Going natural: How I fell in love with my nappy hair!

Titi and and Miko, creators of Miss Jessie's hair products(great hair care)!

By Briana Booker

Lately Fromgirltogirl readers have been asking fabulous questions on how to enrichen their minds, bodies and souls! Yesterday I got a great question from a fierce woman of the name Christal Louison, a recent graduate of American University in Washington DC.

Her question was "How bad is blowing out my natural hair locks?"

My answer is not bad at all! With a low heat setting on the hair dryer, grape seed oil, a good comb, and some fabulous hair cream conditioning....your hair will be fierce and soft! I personally love rocking my afro! It is beautiful because it is so unique.

When I went Natural with my hair.

For readers who do not know, I went natural about two years ago. Before then, I was a ritual relaxer chick. And yes, I loved the hair styles I got with relaxers but I was worried about the continous chemicals being used in my hair. My hair was becoming very dry and breaking off easily. I just could not keep up with the maintenance required for relaxed hair.

I was afraid of what I would look like with natural locks. I was afraid to cut my long hair off. Then a month after my 21st birthday, I decided to cut my hair off and rock out my natural curly hair!

No my hair does not define me as a woman, but it does reflect my moods, how I am taking care of myself, and sometimes it is a symbolic message. For me, I felt liberalized through breaking away from my fears of being defined by someone else's opinion of beauty.

Growing up I was defined as a black girl( I am Black. I am Filipina. I am cuban.), I never heard anyone say black and nappy was beautiful until my second year of college.

In fact recently, I have realized that mainstream America is now promoting colored women( not just black women,but women of color in general) as beautiful. It makes me feel this country is slightly improving in allowing people define who they are as opposed to forcing on a title for people. It is inspiring!

And I just loved seeing on my Facebook timeline that Alexis Devance, creator of Araminta Rose fashion designs, ( check out her blog and fashion designs  )  said "Thinking of having a natural hair party, would you come ?"

It made me glow inside. We are beautiful. It is a movement. Cherish yourself and others will learn to cherish you as well!

And the growth continues...

p.s- We will be discussing great hair care for all ethnicities in the upcoming weeks! Let us be firece and fabulous together!
