My mom first relaxed my hair when I was 10 yrs old because she thought it was too time consuming . Ever since that moment, I wanted my natural hair texture back because I always loved my curls. A month before turning 27 yrs old, I am now 100% natural and flaunting my TWA (teeny weeny afro). This a journey that has made me one step closer to being more confident in myself, and feeling more like a strong black women.
Being a light-skin black woman, I always felt as if I wasn’t accepted into the black community. Many family members, friends, and strangers have always made me feel that way. Due to my experiences, I always wanted to be dark-skin, and have always admired dark-skin women. With that said, I have appreciated my shade of black as well as all other shades of black.
My black is definitely beautiful, and I wonder if there are other light-skin black women who felt or feels the way I felt.
