How did others respond to YOUR decision to go natural? Anyone thinking were crazy? Anyone join you and go natural with you? Who were your biggest supporters?
My fiance is Filipino and his first wife was relaxed and I was relaxed for the first two years of our relationship. He had no clue that BC’d … I hid under a sew-in for months. When my hair started to reach nearly shoulder length I let the… cat out of the bag. He was so supportive and loved the curliness of my hair. My mom was not negative but not supportive… she believes that we didn’t inherit the “good Cuban and Dominican hair” but instead the “black hair”. Add to that I’m half Nigerian she was always telling me how tough that Nigerian hair is! Now she understands that it’s so important to care for your hair no matter what the texture. My sister went natural accidentally (longer story lol) but now she wants a texturize her hair because she’s unhappy with it’s texture :/ whatever! I’m happy!!!
My mother, grandmother and 1 of my brothers are not supportive. They feel I look “better” with straight hair because that is the kind of hair they(mom/grandmother) have naturally. My mother doesn’t believe that it looks good at all and says she doesn’t know where I got my hair from. I have a mixture of both my parents hair and I’m proud of it! My Dad hasn’t said anything negative about, but he hasn’t said anything positive either. No one has decided to follow me..yet..I hope..lol My girls friends are VERY supportive and encouraging. I love them sooo much for it! My Boo LOVES it and so do I!!!
