Thankful for Your Natural Self

 

In honor of the Thanksgiving holiday, we recently asked our curly community to fill in the blank:

 

"I’m thankful for my hair just the way it is because ____"

 

These expressions of thanks for our natural selves send an amazing message, and we would like to share a few of the responses with you.

 

“I'm thankful for my hair just the way it is because it allowed me so much growth. The process of going natural taught me a great deal about myself. While becoming reacquainted with my natural hair, I realized I was actually getting to know who I really am. I'll forever be thankful for the journey of returning to natural!” ~ ‪Chassi J. Groover‪
 
“‪‪I'm thankful for my hair just the way it is because it's unique to me and it inspires others in so many positive ways. I love how it sparks conversation and openness. Being YOU can never be wrong! :-)” ~ Tonja Witherspoon Maultsby
 
“I'm thankful for my hair just the way it is because it challenges me to take time for myself as I learn to take care of it. Life always seem to go by so fast and taking care of myself and my 4C hair with Q-Redew daily slows me down just enough to love myself even more.” ~‪ Tanya Bartlett‪
 
‪I'm thankful for my hair just the way it is because there isn't another one in the world like it! It's unique just like me and it's a great example to my daughter that we are all made beautifully in our own way. God hand made every kinky hair on my head and if I don't love it first, who else will?” ~ Nivona Holmes
 
“I’m thankful for my hair just the way it is because it is mine, not anyone else's. When I look in the mirror, the reflection I see is all me, nothing artificial. What you see is who I am. I have never been into my hair before and now that I think about it, it probably was because it was not my natural hair, with the heat and the chemicals. Now I take the time to care for my hair in its natural state and listen to how it reacts to the different products that I try on it.” ~ ‪Nadine Connor‪
 
“I'm thankful for my hair just the way it is because I have gotten so many more compliments since I embraced my curls and it has only increased my confidence and self-esteem!” ~‪ Meredith Marr‪
 
“I am thankful for my hair just the way it is because I have learned just how versatile it really is in its natural state. With patience, imagination and YouTube, there are no limits....” ~ ‪Janice Carter-Fortune‪
 
“I'm thankful for my hair just the way it is because it has fallen out twice because of lupus complications and it always grows back better, I'm rocking the silver now at 55 and loving it.” ~ ‪Terry Wagner‪
 
“I'm thankful to my hair just the way it is because it was the texture given to me by my ancestors and it taught me the importance of loving myself. Growing up I always felt inadequate and it wasn't until stopping the harsh chemicals did I start to accept myself for who I am and love the person I'm becoming. Big poofy hair and all.” ~ ‪Carol Spigner‪

 

Happy Thanksgiving from Q-Redew
