My #NaturalHair Story
I’ve teamed up with the folks at You Be-Natural, to give you a peek into my haircare situation. While I’m being compensated for this post, all opinions are my own.
My hair has never really been at the top of my priority list. I mean, I’m not stepping out looking like whodunit but I’m definitely super low maintenance.
Recently, I’ve had lots of people ask about my hair (cut, color, etc.) So I figured now would be a good time to share with the class.
When I decided to rock my natural hair 8 years ago, it wasn’t for health reasons or because it was trendy… I just didn’t want the hassle of having to straighten my hair in the summertime. Because: lazy.
After a few years of natural hair trials and tribulations, I learned that my hair responds best when I just leave her alone. She’s wild and free and does not like to be tamed honey.
4 years ago I decided to join #TeamShortHair (again, lazy) and it hasn’t been longer than chin length since because I just can’t. As for the color, I started gradually, with a barely visible purple that has evolved into the various shades of purple/pink/fuchsia that I rock these days.
My hair philosophy is simple: If I wanna try something, I do it. If I don’t like it, I can cut it or it will grow out. NBD. #YOLO
