I understand going natural and doing your big chop can be a HUGE step for some people, but for some other people they just don’t accept the natural look, So people come up with reasons or excuse cards for why they can’t go natural like; “well having a perm or long straight weave is manageable” (despite the health risk of a perm), “my hair is too thick” and my personal pet peeve “I can’t go natural because it’s just NOT me”.
The whole “it’s just NOT me” excuse, LOGICALLY and BIOLOGICALLY speaking is a huge CONTRADICTION and self-hating excuse! Why? Because natural is being how you naturally are or how God made you, meaning accepting your kinks, curls, naps, or whatever you choose to call it. Biologically speaking your hair traits are in your genes, it is in your DNA! So if you have convinced yourself that being natural is not for you then you really need to take a look within yourself to find out what’s really making you believe that.
P.S. I know there may be a few comments saying “it’s just hair”, well if it’s “JUST” hair why are people spending almost 300-400 on average to perm and long weave extension then if it’s “JUST” hair.
