It’s no secret that it takes a great amount of courage to be natural. And in my opinion being, going, or ever having been natural is a declaration that deserves applause, especially in today’s society where bundles of hair from Brazil, Malaysia, and Eurasia are in as high of a demand as plastic bags at the grocery store.
So what is the common thread that holds together those that endure the inevitable criticism, lack of understanding, and simple frizz frustration? Well the simple answer is Confidence. And having it can go a long way in not only your natural hair journey, but all future journeys in life.
Gone are the days where naturalistas had no sisters to help them embrace their roots! There are thousands of curly communities that you can lean to for support, from girls that have been through the same very stages that you are at now. Not to mention all the photos that showcase just how beautiful your curls can be which you can find by simply searching a variety of hashtags. Just look at where you are now a magazine totally dedicated to “making natural beautiful,one curl at a time”. Every step of the way you have a total support system, so reach out!
The definition of confidence is…
Full trust; belief in the powers, trustworthiness, or reliability of a person or thing. And who better to trust than yourself? Never get tired of your decision to love your natural self, because it’s a courageous things that not all girls are able to do. So join the club, get curled up, and always keep your confidence on hand.
