Throughout this blogging experience, I’ve shared natural hair history, modern day challenges, and the perspectives of women across the nation. One thing that I have yet to do, however, is share my own personal journey with natural hair. This post will share my top three reasons why I’ve chosen to be natural.
Reason Three: Costs Savings
Like many things in life, the almighty dollar did play a role in my decision to go natural. Prior to going natural, I would spend an average of 100 dollars a month on salon visits. As a college student, this was far from feasible. My natural hair is much more affordable and most of the styles I wear last longer than styles that I would get at the salon. Fortunately, I’ve been able to learn how to braid and twist my own hair because these styles tend to be fairly expensive if you have to go to a professional.
