What and/or who inspired you to express your natural hair?

I actually went natural about 13 years ago then I started having my hair thermal pressed. I believe it was March 2010 I saw De Johnson at a Dallas Black Dance event in Dallas and others with natural textured styles and I was so inspired to go fully natural. I stop going to my hairstylist every two weeks and decided to transition to natural hair. When they say transitioning to natural hair is a journey, they really mean it. I made so many mistakes at first and many times wanted to go back to straight hair, but everytime I felt like that I watch YouTube videos focusing on natural textured hair and then I would come to my senses. I read several books that focus on the care of natural hair which helped me tremedously. They say you should never say never, but I will NEVER go back to thermal or chemically relaxed hair EVER!. I like the saying "why do you try to fit in, when you are born to stand out"
