@FroGirlGinny Shares Her Liberating Hair Story

Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 8.30.52 PMWhen/Why did you decide to go natural?

I decided to return to my natural hair because I didn’t feel myself. Relaxing my hair was guarding me from expressing my personality as I was changing myself to fit in. I returned when I was still a teenager so it was one of the wisest choices I made as I was still young so I could grow through it.

How long have you been natural & is it what you expected?

I have been embracing my natural hair for 5 years now! I thought the moment I big chopped my ringlets would return, but I didn’t expect that my confidence would grow and I would learn to accept my flaws from cutting my hair. It has been a journey where I reflect and smile at who I was on the first day I cut my hair and who I am now. Those two people are very different.

I’m at the stage of being happy and free with my natural hair. My hair is a crazy, curl and big ‘fro that I love. Hmm, it is very soft and fluffy. Big chop all the way. It was a liberating experience.

Finding the right products, especially because I am from London we didn’t have as much access to the really popular brands so I began using mousse and hairspray as I had no idea what I was doing.

Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 8.31.29 PMDid you ever feel like you had to compensate for being natural?

I felt the happiest I have ever been, I didn’t have to change anything about myself because it was already creating a statement on its own.

What are some words of wisdom/advice/ or inspiration you have for any one that may be considering following in your foot steps in to the natural world?

Embracing your natural hair! Embrace your beauty and who you are. The rest will follow. Be you, BeYoutiful.
