As a fashionista, I have put my natural kinky/coily hair through so much to keep up with the hair trends over the years. I have gone through colouring, perms, blow-outs, relaxers, weaves, locks and a short natural look.
I have always said 'I'm not my hair' but am I really NOT? I had a rude awakening when I decided to cut my hair very very short. I felt naked without my natural mane and remy weave...the western civilization and our African society in the 21st century is putting so much pressure on how we look. We are defined by how we look and most of the time natural doesn't cut it.
