In today's society many black women are taught to perm their hair to make it straight. Natural hair is not something that is generally embraced in the American culture. There are not a lot of pictures that showcase natural hair as being beautiful. Regardless of whether you decide to relax, straighten or go natural, you can feel gorgeous both inside and out. Feeling comfortable in your own skin is the key to happiness. This is not just a message towards black women, but also to EVERY woman. Each of us has a natural characteristic about ourselves that we would like to change. If you desire to change it, change it, if not then it is fine. JUST BE YOU!
