 "It was a process, and it really was a journey. I use the word journey not lightly because I do feel like my journey of self-perspective could be chronicled through my journey with my hair. The more I embrace my hair naturally as it was, the more freedom I had and the access I had to more different styles. The more I let my hair be what it was, the more it could do anything."
