So, i think I want to perm my hair. Before I get the “Embrace your hair! But it’s pretty! Girl you better not!” talk, let me explain. I’mma let you finish though. (tehehe).
So I began this natural journey September 2010 because I had already cut my shoulder/shoulderblade relaxed hair into a short cut. My best friend convinced me to go natural so for a while I wore weaves and braids. The true reason was because after maybe a month, I missed my longer hair. I was sad most of the time and felt unattractive. About June 2011 my hair was long enough for me to cut the permed ends off. I did and wore my hair out and weaves occasionally. When I went off to college I started to embrace my hair more and would get a lot of compliments. But I still loved weaves. When my hair is straightened now it’s back at its original length from my relaxed days. But I live in Texas so it get’s puffy when I wear it with weaves. I’ve come to the conclusion that I love weaves and I feel like I am doing this only to satisfy everyone else because everyone says they love it on me or that I have “good hair”. No, I have my own hair and I honestly like kinkier hair. I sometimes think that maybe I’m doing this to fit into society but I LOVE my curls.
So there, maybe I am doing this to please others but I don’t want to disappoint them either.9 notes
