Coiled Inspiration

In recent years within the black community I’ve noticed a change in our women. Many have been embracing the way Yahweh (GOD) has made them. I also have come to know that sporting hair type 4C instead of 1B or 3A doesn’t make anyone’s beauty less perfect. Rocking my hair has definitely added some “umph” to my walk and undeniably gave me a self-esteem boost.

I don’t care to know if anyone else likes it. I don’t care to know if it may make me look dated. My coiled kinks actually make my eyes sparkle. They make my smile brighter. My coiled kinks has taught me self acceptance. So I ask, “Isn’t that one of the end goals in life?” Correct me if I am wrong.

I have been inspired by so many beautiful women that I’ve seen. In the grocery store buying eggs, on Youtube doing hair tutorials, in my family, on television, social media… sheeesh. I must admit that the politics of black hair has caught my attention. I am forever grateful to these random people who unknowingly changed the attitude I have toward myself.

Now readers, because I am here proclaiming my love for my natural hair does not mean that I will never wear a wig. I would be cheating myself! That’s the beauty of being a women… I can change hair as I please. However, what I will NOT BE doing is adding any chemical straighteners to my hair. And once my hair grows to a certain length I will not be able to wear a wig… and that’s perfectly fine with me šŸ™‚ .
