For the longest time, it was ingrained in me that natural hair styles (as Black people) were unprofessional and unkept. It took some growth within as well as a shift in how society began to become "woke", for me to break that frame of thought. I began my natural hair journey just about 8 years ago. At that time, and still today, it was difficult to find a store that catered to the needs of my natural path. Often times I would have to travel out of my neighborhood to find a store that had products and would then encounter 1 of 3 scenarios. Either the selection was sparse and staff had no knowledge about products, the "ethnic" products are locked away and need a manager to unlock, or the store is operated by individuals that don't respect me as a person. This is where my motivation comes from. Wanting to provide for someone else what I have struggled to find retail wise.
