For those of you who are just starting to follow me and don’t know…. I used to wear hair extensions for years. I loved my weave! As of November 2015 my modeling agency encouraged me to start wearing my natural hair. Although I was extremely reluctant, taking this leap of faith, forced me to embrace my natural hair for the very first time. This months issue of Essence Magazine is so special to me because for the very first time in my life I have been published with my natural hair, in its natural state. That’s right, no more weave. Although I was a bit nervous to see this issue, I learned to appreciate hair and beauty in all states whether that be curly, straight, extensions, or no extensions. Don’t hide behind makeup or weave, embrace, your natural beauty because although it took me awhile we are all naturally beautiful, just look a little closer. There is definitely nothing wrong with wanting to feel glamorous just know how to love your self both ways.
