Hair Story by a skimmer

As a skimmer (black swimmer) to be exact it’s hard to keep processed hair. Why process it in the first place? To make it “straight” and more “manageable”. For only 2 years I had processed hair but after not much thought on whether I wanted to give up skimming for my hair, or “my hair for skimming”, I chose to give up my hair because skimming is my passion and I have learnt that my natural thick brownish black curly kinky hair is the best hair I would ever have. I don’t think I would “straighten” it again. I love my natural curls and I will continue to be the best skimmer with them.
