Below is an excerpt from a recent Birmingham Natural Beauties newsletter.
“A member of Birmingham Natural Beauties (BNB) posed a question on [the groups] Facebook page.”
She asked “what was your inspiration to go natural?”
Here are a few responses:
“I was inspired by my daughter.”
“It was about promoting a healthier lifestyle.”
“Sheer curiosity and the versatility of natural hair.”
“I was exploring being an African-American woman and embracing everything about my culture.”
“I transitioned to natural because I was diagnosed with a disease. I wanted to try to become as healthy as I could so I could fight as much as I could.”
Often times we share why we went/go natural, but rarely have I heard ladies voice the inspiration behind their decision.
My inspiration to go natural actually came from a friend. She has been natural for years and wears her hair straight the majority of the time. The health of her hair, and her constantly telling me “girl, you don’t need a relaxer” motivated me to give “going natural” a try.
