How much do you really love your hair?

If you had a choice, would you trade your hair for someone elses's? Do you sometimes wish your curls could just hang down a little more? Do you perhaps think that your hair could be really beautiful if it was just another 6 inches longer?

My firm belief is that natural hair is intrinsically beautiful. Why do I think this? Frankly because I believe that the way I was born is the way I am meant to be. I don't need to change, I only need to maintain, love and care.

This little speech is all dedicated to get you to run over to Happy Girl Hair where Katie has written the most heartfelt and beautiful post on natural hair acceptance that I have ever seen on any blog anywhere. This is no exaggeration, to call it brilliant is really not sufficient. Take ten minutes of your time today and read every line. It is well thought through and thorough. Think about it, discuss it, urge everyone you know to read it. Here it is - The Beauty Standard: Fairy Tale Hair
