About a year ago, I decided to cut out the perm. It wasn't a hard decision to make, but some days were challenging, because I love to change my hairstyles. It was quite a shock at first by how many black men questioned my decision. I was very fortunate to have a man in my life during the transition who told me everyday how much more beautiful I was in my natural state.
I love my hair so much more now. I workout everyday with no worries and I'm free to just be without that daily stress of wrapping, curling, flat ironing, and perming.
So here's to one year natural and many more years to come!
