It’s just hair… yet millions of dollars, hours ,and debates are devoted to black women’s hair. When I was a child my mom, grandma, aunts and cousins washed, twisted ,braided and did my do. When my mom was a child my grandma did her do, and when she was dying my mom returned the favor. Today I do my hair and my mother’s hair, It’s not just hair, it brings us together.
I am priveleged to be competing for the title of Miss Nappturality 2008. I look at this contest as more of a challenge for myself versus against another natural sister. This contest represents more than just a title, opportunity for more exposure, and challenges in natural hair care. It sheds a light on the much needed attention that we as natural sisters don’t get from the mainstream beauty industry.
I aspire to be an influence on young girls struggling with their crown and glory, or women who are looking for assurance in embarking on the path to nappturality. Welcome to my journey, I hope you will find it inspiring. Blessings onto you. Happy Growing!
