My Rant: 

I feel the need to address the elephant in the room. I have noticed lately that there are some naturals that aren’t being so honest when it comes to interacting with their audiences on social media, and I think that it is crazy. Why lie and become a curly imposter? Why not just keep it real? The choice to be natural is supposed to your own journey and for your own person reasons, not just because everyone else is doing it.

I look at it as a win-win situation. Lying just creates drama, confusion, and questions.
