Natural or Straight I’m still ME!

Let it go people! Live and let live. To each his/her own.

I am sooooo tired of it. Live and let live. Whatever your style, texture, process, products or length – keep your hair healthy and do you!  Celebrate the beauty in our differences and not tear one another down. Don’t waste your judgment on me because like India.Arie I know that there is more to me Under my Brim than my hair.
