Anderson:On the red carpet for the Oscars last year you changed your look… kind of and it seemed to flip people out. People were writing about this, blogging about this. And Gabby at the Olympics recently, when she did really well I saw people commenting about her hair and stuff. I just thought it really odd that people notice this so much. Do you find it strange that people comment on how you appear so much?
That’s how I felt about my hair, which is one big reason why I’ve been going all natural for over 10 months. I love it and be makes me feel so free, not being a slave to styling tools and feeling that my hair must be straight because it’ll make me more attractive. It’s not the truth, I wish more women realized that the more you look like your natural self, the more your God given beauty shines through. It’s nice to have a change from time to time but don’t let our people’s standards of beauty mean more that your own standard.
