hair. Instead, when I did wear it in it’s natural state I was consumed with showing off length. As many of us know, tightly curled hair shrinks and shrinks, especially if you have 4C curls. So even when my hair was almost waist lenth when straught, it was easily chin length when wet. I kid you not! So I was ALWAYS manipulating the hair with methods and products to elongate it. And you know what happened? My hair hated it, and started snapping off EVERY which way in protest.
And now, I’m here. Short. Natural. Fierce. And LOVING myself in a way I never thought possible. I get excited to do my hair in the morning. I’m not buying new products everyday. And what’s more, my curls are shiny, and bouncy and well, beautiful every day of the week, even on rainy days!
If you are considering taking the plunge and joining team natural, I encourage you to cut, not transition. The experience of having short natural hair is one you won’t soon forget. BTW, The lipstck I’m wearing is the Nars Audacious Lipstivk in the color “Angela.” Buy yours HERE. Click HERE for my complete review of Nars Audacious Lipstick
