I told my mother that I was going to let my hair dead and she really didnt knowwhat they were,so I showed her some pics and explained that it would take a while and that my hair would be messy for a while.My precious 83 year old mother just smiled and said if that is what you want do it. How cool was that ? She actually liked the pics that I showed her.

Good for you. It is empowering to stop care what others think about you. They not only help with this in the physical sense, but locks can also help you stop caring about how people see your actions
I am only a few weeks in, but already I feel changes in myself. They're not fully complete butI am growing and Ican feel it. Definitely a confidence booster. For I was always very particular about how I wanted my hair to look. I wanted it to be perfect and straight and lay exactly in the right spots. I no longer care about that and its been a huge relief. With that being said, since I no longer have to take that extra time to "make myself look nice" I'm enjoying the smaller things in life. I thought I was before but I feel a whole new side to it now. For example, instead of taking time to use three different products in my hair in the shower, I can stand there, feel the relaxing warm water running through my hair and on my body. Taking my time showering has somehow just made me see how you can REALLY appreciate the smallest things in life. That to me is so important. Love love love this post! Was gona post my shower scenario earlier but found this:)
