Kinky Hair Monologue: A New Natural Resource

By: Tori from A Kinky Hair Monologue

Do you remember why you decided to go natural? Was it a split decision? Did a bad perm or color treatment leave your hair so damaged you had no choice but to BC? My decision process was more like a marathon than a sprint. I thought about it seriously on and off over the course of a year. During that time, my thinning hairline started to reveal actual bald spots. After that – I was done.

Chris-Tia Donaldson recalls her decision to go natural and all the emotional challenges and blessings of that choice in her new book, Thank God I’m Natural. It’s featured in the November issue of Essence (page 45). Essence describes it as “a natural hair bible” complete with “concrete care and styling tips.”

I had the opportunity to meet Chris-Tia last Sunday at the Natural Hair and Health Show in Chicago where she was signing copies of her book. I wanted to introduce myself since she sent me one – so I got in line. First of all – her hair is too cute. She was rockin’ this hot rodset. But more importantly, she’s one of the nicest people I ever met. She’s smart, friendly and super passionate about natural hair. I interviewed her for the blog – but I screwed up the video file! (Arrghh). But here’s an interview from her appearance on WGN (a local Chicago station). To learn more about Chris-Tia and how you can order her book, go to ThankGodImNatural.
