My sentiments! I appreciated your journey, as many young Black women have had similar experiences with their hair. I went natural a few years ago, and it was so freeing! Learning to love my hair (and stand up for my choice) has been a journey I wish I’d taken decades ago. I love that so many Black women are now loving the hair that grows from their scalps, regardless. It’s a beautiful thing! Self love = the best love.

I write intelligent, unvarnished thoughts on anti-Blackness, racism, politics, Black people, and White Supremacy. |
