One of my close friends called me the other day just to chat and catch up. One of the things we ALWAYS take about is our hair. She's been natural for years now. At the time she went natural I also went natural, but later decided to relax my hair.
Unhappy about my decision at the time, she tried her best to talk me out of it. Before I go any further, let me just say going natural is great, but it's simply not for everybody.
Ok, back to the story… so this particular day we got on the subject of how I was wearing my hair.
Right now I'm wearing a full head sew in weave with none of my hair left out.
“Oh so you're finally off the Creamy Crack! It's about time you snapped out of it!! Girl what's your problem you know you need to be natural!” she said.
I politely said, “Look, for all of the years you've been natural, that's great! I'm so happy for you and excited that you made the choice to go that route. That works for YOU not ME. I like to wear my hair relaxed, going natural is not for me. What I do with MY hair is up to me, so let's leave this subject as it is!”
So what's the moral of the story? Don't let any try to talk you into doing what's best for you! Make your own decisions based on what YOU want to do. I just talked to a girl the other day who's family was upset because she decided to go to Cosmetology School instead of working in the family business.
She was upset, but at the same time proud of herself because she made her own decision to do what made her happy instead of what made her family happy. If braiding hair, weaving hair, or just doing hair period is something you've always wanted to do, like Nike says…”JUST DO IT!”
If you're ready I've got an awesome opportunity for you to get started! I'm doing something really special for back to school!! Next week I'll be sending out a video
with all of the details.
