I know how important your support and the support of others has been in my journey. I would love to honor you for this and use your story to motivate and encourage other women who are contemplating going natural, who never thought about going natural, who are transitioning, who just did their Big Chop, and those who have been natural for years!
Here are the options

Newly naturals are always inspired by the awesome growth naturalistas experience throughout their journey. (Include a caption for each pic or a more detailed account). (Examples)
