It’s been a while since I had my open hair because of the three months I had my faux locs. I have missed flaunting my natural hair as much as I did last year and to be honest, the relationship between my hair and I has been a struggle this year. Being a natural hair blogger, there is the presumption that we don’t have hair struggles but the truth is that this journey is full of ups and downs as well. My hair has been tangling so much, not to mention how challenging it was to detangle after undoing faux locs. But I am taking time to treat it and show it some love by deep conditioning and trimming the ends and with time I hope for better results. While dealing with these struggles, I was selected to take part in the All Natural Project run by Heenie Photography.
This project seeks to showcase the beauty that lies within us as women of colour. I was hesitant about participating in it with the state of my hair but I thought of how we put so much pressure on ourselves even when things are not as bad as we think. We tend to see the negative In ourselves before giving ourselves props for the far we have come.
I therefore set my mind to be a part of this beautiful project. I did flat twists the previous night and as soon as I was glammed up by Achy, I unravelled the flat twists and was ready to shoot. Now I look at the pics and I know my hair isn’t as baaaad as I thought it was. What do you guys think? Let me know on the comment section?
By the way, I have a new facial routine that has greatly improved my face and I can’t wait to share with you guys next week. Please subscribe to get an update.??
I hope that this post will inspire you to appreciate where you are at the moment. It may not be as bad as you think. It might actually teach you something greater. Take time to go through what you go through. Love yourself. Pamper yourself. You are beautiful.
And if I asked you to name all the things you love, how long will it take you to mention yourself?
Love and light.???
