I’ve been walking around my place in only a sports bra all morning. Making breakfast, naked, smoking bowls, naked, reading books, naked.
Just me, naked.
Found an old picture/have to rant. Going au naturale almost 3 years ago was the scariest thing in the world, especially because I didn’t know a damn thing about my kinks, but I knew I wanted to, so…CHOP! In my opinion a black woman’s hair is her crown, the kinks, the naps, the curls, the locs all flow from the tops of our heads creating a masterpiece of wildness, it’s art people! People who don’t have the kinks, naps, curls, and locs do not understand this. They do no understand that society has told us that our wild and nappy hair is not professional or beautiful. They do not understand that society has told us to cover it up and put another persons hair that resembles the straight, long and flowing texture that is not ours. And they do not understand the amount of time spent with harsh chemicals to make our hair straight, and all the hair products to make our hair “grow.” What I do know is that I have never felt more beautiful then I do now with my dread locs, wild and free to do as they please (yes they are alive haha). What I do know is that when I hear the word “nappy” I no longer see it as a put down, but am like “fuck yeah, all day!” My hair is the longest it’s been in my ENTIRE life (it’s only to my shoulders currently), and I couldn’t be happier that I took the journey to return to my roots (no pun intended) and told society to shut the fuck up, my hair, my locs, my crown is beautiful! So whether you’re natural, in transition, or rocking the weave (because that too is an art) just let it be known that you are fabulous. #flashbackfriday #naturalhairmovement #dreadhead #dreads #locs #love #patience #ladies #we #flawless
