I'm in love with the natural movement, I love that is teaching the black women to love her hair, and embrace the uniqueness of our texture, is teaching us to be individuals and to set examples for our little black girls. Is teaching us to stand up to society in a none violent way about their believe that black hair is inferior, and is about time. Besides the fact that we look beautiful with our natural texture hair we are finally recognizing that God does not make any mistakes and he knows that we live in an appearance driven world and although that should not be our main concern we should be grateful that he took his time with us, and praise him because we are fearfully and wonderfully made. On that note I transition for the first time 2 years ago and I was doing great but then I got pregnant and my hair was long, full and healthy and it was hard to just cut it all off, plus I had a high risk pregnancy and all I wanted to do was eat and sleep, doing my hair was becoming an inconvenience so I went back for a perm...I hated it immediately but there is no going back after you perm your hair so I did what I had to do. Then weeks before giving birth I started to panic, thinking that I wont have the time to fix my hair any more, go to the salon and sit under the dryer for hours, so it will be best for me to just cut it, so I did...big mistake because short hair needs way more attention then long hair and my new baby was my number one priority so my hair was completely neglected and the consequences where obvious so I transition again for 3 months and then did the big chop. it was scary but my hair is growing back healthy and strong. I feel like I have overcome the stress and frustration that comes with bad hair days, I have come a long way and through my transition I have learn that in life when things are not working out, the best thing to do is to pray for guidance, restrategize and take action...giving up is not an option.
