Change in My Hair Goals
|This image is stunning, right? This is my dream hair shape and length.|
Remember how I said I wanted waist length hair, when stretched, ultimately? Now I'm not so sure that I want that much hair anymore. I started thinking and that's a lot of hair! I think I wanted it so much in the beginning b/c I wanted to prove something; that Black women could grow beautiful and long hair. I now know Black women can grow our hair as long as any other race rather our hair is in its natural state or chemically straightened. So, I feel like it's not my duty to prove this. Lol. I do want to continue to inspire but I feel that I should be able to do that without striving to be the natural hair Rapunzel.
I think I'd be happy maintaining my hair MBL, mid-back length when stretched. That would put me at about shoulder length kurly/koily. I think that's more than enough hair for me. This is my new goal.
Have your hair goals changed since you first went natural?
