Yes! Thanks for writing this!

I went natural when I was 16, back in 2006. That choice was based on convenience as I had no one around to relax my hair and I wanted to try something new.

Since that was in the very, very early stages of the movement, I’ve watched people go natural for the sake of the movement rather than a personal choice.

I’ve also felt inadequate and self-conscious for not having a routine and barely combing my hair because I just don’t have the time with 2 kids.

I’m still natural but I hope it stops being a movement and goes back to just a personal choice.
