Now I understand that your outward appearance does not define who you are as a person. Your weaves are an accessory or added bonus to your lifestyle. I get it. I also know that the outside you is only a mirror reflection of the inside you.
Just remember that your skin and hair are an extension from your past. I always say, the sun itself has kissed the black race. Making our brown skin the fountain of youth, you know black don't crack. The Sun has shown love to our hair by shining it's waves of energy on our ancestors. So don't be deceived by the illusions set in place. We unknowingly realize that our kinks, coils, and curls, which are all uniquely different with every strand, has given us a head of thick and full hair that every woman wants to attain.
Your brown skin and kinky hair was genetically selected for you and depicts your heritage of Afrakah. In America we are constantly reminded that black history began with slavery. Without thought, we don't dare imagine the empires of Kush, Mali, Nubia, Ancient Ghana, and countless others that we descended from. Instead you learn of Queen Elizabeth, Alexander the Great, Napolean, Christopher Columbus, and the "founding fathers" of America to name a few.
Good Hair is the hair you love and nurture no matter the texture or look. Don't fall victim to the conformed thoughts of our society. Our perception of ourselves create the reality we see. I am so proud to be living in this era where we say it loud, Black is beautiful! Kinky~curly hair that was viewed as untamed and crazy is being appreciated and loved by our self. We are not waiting on the okay from main stream media, our parents, or views of others. We are loving our hair. Without words we are saying, I am black, I am proud, and I appreciate who I am~ naturally.
