Sooo I’ve wanted to be natural for the longest, but was always scared to cut off my hair. I have this thing, I guess an insecurity, about my hair and when its short I feel like I look like a boy and that I’m not attractive to myself or anyone else. So I’ve always had my permed hair pressed straight, hardly even got curls because they made my hair look shorter.
Well I finally did it!!! I cut the majority of my hair off. It’s definitely a transition, but I think its what I need personally to be more accepting of myself and know that I am beautiful no matter what.
The thing that’s making it harder is negative comments, not from strangers, but from people I call my friends. This is a transition for me too and comments that aren’t constructive aren’t needed or wanted. None of them will see this but I just needed to get it outta my system… Toodles for now.
