"My friends were all brainwashed by social media years ago that straight hair is beautiful. But ever since I transitioned they saw the beauty in being your self. This helped me grow and them to see people differently and love them for who they are."
"I didn't make the big chop, since my hair grows so fast. I transitioned by getting it cornrowed and clipping my hair every time I took it down to wash it and have it put back in cornrows I also wore a fake Afro puff to complete my styles. Over time, I've learned that I can handle it better naturally. It has been 8 years and I am loving my hair."
"I decided to bleach and straighten my hair as much as possible just to look like everyone else, not realizing that being different is the best thing EVER! Now I embrace it and I'm glad I did because I wouldn't be where I am now!"
"My hair had enough after the first relaxer, but it took me 9 years to finally realize what I was doing. I felt like it was time for me to make peace with myself and change my perception of beauty."
