Road To Natural Entry 6: Fallon

Hey Darling! Being natural was one of the best decisions that I have ever made in my life. There is nothing like looking in the mirror to see a head full of curls and waves and kink. Combine that with a pair of beautifully gigantic eyes and you cannot go wrong. I went natural in May of 2006 and it has been a wonderful and enlightening journey that I would not trade for any other experience. The truth is that way before I went natural, I always admired natural women because they seemed carefree, strong, and not immune to the stereotypical mindsets of beauty.

But unlike the women I admired I was too scared to look like that. I’ve realized that people are scared to be themselves sometimes because of the standards that society sets. I was one of them. I actually went natural on accident my senior year in college. I moved away to do an internship in another city, did not have my sister/stylist extraordinaire to do my hair, and one day after frustrations with my hair I decided that I would become natural! I hit up the library and read books that fed my mind about black hair and kinks/curls and equipped myself with knowledge about MY hair. I transitioned for 10 months and decided to do the big chop on May 2006 with 3 inches of new growth and I have never looked back.
