For the Days Your Fro is Not Cooperating

What Imperfections?

So your hair is not cooperating today? Your hair didn't turn out exactly as planned? It's still beautiful! Allow me to provide another prospective about your impending bad hair day. The beauty about beauty is that it’s subjective. Indeed, this is something that many of us take for granted very often when it comes to hair. Many of us spend hours trying to craft the perfect style every time and allowing room for imperfections seems crazy. Primping, and panicking to ensure perfect ringlets, smooth edges, and immaculate wash n go's.  Beauty is in the frizzy imperfections, of natural, kinky hair. Even that crazy bushy, gravity defying hair is perfect. Perch a flower in it, and keep it moving!

Next time your hair is giving you a hard time, just let it be. Add a simple head band, or a vibrant flower to top it off.  You will love the clumped curls, slight frizz and
ease of it all. Sometimes, I try to gather my hair into perfectly equal sections for perfectly equally over-sized twists, and it  can be daunting. One of the great things about curly hair is that even when we don’t have hair that comes out as exact as we had intended, no one else around ever seems to notice. Healthy Hair always looks good!
“Shrinkage Who?”
Even if you are obsessing,  someone, somewhere is admiring your entire look.  Work it! To them your hair is fabulous. When you throw "perfection" to the wind, you may end up with the hair that strangers stop to tell you they wish they could have themselves. Now get out the mirror, and go flaunt the perfectly imperfect beauty!
Just a couple of simple ingredients and a positive attitude about your hair can get you far. Messy hair is sexy. Imperfect curls, updos, braids and frizz is the real beauty of it all. Look in the mirror and tell yourself 
 You are already everything you need to be. You are, in fact, Everything.”
 Breathe it all in.....
