What this journey has taught me…is that I Am Enough…just the way I am.
It has also taught me that as women, we CAN make better, more informed hair choices…because sometimes the damage is self inflicted due to lack of knowledge.
If I can give anyone advice…seek help as soon as possible. Sometimes, you CAN prevent further and permanent damage.
Just know…you are not alone. #KnowledgeIsPower #HairStoration #BeEmpowered"
