More than simply a “new hair-do,” displaying your authentic coils is a new “life-style.” Even if you decide to straighten your coils, unless you “permanently” alter/relax the hair, you are still “dealing” with coily hair.
How does a girl arrive at the decision to stop relaxing her hair? For some, it’s a series of hair misadventures. For others, maybe a desire for a more “organic” and healthy lifestyle. Financial and time issues may influence the decision. Perhaps, just trying something “new” is motivation.
In current American society having textured hair is often associated with “making a statement.” But for many naturally coily girls, going “natural” is a much more internal, emotional, gradual, reconnection to our natural selves. To rediscover what our hair actually feels like, and looks like, without chemicals. To actually *see ourselves* when we look in the mirror. Going natural is an exercise in self acceptance.
Embracing your natural coils is embracing your authentic, natural, organic, coily self.
