Greeting..My name is Genevie..I just recently(March) embraced my hair. At the age of 27, I am discovering the truth about the lye(LOL) I have been told by many including my family. I've learned that people wont accept you if you don't first accept yourself! WOW! I was considered by my friends that weave queen. I had never seen my natural hair. Now that Im free to be me..its easy to shrug off other people negative opinion ! LOL
