Before we begin sharing this Gorgeous Beauty's story, we'd like to personally thank you Natalie for your undying support, your donations, and most importantly your ability to stay true to who you are. You are such a beautiful person and we couldn't ask for better support than what you have shown towards The Bald Movement. Congratulations on being selected as
Baldie of the Month of June.
Tell us a bit about your decision to cut your hair or why you went bald? I'm bald by Alopecia and by choice. For eight years,I had long waist length dreadlocks. In summer 2013,they began to slowly fall out,and eventually I cut the remaining locks off. Then,I was admitted to the hospital for an unknown infection which nearly cost me my life...twice. During that time,I realized that I don't need hair to be beautiful,or to justify my femininity. So,as my hair began to slowly grow back,I made the choice to shave my hair on my 34th birthday,and it has been the best decision of my life.
Do you feel you've changed for the better since you went bald? Absolutely! I feel more confident and beautiful. It's absolute freedom!
What words of encouragement would you share with someone who isn't confident with themselves as you are? There are more important things in life than hair. Be blessed to have your health and loved ones.
Finish this sentence: (My) Bald is is bold,confident and beautiful!
