“Living a Lye”
What the feck?
Just ran across this quote a few times today reading natural hair blogs, forums, etc.
“I’m tired of living a lye” ; “I was tired of living a lie” ; “Relaxers are a lye”
Seriously though, why does going natural have to be so dramatic?
Did you consider relaxing a lie? I personally don’t understand why that’s a lie. Everyone knew that my stick straight hair was not my natural hair. I mean, I knew, my family knew, my friends knew. Who was I trying to fool? NEWSFLASH: PERMS AREN’T FOOLING ANYONE! I mean really, they never have.
I went natural because I was sick of fighting my hair into something that it’s not…easily manageable. I sacrificed the health of my hair for convenience. Does the desire of convenience make you a liar? Not in my book.
Just my thoughts, take em or leave em.
