Wow! Can you say #Inspired?! Many people don’t connect with their hair, or outer appearance in general, as deeply as the women in this video do. Even for myself – embracing my natural hair sparked my journey of self discovery. With the decision to wear my natural curls as a 19 year old, I had no idea how much that decision would completely change my life.
“Cutting Off My Hair Felt Like I Was Cutting Off That Past Person”
Taking a leap into the journey of self-discovery is not a light-hearted decision. It takes COURAGE to say “I am no longer pretending to be someone YOU want me to be. I choose to figure out who I am and live MY truth.” I find any person who does this as an inspiration because it is seriously one of the hardest things (if not THE hardest thing) to do in life.
“You Can’t Have Your Hair Like This – It’s Too Edgy”
When cultures and social norms control so much of our behaviors and personalities – it’s hard to break away from that security and comfortable place. Fitting in is comfortable. Standing out is hard…but once you see past that fear – you recognize that the happiness and self-love that flows from that is unmatched. It will literally change your life.
“Liberating Myself So Everyone Can Be Free”
Herbal Essences is a brand that wants to encourage and support those of us on a path of self-discovery and those who need courage to take the leap. Creating products that understand and support how transformative hair can be is one of the biggest reasons why I connected with the brand.
Through 2018, I will be partnering with Herbal Essences to not only show you how the products work but also how the hashtag #LetLifeIn can influence so many aspects of your life – hair and beyond.
