"Loving your hair is loving yourself," says Dr. Jackie Copeland-Carson, one of the subjects in the documentary Hair Stories, directed by master hair braider and filmmaker Yvette Smalls.
I believe she's right. That's why I was so happy to hear that my dear friend and sister Celestine (a.k.a. Celeste) decided to let her hair exist in its natural state.
Here she is celebrating 16 months of "going natural" -- Isn't she lovely? Congratulations sister and may you continue to keep on loving yourself.
