Petals of Roses's Journals
I am tired of fighting my hair and its texture. I did this through excessive blow-drying, flat-ironing, combing, brushing and harsh chemical treatments. Now I have decided to step up to the plate, look in the mirror and be happy with the head of hair that I was given.
Ever since my big-chop, my self-esteem and sense of self-acceptance have gone up through the roof! Right after my major hair-cut, I felt free. This was not simply my average hair-cut or trim. This was me looking at my natural appearance for the first time in a while and accepting myself, including my hair once and for all. No more torture sessions and long-winded treatments at the salons. No more hair extensions. No more frustration with how to care for and manage my hair. Those days are over.
Embracing my kinky-curly hair and showing it off to the world is more than a personal take, it is a movement!
