I stopped relaxing my hair in 2003. For two years before that, I texturized, which is a light relaxer to loosen your curl pattern. Once day I decided that I’d be ok with whatever hair grew out of my head. It’s been a journey of experimentation, soul-searching, and prayer! You really get to know yourself when you get to know your hair.
Sure, you’ll see me in phonytails and weaves when I want a change or to give my hair a break. I consider these tools and accessories. My favorite is the nappy, kinky, natural stuff underneath. Life began when I realized this: there is nothing wrong with my hair, and nothing about it needs to be ‘fixed’.
