“I cut my hair a few months ago, but I haven’t permed it in a year. I had to cut it because it was breaking off really bad. I dyed it different colors nonstop. One day it was red then it was black. After the black, I forgot that I dyed it red and bleached it, so it went pink. It’s a long story, but I had to start loving my natural hair and cutting it gave me a new beginning.
When I started wearing my natural hair, I realized that I really like this — that this is me. At first it was weird because everyone was used to seeing me with long weave, nearly 40 inches down to my calf. The Brazilian hair was always the big thing, but after awhile you get tired of hair. As a makeup artist for Accessmatized, everyone loves my natural hair. I really began to like keeping it simple when I started working with Takia because she keeps it mellow, so it makes you feel as though you can tone it down a bit.”
