    I wish what i know now that I did not know years ago about the beauty of natural hair. Because as women of color we were conditioned when younger that our hair was ugly and not beautiful unless pressed, relaxed or weaved. That is why I decided to become a natural hair blogger informing and sharing helpful content as others, to embrace our God blessed natural crown. Its beautiful and it is actual not that hard to care, style and maintain once you know how. Your hair is beautiful in the picture.
