I never had the luxury of “going natural”. Growing in New Testament Church of God believing household there was no real choice. It could only be natural. I’m grown now. Free to make my decision I wish concerning my hair. But I keep it natural. I’ll keep it that way. It’s the pride and the struggle of it all that keeps me keeping it this way. It’s the pride and the struggle of it all that keep me from letting anyone touch it. There’s too much history in this coils. I keep them sacred.
