Before going to high school I always wanted to relax my hair at my mums disapproval. My mum eventually went on vacation and my aunt relaxed my hair without my mum’s approval but to my delight. After 2 years of relaxed hair & realising my hair wasn’t growing at the rate I expected, I decided to go back natural. I am no longer insecure about the texture & length of my hair. I am confident in what it says about my heritage & ethnicity.
