If I hadn’t done it because I wanted to, I would have probably heeded their advice and kept relaxing my hair, but I knew what I wanted and nothing was going to change my mind.
My path has also included assisting other 4c people in seeing the beauty in their hair. A straight line does not exist in any journey. There will be ups and downs, but I am certain that if you are on that trip because you want to be there, you will be dedicated and get through the hard times. For me, going natural was tough, emotional but well worth it.
What are some misconceptions about 4c hair?
Oh my God, where do I start? There are so many lol!
Many individuals believe that 4c hair does not frequently grow long or look professional. So much so that, as soon as your hair reaches a particular length, people begin to doubt whether it’s truly 4c natural.
The first reason people believe their 4c hair is dry is because it doesn’t fit their preconceived notion of what moisturized natural hair should look like… which is usually small curls with shine. People also believe 4c hair isn’t versatile. These misconceptions are what I strive to dispel every day with my platform. I try my hardest to come up with solid content that will help my followers.
