Being Au Natural: Imaginary Fist Pounds and All....
But on to the main point, going and being natural is fly. I think about the times I oscillated between rocking the perm and rocking the curl/kink/natural. I thought about transitioning to natural hair for a good 1-2 years. No joke. Finally deciding (or my hair deciding for me) it was definitely what I wanted to do. Everyday I am soooo happy I finally made the decision to let go of the creamy crack (perm). I'm not saying my life magically got better because I went natural but I am saying that going natural was the best thing for ME! Now, wherever I'm out and one of my natural girls and I spot each other... We give each other "the look" and hand out an imaginary fist pound. (think Pres. Obama and First Lady). And that, my friends, never happened to me when I was on the creamy crack team. Just saying.
