Why is my hair natural?

I don't think it was a heritage thing for me as it was for freedom.  And then there is the issue of style.  It never goes out of style and that is why I wear my hair natural.  I mistakenly thought that my hair would grow even faster if I didn't have the relaxers or dyes.  My hair was a mess and it was time to no longer be in the transition phase.  My hair tends to grow fast, about 2/3 an inch per month and it would take a couple of weeks to grow whatever hair I pluck out or cut.  I do have a thing about cutting my hair but not for the sake of cutting my hair.  At an awkward stage, I wouldn't know what to do.  It has been over 20 years since my hair has been natural and that includes with the hot comb.  I never thought much about black pride and my hair.  I love my hair even more now than I had in years.  I no longer have any fears that go with taking my hair for granted because I no longer take my hair for granted.  I live in a house where my mother use a hot comb almost daily and I pressed my hair daily.  Now I don't have to worry about straightening, flat-ironing, blow-drying, or even chemicals or dyes.  It is just like a weight has been lifted off of me.  That is why I have natural hair.
