Ode to Natural Hair =)

Well there won’t be any poem about it, but I’ve been noticing that my hair is starting to improve lately. Such a relief, and a helpful reminder that nothing is permanent.

…except for all of the hair coloring I used to do! Now that I’m beginning to get reintroduced to a fresh new head of hair, I’m realizing that I don’t know if I could ever stomach using hair dye again. But it makes me nervous because I have a feeling (highly likely that it is a silly, unnecessary feeling) that I can’t look good without highlights or color =\. Thanks, by the way, Ravi/Rebekah/Hayley for the incredibly nice comments you’ve left on this blog so far.

So to help me change my mindset, I set out in search of inspiring natural hair.

Aishwarya Rai has pretty, warm hair…but a quick search led me to a picture of her more natural look.

I think I actually prefer it dark!













Shay Mitchell is an actress that’s currently appearing in

“Pretty Little Liars.” She also has great natural hair.

I love the idea of focusing on my health and building new self confidence that way. Restful nights, eating fresh foods, green juices, and smoothies, drinking enough water, meditating, doing yoga, spending time outdoors in nature, exercising, practicing gratitude, getting dressed everyday and believing that I am healthy and happy, focusing on my schoolwork, reading and learning with an open mind, staying loving when I feel bitter, and of course…daily chocolate. Maybe in moderation. =)

I guess it’s a good thing I won Kelsey’s giveaway over at snackingsquirrel.com. I’ve never won a giveaway and this was very exciting, lol. Thank you Kels!
