Is "natural" a state of being? I pose this question as a lot of women seem to transition more than just their hair when coming back to their natural texture. As a Naturalista do you feel that who you are has become anew due to the changes in your hairstyle?
I know when I rocked a weave, I felt like this inner diva emerged as soon as the final sew-in stich was made. Now that I've come back to my natural hair, I almost feel like a rebirth of self. I feel more aware not only the self within but with the world around me. I feel more creative, more sure of myself, more comfortable with who I am and who I want to become.
