A Proud Moment
I am so proud of my sixteen year old niece!! She decided to BC (big chop) and grow her natural hair back out. She went natural when she was younger, but decided to go back to the relaxer when she went to middle school. Now realizing that the relaxer was not worth it, she has come back to her natural hair. I am so proud of her decision. It takes a lot to be a teen, who has decided to go natural, go against what society has taught us; long straight hair is the way to be, no matter the cost. When we finished chopping the remaining dead hair off, she felt so relieved. I encourage those who are thinking about going natural to just go for it. It will be one of the best decision you will make in your life. I especially encourage teens to start accepting the way that God has created them. Too many are falling by the way, believing lies society has spoon fed us.
