Today I head back to California after spending the past few days in my home state of Minnesota. Generally speaking, on a trip back home one spends a significant amount of time “rediscovering their roots”. However, this trip was less about my roots, and more about my 7-year-old sister Skya’s roots; literally the natural roots of her hair. One of my main objectives of this trip home was to apply my knowledge gained through my year+ of Natural Selection to help my sister [and mom] learn to care for Skya’s natural hair.
It’s been a very interesting process for me to not only to work with hair that is not my own, but also to remember the extremes of joy and pain that come along with being a young girl and having to have your hair done. In the end, what really matters, though, is that Skya is super happy with her natural hair!
Here’s a little video I put together about our natural journey together!
