Society expects so much from the black woman, yet has such low expectations of us. And by “society”, I mean everyone, including those in the black community. This is how (from my perspective) society communicates to the black woman on more than enough occasions. It just stands there with a sly smile on its face, telling us how irrelevant we are. It’s up to us to stand up for our beliefs. We are beautiful. We are interesting. We come in many shades, many beliefs and backgrounds. We don’t all think the same way. And we are all worthy.

424614 asked: For your Havana twists, did you buy the hair at that length or did it need to be cut? I want shoulder length twists, but I thought it wouldn't work with the chunkier twists. It looks so good on you! 😊
Thanks love! It was cut by my hairstylist.
