The Curl Smiler

About Me

First I want to start off by saying LOVE and EMBRACE your hair, all textures are BEAUTIFUL. 

If you follow me on Youtube (HappilyNaturalLit26) or Instagram (HappilyNaturalLit26) you know how passionate I am about natural hair. I love all types of hair from tightly coiled, to loose curls, to no curl. Why am I so passionate about natural hair? It goes back to slavery. When the slave trades first emerged, over 300 Africans were collected at a time and before they set sail every slaves hair was shaved off. Mostly due to sanitary reasons some say, but whatever the reasoning, shaving the slaves heads was the first step of stripping the slaves of their identity and lowering their status. In addition, slave masters and mistresses often told slave children to refer to their hair as wool and encouraged young slaves not to like their own hair. How terrible is that? I get so angry every time I think about it. Since I have such a passion for loving and embracing natural hair I have started an apparel line called Natural Encouragement (www.NaturalEncouragement.bigcartel.com). Any one who knows me knows that I am doing this out of pure love for our hair. I even support hair that's not real but resembles natural hair (i.e. HeatFreeHair). I wear everything that I am selling and I can honestly tell you  that it is an amazing feeling to not only embrace my kinky/curly hair but to wear a t-shirt that expresses how much I am in love with my natural beauty. My dream goal is to see my apparel made not only for adults but for children and placed in all major and small business retail stores across the nation. Anything is possible right? Please take a few minutes to browse the site www.NaturalEncouragement.bigcartel.com. I use only the best material so please excuse the pricing. Hopefully you will enjoy your visit as I am very amusing. Clothing will be available for sale really soon. God Bess.
