When I first went natural in high school being natural was not as momentous  as it is now. The natural hair movement didn't become popular until a couple of years after I had began my process.  I was nervous in the beginning so I kept it in sew ins to grow it out, because I didn't feel like I could be as pretty with out a lot of hair. It wasn't until I was a sophomore in college, that I actually fell in love with my Afro. Although it took me a long time to love my hair this journey has been so rewarding. So much so that I've dedicated my free time to helping other women going through what I went through, by developing a space for women to learn what I've learned through tutorials and blog posts. As someone who went from not feeling like my hair was pretty to dedicating my time to assisting natural women in finding the beauty in their own hair I can attest to the magic of natural hair.

"I think I became most connected to my hair when I cut it, ironically. I had been growing my hair out for 9 years, but eventually realized that I was only growing it because everyone else wanted me to. My hair became really heavy to me, physically & figuratively, so a couple months ago I cut it all off. Now I'm growing & wearing it on my own terms, & it feels great."

insearch.of 02. A poem by @paperairplanejane
Lets face it I was never right for you my hair too kinky ass too small I always wondered what you saw in me now I know it was nothing at all
you see my hair tells stories Of trials and tribulations it tells stories of bending and never breaking kinky enough to be manipulated into anything dark enough to be hated and soft enough to always run your hands through even if you get caught you want to get caught in my hair always tells stories
Society never really liked my hair's stories the way it always talks so loud and demands to be noticed and calls for your attention but society has never liked anything that gave it competition.

insearch.of Installment 1: "Locking my hair has been the truest test of my patience and the purest humbling experience in my life. This is the most unattractive I've ever felt but the closest I've ever been to myself. As my locs grow, I grow - as a person, a woman, and an entrepreneur. The Different lengths represent and connect me to different phases in my human experience and to me, that's the strongest bond I've ever had with my hair." 1mon

insearch.of My wonderful sister @karmen.300 is curating a series of paintings focused on the sisterhood and struggle of natural hair. The mission is to convey how natural hair binds us to our identity, origins, and together as black women. An image painted by @turnjurell and creative directed by me and Karm will be released every week showing examples of the range in texture, curl pattern, cut, and protective styled natural hair along with a message about that individuals natural hair journey. 1mon
