Why No Barbie Dolls with Natural Hair? A Woman Helps Break the Mold
Are you natural? If so, how long have you been natural? What made you decide to rock your natural hair?
I am very proud to say that I do have natural hair. I have long loc’s that I love and adore. I have been natural for about quite a while and loving every moment of it. I used to perm my hair religiously and wear weaves. None of that ever made me happy. I always felt like I was lying to myself. The cost of maintaining perms and weaves is crazy. Not to mention all the damage I was doing to my scalp and hair. It got to be too much for me, to the point where I was asking myself – who am I doing this for? Because I no longer enjoyed (I don’t think I ever did) using chemicals and fake hair to try and make myself look like someone else’s version of beauty. So I finally said enough is enough! I had always loved how women and men looked with loc’s – so I just decide one day it was time to loc my hair. And I never looked back.
