Natural For Life?

Earlier this week, Nicole Ari Parker expressed her love for her natural hair in the form of several tweets.  She talks about all the things she can now do since her new found freedom and how she will never relax her again one day. 

I’ve also heard many stories of women who go natural only to return to the relaxer.  I was one of them.  It is not something I'll ever do again but I recognize it is not that serious for some.  There are women who go back and forth between relaxing and not relaxing frequently.

Nostalgia: a wistful desire to return in thought or in fact to a former time in one's life, to one's home or homeland, or to one's family and friends; a sentimental yearning for the happiness of a former place or time:

Will you ever relax again or are you team natural for life?

I'd never relax again. I can't believe I went through the PAID of the relaxer and blowdry process for as long as I did, and spent the money on it.

I will never relax my hair again. If I get a hankering for straight hair I can wear wigs,however, I don't miss that look as much as I thought I would.

I don't have plans to relax again. I like the versatility of not having a relaxer. Besides, I can get my hair flat ironed and achieve the same look, so I cool with that.
