I started wearing my hair natural my freshmen year of college. I was getting perms from the 5th grade until my senior year of highschool. I have no idea why I was perming my hair because I was playing competitive basketball year around since the 3rd grade. Well I starting playing D1 ball and there was absolutely no point of trying to keep my hair straight because we practiced and worked out 5 hours everyday. I cut off 3 off inches of my hair the beginning of this year and now look at it... it has a life of its own! People are always saying I look like a lion when I wear my hair out and wear leopard print so I wanted to do a self portrait of my "lion phase." These pictures are about my hair's personality lol an it is an extension of me. I have CHANGED SOOO MUCH since highschool and my freshmen year of college. I used to be a tom boy and now I have this overwhelming feeling of power because of my newly found femininity.
