Why I Didn't Feel Confident With My Natural Hair it's true blog

I never really understood the going natural hype that was going on a few years ago. All I saw was girls doing the ''big chop'' and starting natural hair journey. I found them brave yet I didn't want to be part of the whole ''going natural crew''. But after a while I got tired of all those wigs, extensions, straightening etc. I got fed up with using chemicals in my hair just to prevent any afro texture to reveal itself. I can't even remember when I had natural hair actually. The idea of me walking around with an afro frightened me. Why? Because I thought I wouldn't feel pretty. I thought I wouldn't be able to embrace it and feel confident enough. I thought my hair texture was not pretty. It's much prettier to have long wavy textured hair I thought. You look more appealing that way. Thank God I got a reality check...
In February I decided I wanted to go natural because I simply had enough with covering up my own hair. Even when I did the big chop, I did not feel a 100% confident. I thought the length was way too short for me to feel comfortable. At some point I just got over myself and decided I might just rock this, cause this hair is my hair and this is how it looks like. It ain't going no where. I'm not saying I will never wear extensions cause I'm a person I love to be a chameleon when it comes to hair styles but I've learned to love and embrace this hairstyle too. A hairstyle that is closest to me.. my natural afro.
