After shaving my head for St. Baldrick's, a non-profit that raises money for childhood cancer research, I struggled with what to do. I found that it was a chance for me to go natural.
I went natural because I thought that it was what i was suppose to do. As a black woman I felt like I should like the hair that I was born with. I was out to change the world's perspective on beauty...
But I dont like mt hair... I have a tiny afro and I don't like looking in the mirror. I have had two bfs since then and both of them were always on me about getting my hair straightened. When I got my hair straightened, my hair kept falling out even though I took great care of it.And now, guys dont find me attractive because of my afro!
So I am between a rock and a hard place... get my hair straightened and risk it slowly falling out or be natural and not really like the way I look.
I dont know what to do! And people keep telling me that when it gets longer I can do more with it but I have been growing my hair for a year and it is only a few inches long... Its going to take an eternity for it to grow natural. When straightened it is much longer than it looks...
