Growing up it was not okay not to be processed in some way, relaxer, straightening comb, jerry curl, texturizer, etc. After that it was not okay to be without extensions, braids, weaves and wigs. It is okay to be relaxed, it is okay to wear weaves, it is okay to wear wigs and it is also okay to wear your own hair.  Natural hair is okay and beautiful. 

I have learned so much and in learning to care and maintain my hair I find that I am also more aware of my health, the food that I eat, the need for exercise and vitamins. After all what comes out the body is based on what goes in. My eyes opened to the world that I'd stepped into where I saw all kinds of natural hair styles, natural women, natural hair care products, natural hair care books and more.

So after much consideration, this group, the Natural Hair Group of NJ & NY, was started for other naturals in NJ, NY and the Tri-State area to meet, share and support

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
