I've got really screwy hair. LOVE IT.
I stumbled across “The Ten Natural Hair Commandments” by Laquita Thomas-Banks on Clutch Magazine online and I think it’s lovely. It begins:
For those of us who have made, are in the process of making, or contemplating the great Exodus from chemical hair straighteners…
I – Thou shalt be thankful for the hair that adorns thy head. Your hair is your ‘crown of glory’ treat it as such.
II – Thou shalt not idolize the hair that adorns another’s head. The hair on your head is unique, it’s what makes you you.
III – Thou shalt not take the hair that adorns thy head in vain. Be aware of the damage that chemicals and heat can cause, some of the damage is irreversible.
Enjoy it in its entirety here.
