Giving you this one today because for damn sure, our hair matters. More specifically, our relationship with our hair matters to us. And it speaks to more than just style; it speaks to elements of identity. And whether we agree on the relevance of natural hair in the greater society in terms of labels and misrepresentations—one thing’s for sure:
When I stopped viewing my hair as a problem to fix, and started recognizing the real problems (the lies I had grown to believe about the validity of my natural hair), I felt radical. And beautiful. And valid. Yep, just through something as “shallow” as hair.
That poem is an excerpt from my Manifesto. If you dig the poem, ORDER THE BOOK TODAY.
