This week we are gathering in the living room to talk about natural hair. I began my natural hair journey 12 years ago and I wrote “Letter to My Hair” as a result. Tune in to this episode to hear about what made me do the Big Chop, how I learned to rock my TWA, and how this poem became a part of the story of how I became a poetic partner with PATTERN beauty.
