I sit here on my day off debating if I should take out my weave I had in for a loooooong time. I come up with excuses.
Oh, I need more products to keep the curls.
It is just so much easier to leave in now.
I don’t feel like going to the salon.
But, really, is that it?
Why do I not want my curls? What am I attached to? Is it just the beauty of straight hair that is in fashion and just not interested in the “natural look”. Or am I worried about the looks I may get since I always wear it straight.
Then until I read this, I realized that I still attached to what society defines as beauty. My whole interpretation of beauty within and self-realization has work to do. I never knew I felt this way.
