Don't get me wrong....most of them truly mean well and since they don't get to see you on a regular basis the questions or comments can come spewing out before they've even had a chance to think about it. If this is your first holiday sporting your newly natural hair it can be stressful and intimidating but it can be a symbolic hurdle you need to get over to make this journey work. Not everyone who decides to go natural STAYS NATURAL and I'm afraid to say that sometimes it's our family who change our minds.
Now to the productive part of this post. Whether you are transitioning or did the big chop, working with what you've got takes time and if you are still a little bewildered about what style works for you, make it as simple as possible. If you are truly not comfortable letting it all hang out then sport a wig, braids or even a cute little beanie to block the naysayers in their tracks.
Many of them may not have embraced natural hair but you've got thousands of us out here cheering you on and you are beautiful regardless what any person may say.
Keeping the holidays as stressLESS as one can Naturals,
