Hair Story with Funke Ayo Dipeolu
I decided to go natural in Nov 2008 but didn’t cut my hair until March 2009.
Since I had made the decision to go natural, I stopped retouching my hair and waited to have “undergrowth” before cutting it. Deciding to go natural wasn’t a spur of the moment decision with me. I had been toying with the idea in my mind since 2007 when I found out it was possible and people were into it and It wasn’t as bad as we’ve been programmed to think it is. But before then I had always thought being natural was uncool and you had to be a fire breathing dragon for the Lord for you to do it. I stopped retouching for like six months, cut it after and grew it out.
Most people ask if I have a calling or change of faith or something. Mostly people are just kind of perplexed and can’t seem to understand why I would want to go natural in this time and age.
