Dear Newly Natural Me, Don't shave your head bald. I know it hurts for family to be so constantly disparaging of your choice to go natural, but your hair is not the problem.

I dream of a world that respects all mankind…
Although that which I seek, I may never find.
Without hatred or intolerance; we simply let each other be.
While we might not understand, we just agree to disagree.
Walking side by side, hand in hand, that’s not what I’d expect…
Just walking through a peaceful world with a mutual respect.
A world devoid of judgement, but not devoid of sin.
If you, too, seek a world as such, you must start your search within.

I should know. I never saw any need to wrap my hair with anything. It seemed so extra. Until one night I went to bed on a clean pillow, and the next morning I woke to a horror scene. Broken hairs everywhere. Not just one or two, but all over my pillow case.
That sent me straight to DEFCON 1. I promptly cut up an old shirt and sewed it into a bandana, as if my survival depended on it. By the time I went natural, I was not playing around. Got that mid-sleep sixth sense to tug my wrap back on when it slips off, because these hairs…

Dear Newly Natural Me, So, it's just dawned on you it will be years before you have what's generally considered to be long hair. You're stuck with a TWA for who knows how long. Now you're binging YouTube videos on how to style short hair--flowers, bows, hoop earrings. None of that is your style. Sponge... Continue Reading →
