I am not my hair.
I'm always wearing #hats. I've had a lifelong love affair with them. It's actually gotten me in trouble. I got my #locks started by @kalifalondon and was wearing a #hat today because my #hair was frizzy. While driving, I saw a woman walking down the street with one long lock hanging down to the ground. That's when it hit me. It doesn't matter.
I locked my hair so I could let it be and do what it does. Why am I covering up? For who? For what? I took off my hat and walked around with my #curly little #starterlocs for the rest of the day.
My hat is also off now as I write this. My #grandma would #smile and then probably ask what I'm going to do with my hair. Lolll. 😝 My hair has been through so much with me. I've neglected it, obsessed over it, hid & cut it & so much more.
I've always spent so much time worrying about my hair and what it was doing. Today, I decided to let my hair be & I realized what @indiaarie had been telling us all along. I am not my hair. Long. Short. Curly. Straight. Braided. Weaved or locked. I am the soul that lives within. You are too. 💚
On another note, a lot of these lock products are full of chemicals. This to me is worse than other products being filled with chemicals. I say this because lock products remain in your hair longer. This means that chemical is in your hair and on your scalp, marinating.
Don't support companies that knowingly fill your products with irritants. Research ingredients and opt for natural hair products. Have you tried our all natural, The Only Rinse & Go Hair Creme? Check it out by clicking here!
I'm going to look for natural loc options to try. You know what's next. :p
P.S. this in no way means I'll be giving up my hats. Love themmmm 😝👩🏾🌾 #frommothersgarden #blackgirlsblog #blackwoman #blackwomen 🍃💚🍃
