Tia Johnsont - I'm more confident more empowered and even more beautiful than I was with those weaves and wigs!!!
Tell us a bit about your decision to cut your hair or why you are bald? I have been diagnosed with Alopecia since the age of about 3, I have had times through out my life where I have had a head full of hair, may have thrown a couple of tracks in to make it a little bit fuller, you know when your young and in school where everyone has hair and you don't want to be an outcast you do whatever you need to do to fit in and not bring attention to yourself. I would say at about the age of 22 or 23 my hair started getting thinner and thinner and I then was bound to wearing wigs (so so hot lol) I'm now 29 and just got up enough courage to just cut off the patches I had and go bald. Of course something led up to this... I was called an ugly bald headed B**** by someone who I cared about deeply, of course this hurt my feelings, I cried and was depressed, but I had to prove him wrong!
Do you feel you've changed for the better since you went bald? Yes absolutely! I feel that I'm more confident more empowered and even more beautiful than I was with those weaves and wigs!!! I thank GOD for peace and understanding of my condition and I'm blessed to be an inspiration to others!!!!
What words of encouragement would you share with someone who isn't confident with themselves as you are? Hair does not define make nor break you, its the love you have for yourself and for others that makes you a better person!!!!! Be yourself no need to mask who you are for others
Finish this sentence: (My) Bald is Beautiful and Empowering!!!!
