The series was so inspiring I decided to take a look back at my own hair journey. One thing I'm so blessed to have is a mother who taught me to appreciate my curls and refused to allow me to wear a relaxer even though I begged and begged. She saved me from a lot of trauma and for that I'm grateful.
Take a look at some of my favorite looks throughout the years. From curls to silk presses long to short braids and even a wig or two. I just love the versatility of hair!
