I meet a lot of women who say "I wish I could do that." You can! I would love to see more beautiful black women embrace their natural strands. Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not an anti-straight strand sista, but I would love to see more women viewing straight hair as a styling option and not as a required beauty treatment. Personally, I haven't worn my hair straight in 5 years and I have no future plans of straightening it. I am . . . Learning to Love Me Naturally.

It's rare for me to go anywhere without someone commenting on my hair or having women ask questions about what products I use and pulling out a piece of paper to take notes or a cell phone to google the products I use. I stopped in a store one day to grab something quickly. I was walking really fast because I was in a hurry and this lady literally ran after me with her shopping cart and two kids to ask me about my hair. I forgot why I was rushing that day, but after seeing the trouble she went through to get to me, what I was rushing for no longer seemed important. After talking to her, she thanked me for being so nice and her two kids hugged me. I then turned around to get the items I came in the store for and there was a lady on my other side patiently waiting to also ask me questions about my hair. That's when I realized that I was Turning Heads and Changing Minds . . .
