“I have been natural most of my life,” begins St. Maarten Natural, Clara Reyes.

“The time first time I straightened my hair was for my confirmation. Hated it; hated it. My hair felt dead, thin, lifeless. I cut that off as soon as I could and was natural again after that.

"The next time [I straightened my hair] was for a production. My character needed long hair; the company I worked for paid for the hair. When that production was [over I ]cut out the straight and went natural again. [I’ve] been natural ever since; that was 1991………… energy… energy life energy…antennas to the universe.”

Exactly, Clara.
