A goodbye letter to my straight hair. Yep, I’m really that corny.

Y’all, I think this may be the last post with my straight hair for a while. These photos were taken some time in early February, before my company trip to Cancun. I only know this because of my hairstyle. Since the trip, I’ve been rocking the curls, which have really grown on me over the last month.
You want to know something a little personal? I never felt beautiful when I rocked the natural locks. Personally, I felt messy. Probably because society has brainwashed me to believe that there is only one type of beauty. It’s funny because I try so hard to assure Remy that her curly hair is beautiful and that she looks strong and like a princess, you know, like a Moana!
But something has changed. I no longer look at my curly, frizzy hair and think mess. Now I see it as different, unique, and quirky like my personality! A friend actually told me that the curls suit my personality better, and I couldn’t agree more.
While I’m still working to find products that tame the frizz, moisturize the curls and overall are good to my hair, I’m embracing this journey I’m taking. I’m not promising I won’t go back to the 2-hour process of washing, blowdrying and flat ironing my hair, because I probably will, but I won’t be afraid to stand strong in my curls and know that I am beautiful with either hairstyle.
