10. What advice would you give to others who wanted to go natural or live a more natural based lifestyle?
I just want ALL my Sistas to know, wearing your hair natural is not a commitment to being a judgemental social outcast with limited financial/romantic prospects anymore than wearing your hair straight makes you a vapid video whore begging for validation from white people. You are you! I AM passionate about women at very least exploring their natural hair because a lot of us had the choice (relaxed hair as the standard of beauty) made for us before we even knew there was a choice to be made or a standard to meet. It's kind of like having a big booty;we have something uniquely beautiful in our various curl patterns, and ,since you got it, why not flaunt it?
