Ugh why am I NOW watching this video? I heard about Zina Saro-Wiwa about a few months ago and her movie but I never followed up on it. Luckily, as I was flipping through a health magazine the other day, I saw an article about Zina and I immediately went online to check out the video.

This 6 minute video is truthful and raw. The video begins with her doing her big chop and in her words saying, "Yeah, this isn't attractive" as she looks at herself in the mirror after she does the big chop. But what is interesting to see is the transition of her thoughts and outlook of going natural in only a span of 7 months. She goes through the obsession with other naturals and their hair to finally accepting her hair and natural beauty. I absolutely love her take on going natural and her positivity that goes with it.

This video is an eye opener to those who are transitioning or to those who have been natural for years. You can check out the video here and the article here.
