I was 13 years old and I was what they called tender headed. My mother got tired of me crying whenever someone would come near me with a comb and a brush so she took me to the hair salon and let me get my first relaxer. During that time it was all about how straight you could get your hair. So we all put relaxers in our hair to mimic a European style and to be accepted in society as well as make our hair more manageable. I can’t tell you how many times I got chemical burns because I wanted to withstand the pain so my hair could be straighter than it was the previous time. I know It sound really stupid now but back then it was everything to have the straightest hair.
Now things are much different and now natural hair is the way to go. Women everywhere are ditching their relaxers and trading them for coconut oil and deep conditioners. As a photographer I get the opportunity to work with some amazing people and now the natural hair community is on my list! It took me a while but a few years ago I decided to embrace my hair in its natural state and stop putting the creamy crack in my hair. Now my goal is healthy hair and I acheived It.

Personally, I think that the beautiful curls that grow from my head is something to celebrate and be proud of. So when I’m detangling my hair, I always think about my daughter and how I never want her to feel a chemical burn because her hair is beautiful just the way it is.
